Amy's Holiday Party

In December, we were asked to photograph a wonderful event called Amy's Holiday Party. Since she was 13 years old, Amy Zeide has been organizing and hosting this party for homeless, foster and refugee children in the Atlanta area. What started as a party for 25 children has turned into a massive event for 800+ children and their families, 300 volunteers, countless donations of toys and games. We love donating our time to events like this. Seeing how much the children and their families were affected by the party was so meaningful and was a great reminder of what is really important in the midst all the chaos of the holiday season.

Here are some highlights from the day.

The event took place at the Holiday Inn Turner Field.
Thankfully the snow flurries didn't seem to keep anyone away.

An entire room was filled with toys and each child chose two to take with them.

One of the many games the kids played.

The butterfly on her face made this little girl SO happy.

WSB TV interviews Amy about the event.

Jason's Deli donated lunch for everyone.

So excited to have a new truck for Christmas!
