International Children's Surgical Foundation
All profits from my photography currently go to ICSF, a wonderful, low-overhead organization based in Boise, ID. ICSF takes teams of volunteer doctors and nurses to perform facial reconstruction surgery on children in poor, third-world countries around the globe. I've been able to dive in many such countries, and see first hand the children there. Supporting a cause that takes "the least of these" from a future lifetime as outcasts to having a chance at a normal life is extremely rewarding.
My company and I have been able to raise and donate over $20,000 to ICSF so far. If you don't buy anything here on my website, I encourage you to go to their website and make a donation yourself - every dollar will help!
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Foundation
In 2007, I produced a calendar of my underwater photos to raise money for the PKD Foundation. My company, Appropriate Balance (www.abfsnw.com) paid for all the production costs, so ALL proceeds (more than $12,000) went to the PKD Foundation to increase awareness of PKD and fund research to find a cure!
