Brighter Smiles for Pre-schoolers on St. Kitts

Help support a worthy cause. Click on the link and purchase a book or 10.

This year ISF, Jaxon Photography’s charity is focusing on brightening smiles in St. Kitts-Nevis. Positive self image is an important part of a child’s success and dental hygiene is a key component of building a child’s self esteem. As a result we are donating packages of dental supplies and a fun story and activity book that encourages children to care for their teeth, limit sweets, and to see a dentist. Each package will include a toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, and a copy of Smile Bright by Jazey Wallace of  St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
You can help by donating directly to the cause or by purchasing copies of the book directly from the publisher at a discounted price of US$5.75.
Support this worthy cause and help us reach our goal of bringing winning smiles to 350 children this year.
Follow this link for more details on purchasing the book and to make your donation.

2. Clarance Fitzroy Bryant College, School of Nursing Donation

In 2016, with the help of our donors, we sent over 30 boxes of  equipment and supplies (valued at about $40K) to the nurses’ clinical skills laboratory at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) in St. Kitts-Nevis. The items are being used in the Health Science Division by the nursing students as they strive to develop their confidence and competence in clinical nursing practice. The skills they learn at the school will be put to use in the islands’ hospitals and improve the health care offered to the population. Below are photographs of volunteers packing boxes and students of CFBC school of nursing using the donated supplies. Thanks to all our supporters and friends for their valiant efforts.Volunteers pack boxes of donated medical supplies for CFBC in St. Kitts
On the Saturday before Christmas in 2014, some of our photographers, friends and volunteers gathered at our studio for our second annual senior care project. Its purpose is to do our bit to be part of the solution to help our neighbors. Joining us in doing their part this year were Louisa Cox, Veronica Thomas, Jarrod Harris, Cedric Griffin, Michael Carr, Sonya McGee our two student volunteers Brittany, Jalen and of course Terrell Clark captured the moment for us. We made 50 care boxes for needy seniors around the city. The packages were delivered to churches who then arranged for distribution to the most needy parishioners.

 

Thanks to all who donated, volunteered and distributed the packages to those in need. The focus of the Initial Step Foundation is to encourage generosity to our neighbors.

 

ISF 2013

Launch and Care Box Delivery

In the 2013 holiday season we launched the Initial Step Foundation the charity arm of the team at Atlanta Wedding Photographers, Jaxon Photography.

The focus of the Initial Step Foundation charity is to encourage generosity to our neighbors. For our first project we made 50 care boxes that we delivered to neighborhood churches for needy seniors in their congregation.

This effort would not have been possible without the support of our clients, so many thanks to you all. These gifts were made on your behalf. Also my friends, who led by example, gave of their time and resources and came to the studio to pack boxes on their day off. I look forward to your continued support as we move forward.  ISF charity is fully funded by Jaxon Photography with lots of generous support from our friends.Initial Step Foundation VolunteersISF holiday boxes
