The Bernie Marcus Foundation

Monday, September 15, 2008



In between some of my weddings I really enjoy working for non profits. I just get a wonderful feeling knowing that I am doing something to help with the community. Last week I had the esteemed pleasure to photograph the ground breaking for the new Home Depot Bernie Marcus Autism Hospitality Cottage. Bernie Marcus is the co-founder of The Home Depot along with Arthur Blank (now owner of the Atlanta Falcons). The energy-efficient facility will be the first overnight facility for families whose children are patients of the Marcus Autism Center.

I actually found myself tearing up thinking about all of the people this new center will help. Its not too late to donate your money or time this year to people in need!

Ross, Simply put . . . you rock! You seem to be such a positive young man. Continue to put God first, and share your gifts with others, and His Blessings will continue to flow!

Now, I'm tearing up. I have a brother with autism and the Marcus Autism center is a wonderful facility. To think that Bernie Marcus is still giving even after establishing such a phenomenal place.... Thanks for capturing the moment. Life is so much more fulfilling when you're sharing your blessings and spreading the love all around. It's paying it forward, as Oprah would say. Someone's gift has blessed you and your gift will bless someone else. Giving is truly the gift that keeps on giving. God Bless...

There is truly nothing better than giving back.! What you give out God restores. Continue to be a blessing to all of those and us as well.
