...BUY A PHOTO : SUPPORT AN ORGANIZATION
100% of all jmp income currently supports our current mission.
our commitment has been to donate 10% to *partners who work hand-in-hand and face-to-face with those caught within an injustice - specifically anti-trafficking organizations. we are currently in full-time missions and all income supports what we are currently doing as a family. our commitment remains the same in that from this, we still donate 10% towards organizations. organizations are chosen based on their mission statement, their current & future goals/projects, the justice issues they target and, their financial needs. in certain situations, specific organizations will receive photographic donations for promotional use instead of, or in addition to, financial contributions. jMP bases this on direct involvement within a jMP project.
jMP focuses on specific issues such as, but not limited to: street children; crisis pregnancy; the sex industry and trafficking; and, infanticide within Brazil.
jMP goal: with growth in jMP business, it is our hope to raise the donation percentage to these and other future partners!
10% of our family income is donated to our partners. we know each of the following personally and recommend you click on each to learn more about how you might be able to get involved to make a difference in the life of even one child or adult.
