“I have been focused in animal welfare, and human rights since the beginning of my business. I work for free at Barn Sanctuary, photographing and making videos for their marketing content. I also often do shoots that are 75 percent donated to them. I focus in a lot of animal welfare causes, and used to donate several hours a week to the humane society as well, however I also am a huge advocate in body positivity and confidence. I often do shoots for free to help women see how beautiful they really are, and lately I have been adding men to this positivity refocus session as well.” – – Ashley of Apaige Photography

I am a watercolor artist and a stationery designer, and I currently focus on weddings, but I am also expanding in to everyday stationery this year. I love painting invitations designs that have super personal touches that are special to the couple, so they have a true keepsake that represents their life together. I have always been a volunteer and philanthropist in some capacity. I have volunteered on and off since middle school. I ran the philanthropy committee of my sorority in college, which benefited Children’s Miracle Network. I already have a charity pledge as part of my business that I added a year and a half ago. I have a process for charities to apply for donated services and stationery. I also have some stationery that directly benefits a charity. I know the donation type only lets me pick one, but I donate all three (time, profit, product) as I am able :). I also give to multiple charities. I have strict rules for the charities I support and I check their ratings on charitywatch.org before deciding to give.

Cherish Creations specializes in custom celebrations and correspondence. What does this mean exactly? It means we love people, parties, and paper, particularly wedding paper. From save the dates to one-of-a-kind monogramed cups, we help you create a suite that embodies not only your wedding but the love you have for one another. We don’t believe that one design fits every client, so when we say “custom” we really mean it.
James 1:17 reminds us that every good gift is from God, and we’re blessed to pass on what God has given us and what isn’t really ours. A portion of each order goes to support the following causes, which we have the great pleasure of giving to: International Justice Mission // Works globally to rescue victims, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors, and strengthen justice systems. They fight against slavery, sex trafficking, sexual violence, police brutality, and citizens rights abuse. #StandforLife // A movement that deeply loves all parties involved – mothers, fathers, children and entire families. They work through story telling, stories impact people on a heart level, and as a result, communities are being empowered to influence generations. Pure Hope // Has a vision of a world free of sexual exploitation and brokenness. They work toward that through providing Christian solutions in a sexualized culture by equipping individuals, families, and churches to pursue sexual purity and oppose sexual exploitation. Family Research Council // Their vision is a culture in which human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives. First Liberty // Their mission is to defend and restore religious liberty across America—in our schools, for our churches, inside the military, and throughout the public arena. Thrive Women’s Clinic // Offers compassionate care to women and their partners experiencing unplanned pregnancy. Thrive specializes in pregnancy confirmation and options counseling. All services are free. Kanakuk Institute // Equips men and women for a lifetime of ministry through an eight-month graduate discipleship program based on Biblical truth.
