Why the Keep Smiling Project?

Our family started the "Keep Smiling Project" in memory of my dad, Alan J. Christensen, who passed away from Leukemia in 2006.  Everyone who knew my dad, knew he never closed a letter, phone call, or visit without saying "Keep Smiling!" It was in a way his personal motto and he lived it to the fullest. We know how difficult it is to have someone you love with Cancer and we want to help other families "Keep Smiling"  through those difficult times.  Our "Keep Smiling Project"  will help families fund medical costs, fun family outings, or other expenses.

Please help by participating in some of our fundraising efforts. All time, talent, and goods for the fundraising events have been donated and 100% of the money you donate will go to help these very deserving families.

If you have a family that you would like to nominate to receive some assistance or would like to participate in our current fundraising opportunities contact us at

Thank you!  Your support means the world to us!
                                                        Keep Smiling!

*Please note "The Keep Smiling Project" is not a licensed charity or non-profit organization. It's just our family's little way of helping people in honor of my Dad's memory.
100% of any money raised will go to help families affected by cancer and we will be openly and publicly accountable for how this money is spent so that you can share in the difference you are making by your donation.

Family Photo Shoots

Clay has decided to host some Mini Photo Shoot sessions and donate 100% of all the money earned to our Keep Smiling Project.

Here's the details
30-40 minute sessions

The first of these mini sessions will be held June 9, 2012.  The location is one of my favorites,  we like to call it  "The Poppies"  It's completely gorgeous and just to show you, here's a picture taken of our daughter at this location.
