Our Story

My name is Shannon and I am a professional photographer, and I also work with a non-profit organisation doing amazing work for refugees throughout Europe and the USA called Lifting Hands International.  The refugee situation is not going away, actually it's getting worse.  For example currently there are thousands of people stuck on freezing cold islands in Greece with no resources and no one is helping them.  They are on the brink of freezing to death, desperate in way not one of us can understand.  Lifting Hands International is a small, grass-roots non-profit doing the real work.  The money LHI receives goes directly to help the neediest refugees, including the people on these icy islands and others suffering in camps throughout Europe.  I have been in these refugee camps and looked into their faces.  I dream about these people every night, and I am committed to doing what I can to make sure they are not forgotten.  Please join me in helping.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR DONATIONS!  THE PRINT OFFER IS NOW CLOSED.  ANY FURTHER DONATIONS TO THIS PAGE WILL STILL GO DIRECTLY TO LIFTING HANDS INTERNATIONAL TO AID REFUGEES, BUT NO FURTHER PRINTS OFFERED AT THIS TIME.  THANK YOU FOR SUCH AN AMAZING RESPONSE TO THIS FUNDRAISER!  

How can you help?  Two simple ways.  For every $50 (or £ equivalent) donation I will send you a print from my fine art collection, a beautiful image for you to adorn your walls.  Or something to give as a gift for Mother's Day or Father's Day this year, or any other occasion.  Great gift idea for men and women, and you're helping refugees at the same time!  You can choose from a selection of images I have shot all over the world.  I produce the high quality print for you AND ship it to you both at my expense and Lifting Hands International receives 100% of your $50 donation to use to help refugees!  

1.  GET AN 8x12 PRINT: By making a $50 donation on this page you can choose any print from my fine art print catalogue, scroll through the five samples above on this page and find the full gallery on my website--please visit my website to see the full gallery of options as there are over 70 images to choose from!  http://www.shannonashtonphotography.com/inspire-purchase-catalogue/ 

**please note this is only valid for US or UK, I cannot ship to locations outside of the US or UK**

***if you want a larger size than 8x12, I can arrange that for a larger donation, please inquire***

2. If you are moved to help but don't wish to purchase a print, make a donation directly on this page in any amount, even $5 makes a difference!  

My goal is to raise at least $3000 before the daffodils begin to rise by the 31st January to help these people through the winter.
