Why I’m No Longer “Fixing it in Photoshop” :)

Photography Black Friday Deals

by Lucas Martling on November 22, 2012

Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone gets to enjoy next few days with the ones you love!  That IS the most important part of the holidays, after all! :)

Since the internet goes “Gung HO” over Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals, I thought it might be a good idea to mix things up a bit to help out the victims of Hurricane Sandy instead.

From now until the end of the year, ALL affiliate sale proceeds we receive (at no extra cost to you) will be donated to the Red Cross The Hurricane Sandy – USA fund.  We figure if you’re going to take advantage of these deals, let’s make it count for those in need!

Again, it’s at no extra cost to you.  All you need to do is click through the links & banners below before you make any purchase from the retailers.  We’ll take care of the rest.

Please help us spread the message by sharing this link throughout your social media!

PS if you are looking to buy something in the future, be sure to BOOKMARK this site now.  Once you’re ready to buy, click on the link/banners below.  For the donations to count, you usually need to buy within 24 hours of clicking the links (these things expire).

Thank you for all your endless support, being a supporter of the site…now let’s raise a ton of money!
