One Day A Month

John Gress Chicago Photographer

I had a very busy day today… I met with an HIV / AIDS charity to discuss how I can volunteer my services to help them with their marketing initiatives. I did this last year for The Edge Alliance and helped them with a campaign for their Dining Out For Life event. After plastering my pictures all over buses and magazines, the charity raised more than three times what they usually raise from this event. It is my goal for 2011 to volunteer at least 12 days of my time to help others make the world a better place. I would like to challenge all of you to do the same… after all, it is only one day a month.

Chicago Charity Advertising Photography: Dining Out For Life

I had a the great fortune to donate my Chicago charity advertising photography services to Chicago’s Edge Alliance, which is involved in a wide range of initiatives that respond to the needs of the homeless, people living with HIV/AIDS, the disabled, and veterans.
