Besides working diligently on client projects, we try to use our talents to help our world community. Recently, we donated some time to our friends at WITNESS whose goal is to document Human Rights' Abuses around the world. They use videos as well as other mediums to lobby for new laws that will work towards correcting these horrific acts. To learn more about WITNESS, go to www.witness.org We also donate financially toward a national non profit animal protection organization named the Farm Sanctuary. Through the organization's Adopt-A-Farm Animal Project, NMP adopted a cuddly sheep appropriately named Huggy Bear to bring him to a safe haven for rescued farm animals. To learn how to help and promote awareness of the cruelty of factory farming visit www.farmsanctuary.com. When the holiday season arrives we extend our generosity by spreading it's benevolent spirit amongst our long-time clients. With the help of UNICEF, NMP gives out donations on behalf of its client to aid the world's neediest children as a thoughtful holiday gift. To learn more about UNICEF and how you can lend a helping hand to the world's less fortunate children go to www.unicefusa.org Being the animal lovers that we are, we also like to make donations on behalf of our clients to The Humane Society of the United States which is an organization that promotes the protection of animals and fights against animal cruelty. To learn more about the nation's largest animal protection organization log on to www.hsus.org Along with time, our donations include provisions as well. After our studio shoots we often have extra food which we donate to charitable organizations. One of these is The Bowery Mission, a local establishment that aids the homeless in our neighborhood. To learn more about one of New York's longest running social service agencies go to www.bowery.org. Even during non-holiday periods we continue to aid causes we care about; such as helping the New Canaan Mounted Troop provide a better home for their horses. This one of a kind non-profit organization creates an environment where young people from all walks of life -- regardless of athletic ability and financial means -- are taught life lessons through the lens of horsemanship. NMP provided the organization with its time and talents to create a fundraiser video to help NCMT build a new barn for their horses. www.newcanaanmountedtroop.org.
