Pictures For A PURPOSE

Our Eastside Women of Purpose group is having our 2nd Annual Pictures for a Purpose on Saturday, October 10th.

If you're local, go to our WEBSITE and sign up to have your child's picture taken (if you register now, you will receive an Early Bird Discount as well as a prime slot with the photographer of your choice!).

All of the sitting fees and a majority of the cost of prints go directly to STOPPING child trafficking.

Six, amazingly talented local photographers donate their entire day, talent and equipment to this important cause.

Looking to Educate

One of our primary goals is to spread the word about human trafficking. Modern day slavery is a HUGE worldwide problem and is growing by the day. The more people that know, the more we can inspire others to do something to help save lives right here in our state and beyond.

Eastside Women of Purpose is looking for opportunities to share what we've learned about human trafficking with others--including first-hand experiences from the ground in Thailand with amazing photos taken from unbelievable professional photographers in our group. If you would like us to come & do a presentation for your school, youth group, MOPS program, life group etc. we would love to hear from you. Please contact us at EastsideWOP@gmail.com.
