Thank a Pre-Veteran through Military Connections

Make your portrait make a difference to soldiers and sailors overseas

Mention “Veterans Day” when you order a portrait or gift certificate and I will donate 10% of your order to send a bundle of care to our service members overseas.

Military Connections, a worthy non-profit organization here in Pittsburgh, has been sending care packages to the troops overseas for eight years. Director Summer Tissue founded the organization when her brother was deployed to Afghanistan in the early years of the war. He is home safe, but Summer still spends here evenings and weekends putting together packages that let our fighting men and women know how much we appreciate them.

Even if you don’t plan to commission a portrait, you can help by sponsoring a Christmas stocking for just $10.35. Or donate leftover Halloween candy. Get details on the Military Connections website.

Contact me to commission either a portrait of either a person or a pet or find out more about portrait gift certificates. Don’t forget to mention “Veterans Day”!
