General TCPPA Charities Fund

The Twin Cities Professional Photographers Association fundraises throughout the year toward “TCPPA Charities” - our charitable giving efforts. This fund is divided between three beneficiaries:

  1. NILMDTS (Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep) – The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation administers a network of volunteer professional photographers who provide a helping hand and a healing heart to families who suffer the loss of a baby at birth or soon after. Volunteer photographers provide gentle, compassionate photographic services that allow families to honor and cherish their babies and to share the spirit of their lives. For more information, log on to
  2. Pet charity, to be determined, as needs arise.
  3. Members Helping Members – TCPPA fund to help members in the event of an emergency. Illness and other emergency situations happen when we are least expecting it. This fund, established in 2017, may be used to help a member with their emergency situation or to help with expenses as a result.

David Johnson 2019 Head Shaving Fundraiser

After sitting for an iconic Chris Knight Portrait earlier in 2019, David Johnson is ready to shave his head again for donations to the TCPPA charity fund. The TCPPA Charity fund recipients are NILMDTS, an animal charity TBD and the TCPPA members helping members fund.

Dave, known for his long hair, beard and, of course, Diet Coke has been a long time member of TCPPA, serving as board member and President in 2003 invites you do donate to see his head shaved and beard cut off for TCPPA Charities.

Previously, in the late 2000s, at the TCPPA Holiday Party, Dave had his head and beard shaved for TCPPA Charities which raised over $13,000 which was donated to PPA Charities at Imaging USA.

Let's see if we can top this amount to see Dave without any hair and to support TCPPA Charities in their efforts. 

Donations Collected
(November 1 - December 9, 2019):

• $5,000 in total donations to shave his head.
• $6,000 in total donations to shave his head AND beard (mustache not included).

The head shaving will be held during our 35th Anniversary Party and Awards Gala on Monday, December 9th, 2019 at the Lake Elmo Inn Event Center. RSVP for the event here -
