As a portrait Charity, we get emails all the time asking for names of similar organizations that cater to families and people that we, unfortunately, cannot take on.
Thankfully, we have come across an organization called Shutter Mission. This is such an amazing resource for us, other photographers who are looking to give back, and for families looking for a charity that fits their specific needs.
They list everything from adoptions, children in the NICU, military families, to animal rescue. Please check them out or email us and we can help direct you in the right direction.
We are an inter-disciplinary team – consisting of a diverse group of healthcare professionals, support staff and volunteers, who provide 24-hour/7-days a week care and support.
Idic15 Canada is a not for profit organization which provides resources, collaboration, advocacy and research to families living with Chromosome 15q11-13 Duplication Syndrome.
This organization is born from the need to advance medical, family resources and awareness in Canada. There are over 40 known families in Canada, but many areas of the country are not diagnosing the disorder because of lack of medical awareness. Idic15 Canada is connected to a global community of Idic15 families through a Facebook outreach and Twitter and intend to be a transparent organization with international scientific and medical collaboration as our cornerstones.

We are a group of parents, clinicians, and scientists who have come together for one purpose – to improve the lives of children affected by rare diseases. We believe that life sciences research and infrastructure can be re-organized to deliver rapid and efficient solutions to patient care problems. We will accomplish this by breaking down the walls that separate research and care in traditional translational research to replace it with a new model for delivering research solutions – translational care. For children with rare diseases, the more conventional processes and timeline of research does not meet their needs. For these patients, research is care. We intend to deliver a multifaceted approach; we endeavour to:
• Perform treatment-focused research into rare diseases
• Provide research grants to directly improve patient care
• Foster the organization of the rare disease community in BC
• Organize families for mutual support regardless of diagnosis
• Advocate to enhance care for those affected by rare diseases
• Build infrastructure to ensure the sustainability of our programs
