AIM Fundraising Effort Continues for Easter during Visits with the Easter Bunny
ORLANDO, FL (February 11, 2016) – On January 28, 2016, WorldWide Photography (WWP), part of the Event Photography Group (EPG) portfolio of brands, presented a check for $158,849 to Adventures in Movement (AIM), a national non-profit that uses movement and music to teach children with special needs. The two have been partners since 2010 and with the latest donation, total contributions to the organization have now reached $750,000.
The ceremony took place at The PGA Merchandise Show where Steve Hardin, WWP’s Senior Vice President of Client Relations presented the donation to Nancy Lopez, Chairman of the National Ambassadors to AIM, former three-time LPGA champion, winner of 48 LPGA events and World Golf Hall of Famer and Dr. Jo A. Geiger, National Executive Director of AIM. Also present were Jennifer Fitzgerald (Director of Consumer Marketing), Karen Lamb (Director of Human Resources), Michelle Jagers (Chief Administrative Officer – Internal Operations) and Anne Munson (Chief Operating Officer – External Operations) from EPG’s leadership team.
Donations were collected during the 2015 holiday season by WWP at their flagship My Santa Experience event locations at more than 330 malls nationwide. As families participated in the annual tradition of taking photos with Santa Claus, parents were invited to donate a minimum of $1 during their visit to have a personalized letter sent to their child from Santa with all of the proceeds going to AIM.
“We are proud to have raised $750,000 dollars to-date for AIM through our Santa and Easter Bunny experiences,” said WWP’s Steve Hardin. “AIM is an organization that is really making a difference for children with special needs. We are honored to have worked with them for over seven years, and WorldWide Photography looks forward to continuing to partner with this life-changing organization for years to come.”
“Having been involved with AIM for more than three decades, I am ecstatic to see just how much the group has been able to raise with the help of WorldWide Photography,” said Nancy Lopez. “The work that AIM does is incredible and to hear about this success is just a testament to how important of an organization it truly is.”
WWP will continue their donation efforts during the Easter season where parents can donate a minimum of $1 at any of the participating malls and have a personalized letter sent to their child from the Easter Bunny, with all proceedings going to AIM. Parents can make a reservation online now to have their child take their photos with the Easter Bunny. Reservations can be made at myeasterexerience.com.
