IHOD x Social Print Studio Print Packs for Charity

April 22, 2014

For those of you who follow along on instagram, you have seen sneak previews of the IHOD x Social Print Studio collaboration. Today is the day I finally get to share the full result along with reveal the purpose behind these print packs!

IHOD} Black and White Print Packs

One of Gabe’s best friends, Jim Campbell went out for a mission trip to Ecuador a few years ago to visit a site where missionaries were giving children from broken families and difficult financial situations clean water, food, clothing, and health care. Funds were running low and he knew there was a great need.  He came back to his job in NYC with a conviction to do more, which is when he started Mission Santa Maria, and has moved mountains with this organization since! He is actually over there as we speak and sharing pics on their brand new instagram account.

My son Gabriel started thriving when he started school this year. So much excitement and zeal for life! I mean the boy practically jumps out of bed. He is so proud when his teacher tells him he is doing a good job or he gets to help a friend. He will give me the full report about the letter of the week too. My hope is to give that same enthusiasm for life to some of these children whose lives are looking bleak and hopeless. A good environment, motivation to learn, and someone telling them they are valued enough to teach and spend time with can make all the difference in a child’s spirit. It opens the future wide open!

Gabe and I always talk about how we wish we could physically go and help Jim with his work there, and since that isn’t an option at this time in our life, the next best thing we can do is to help get the funds over there! They do a fantastic job sending photo updates through their monthly newsletter too. 

So here is the breakdown!

  • This print pack is a series of black and white 4×4 inch photos all taken by iphone, edited in VSCO, and printed through Social Print Studio (who so graciously agreed to this project!). 
  • 1 Print pack at $15 = 1 month of education for a child at Mission Santa Maria. 100% of the proceeds go directly to this cause.
  • Your print pack will come with the 5 black and white prints and wrapped in twine. I will be hand writing one of my favorite quotes and a note along with to thank you. The first 20 orders will get a surprise 6th print;)

You can purchase directly here through paypal!

I humbly ask you help spread the word about these print packs! A share on facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter, email….either would be a great help! My goal is to raise enough money to send 5 children to school for a year, and I would so appreciate it!

Much love, Anna

“May light always surround you; Hope kindle and rebound you. May your hurts turn to healing; Heart embrace feeling. May wounds become wisdom; Every kindness a prism. May laughter infect you; Your passion resurrect you. May goodness inspire your deepest desires. Through all that you reach for, May your arms never tire.” -D. Simone

    I must be missing something – when I click on the “buy now” button through paypal it takes me to the image? Can you please repost the link?

    I think this is so great Anna!

    • So sorry about that Sarah! It is working for me and there are orders going through so not sure what is up:/ I can just send you a paypal invoice if you leave your paypal email address! Thanks so much for supporting!

  • Just got mine & one to give a friend – So awesome Anna!! Love you. PS, the “Buy Now” button gave me issues in Firefox, but in Chrome was fine – it is a browser thang.

  • These are beautiful! What an exciting and thoughtful project. If you and Gabe ever want to escape for a week to help this foundation you know we would take those three littles in a heartbeat (and Caiden would be in friend heaven).

  • Beautiful + amazing work, Anna! I love how you’re doing what you can to help better the lives of others! Education is SO important, especially for women, in under-developed countries and I love that you’re doing this. Sharing as much as I can…Also, I’d love to support and buy a pack but the PayPal button is not working for me here…do you mind emailing me a link? Thanks my dear! xo

    • Education places so much strength, confidence, a sense of pride, dignity, worth, and more to these children. I so agree with you! And I am sorry for the trouble! I think it depends which browser you use. Will just send you an invoice. Thank you for the support Jessica!! x

  • Such beautiful paper and cause, thank you for sharing this loveliness, Anna!

    Wow! Thank you for informing us all about such a beautiful mission! As a previous high school educator (sophomore English and Acting), I am touched in a special way and intend to pass along this information to my friends and family — everyone should know about such a selfless mission! Just placed my first order; you sold me with “100% of the proceeds go directly to this cause.” 🙂 Also keeping Mission Santa Maria in my prayers for the continued success of their outreach.

  • Marchelle

    Oops! p.s. – beautiful prints! I’m excited to find a prominent place in my home to hang them. They’ll be a great conversation piece and a way to promote both your endeavors and theirs!
