Generosity Goes a Long Way

Published on May 10, 2023

I am thrilled to share with you the story of one of our franchise owners who has truly captured the hearts of her community. Meet Heather Sams, our Spoiled Rotten Photography Franchise Owner in Colorado Springs, CO.


Heather, an US Army veteran, has a heart for kids of all ages, and it shows in the way she gives back to her community. Each year, Heather conducts a portrait fundraiser event for her local high school’s JROTC program.  This year she donated $9,556, and over the last six years, Heather has given an impressive total of $35,546. 

The JROTC has used this money in various ways, but one of the most impactful ways is sponsoring teens to go on field trips to competitions that they would not be able to afford otherwise. Heather’s donations have enabled many teenagers to go on enrichment trips that have truly transformed their lives.

Imagine being a teenager who dreams of participating in a JROTC competition but cannot afford to attend due to financial constraints. The opportunity to participate in an activity that they are passionate about and see others from different parts of the country doing the same is something that they will never forget.

Thanks to Heather’s generous donations, the JROTC has been able to send many teenagers on such trips, and their lives have been forever changed. They return home feeling motivated, energized, and with a new perspective on life.

Heather’s impact on her community through her photography franchise is truly remarkable. Her selfless acts have enabled teenagers to experience life-changing opportunities that they would not have had otherwise. She has inspired others to give back to their community and to make a difference in the lives of those around them.

Generosity goes a long way! We are so proud to have Heather as part of our franchise family, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact she continues to have on her community.
