ORANGE PHOTOGRAPHY ANNOUNCES ‘SOCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY’ PROGRAM BENEFITTING SAN FRANCISCO NON-PROFITS

The Pioneer in Digital Event and Wedding Photography Reaches out to Aid Non-Profit, Charitable, and Community Organizations

SAN FRANCISCO – March 18, 2003 - Orange Photography is proud to present a program that reflects the company’s values as well as the power of photography. The ‘Social Photography’ program is an opportunity for Orange Photography to give back to the community by offering creative talent to organizations that rarely have photography within their budget.

Once a month, a qualifying charitable/non-profit organization will be chosen to donate both services and revenues from the sale of reprints on the www.orangeexpsure.com website. From documenting social conditions to fundraisers, Orange Photography has the talent and resources to bring photography to every level of social strata. We believe the power of photography and compassion can enrich the lives of people in our community. Accordingly, we hope to cultivate opportunities so that we can put our beliefs into action.

“As individuals with a strong sense of community and compassion, we decided to integrate those beliefs into our organization in order to plant the appropriate seeds of growth,” stated Jack Huynh, CEO of Orange Photography. “All too often we postpone our philanthropic efforts until we’ve make it in the business world but I feel it is important to introduce the Social Photography program at the formative stages of our organization. As we grow, these values will provide a meaningful context for growth as well as keep the organization connected to its roots. We hope our community members will take advantage of this opportunity and reinforce the basic premise that we are all connected.”

Already several charities have jumped on board including the Big Bam! Foundation, Inc. who’s mission is to eradicate breast cancer by providing materials for health education, as well as medical services for women over forty, the underserved, and Latinas who experience age, financial or cultural barriers that inhibit early detection of breast cancer.

“We’ve worked with the Orange Photography team for several events and have been thrilled with their photography and attitude. With their new Social Photography program, they will be able to help the Big Bam Foundation reach and exceed our goals of raising awareness and funding even more free screening days,” said Janice Bonadio, founder of the Big Bam Foundation and breast cancer survivor.

The Academy of Friends also has continued to support Orange Photography and the Social Photography program.

“Academy of Friends is very pleased to be working with the Orange Photography team again this year and with the introduction of the Social Photography program at our 23rd Annual Academy Awards Night Gala. Academy of Friends remains one of the leading contributors to Bay Area organizations serving those affected by HIV/AIDS and to date has donated $4.3 million to support diverse direct care and prevention programs. Last year, the Academy of Friends Gala raised and distributed $375,000 to agencies serving those whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS,” said Stephen Conneely, Executive Director, Academy of Friends.
