The goal of The Bottomless Toy Chest, is giving toys to children that are in the hospital with cancer. This is the third year they’ve asked for some help with photography for the “No-Show Black Tie” fundraiser. This would be a no-brainer even if Micky & Cindy weren’t loads of fun to work with. Unsurprisingly, toys are the subject. Micky & Cindy did all of the hard work of finding the dolls and props. First, go make a donation, then, let me know what you think.
The Bottomless Toy Chest
It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since the the last “No-Show Black Tie” fund raiser. The Bottomless Toy Chest delivers art projects, crafts and interactive games to hospitalized pediatric cancer patients. Toys are the subject again. It sorta fits. This is a Mr. Potato Head year. It was lots of fun playing toys and taking photos. We should all be heading over to The Bottomless Toy Chest do donate. Do it!
Ordinarily, my job is to grease the wheels of commerce. Not a bad thing, but not quite like Mother Teresa. My studio neighbor is The Bottomless Toy Chest. They take toys to kids with cancer in hospitals. When Micky came by and asked me if I could take a picture of trolls, I was all in. When I found out that the designer / art director was Cindy Sikorski, I was truly excited. On the shoot day Micky and Cindy did the styling, it’s tough to get those tiny clothes to look good on those inflexible little bodies. They did the hair too! It was loads of fun, and profoundly worth while.
