I have always donated a portion of all of Jasmine Norris Photography sales each year to different causes. Giving back has always been a big part of my life and when I started my photography business, I knew I wanted to tie that into my business as well. I always give a portion of my donations to environmental causes because I believe that it is important to offset my carbon emissions and help keep our Earth healthy. The causes that are donated to change each year depending on the circumstances that may have happened that year. Below are the organizations that were supported this year and this is because of each of you who support my business! Thank you for making this possible!

This organization plants trees, fights deforestations, and invests in solar and wind power. They make it very easy to offset your carbon emissions that you make due to traveling, driving a car, living in your home, etc. I donated enough to cover my carbon emissions for the year for my business to offset things like me driving to weddings, flying to conferences, and using my computer, among other things. I was able to reduce over 32 Tonnes of CO2 Emissions this year (as well as in 2021, 2020, and 2019!).
Ukraine Red Cross
We all know the war the has happened and how it has affected the people of Ukraine. A donation was made to their Red Cross organization to assist relief efforts within Ukraine, to provide food and non-perishable food items, first aid kits, blankets and hygiene kits to people displaced within Ukraine.
Donations have also gone to several animal organizations to help with things such as building shelter for outside dogs, rescuing animals in need, and rehabilitating harmed animals.
One Tree Planted is a non profit that is focused on global reforestation. Since 2014, they have planted over 40 million trees in 47 countries.
I donated part of my services to Homes for our Troops to photograph the house dedication for Marine LCpl Bryan Chambers for Homes for our Troops. Homes for our Troops build and donate specially adapted custom homes for severely injured veterans to enable them to rebuild their lives.
If you have an organization that you'd love to see us support in 2023, let me know! :) It's because of all of you who book me as your wedding photographer that allow me to give back this way!!!!
