Rodman Ride for Kids 2010 - Alinda is riding 25 miles

Hi Everyone,

On September 25th, I’ll be riding my fifth year, 25 miles in the Rodman Ride for Kids to support the Family Nurturing Center of Massachusetts (FNC). FNC is a Boston-based non-profit with a 16 year history of providing comprehensive supports to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect.

The reason I’m riding is because I believe that all of Boston’s children deserve to grow up in nurturing, supportive families and communities. FNC provides family support programs to improve the parent and child relationship at all ages and stages of growth, build nurturing skills and knowledge of healthy child development, and connect families to each other, to their community, and to resources.

The Family Nurturing Center is best known for its evidence-based Nurturing Parenting Programs: 12-15 week programs for parents and children to attend together. FNC has spread the Nurturing Philosophy through trainings to other organizations in and around Boston and across the state, but it also offers specialized curricula, including NPs for birth & foster families, pre-natal families, and Cape Verdean families. FNC piloted Boston’s first Nurturing Fathers’ Program and continues to provide multiple parenting programs each year for fathers, even those who are incarcerated.

Another way FNC serves families is through its Neighborhood Circles of Caring in Dorchester, Allston-Brighton, and Roslindale. Working with many community partners, FNC provides Welcome Baby home visits to families with newborns, Parent-Child Playgroups (a model replicated by Boston Public School’s Countdown to Kindergarten), the Parent-Child Home Program, Nurturing Programs, Nurturing Circles Parent Support Groups, and other activities neighborhood residents desire for themselves and their children. For families that are isolated or have few other resources, FNC is often the gateway to many other valuable supports and connections. For more information, see FNC’s website: www.familynurturing.org.

By sponsoring me in the Ride for Kids, you will make a real difference in ensuring that FNC’s important work can continue. Last year, hundreds of companies and thousands of individuals donated over $7 million to the Ride for Kids on behalf of 25 agencies serving Massachusetts children. I hope you’ll join in this year, by sponsoring me at whatever level feels comfortable to you. As a Rider for Team FNC, I am committed to raising $1,000 toward FNC’s $150,000 goal.

Participation in the Ride comes at no cost to FNC or to you. 100% of your donation will go directly to the Family Nurturing Center. On top of that, the Ride for Kids has pledged to add another 10%. For every $100 that you donate, FNC will receive $110 to spend on programs that nurture healthy children and strong families!

The easiest way to support FNC and sponsor me is:
1) Go online to www.familynurturing.org
2) At the Ride logo, click on CLICK HERE, which brings you to FNC’s Ride website.
3) Click on the turquoise Sponsor Rider tab.
4) Type in my name and click Search.
5) Click on my name, and follow the instructions from there!

If you prefer to send a check, please make it out to “Ride for Kids/FNC” and mail it to: Family Nurturing Center, 200 Bowdoin St., Boston, MA 02122. Attn: Ride for Kids/Alinda Bostick

I hope you’ll join in, giving as generously as you can.

Thank you in advance for your support!

More Dobian - Class of 2011


Here is a High School student who has it all.

I met This young lady last night, yet I felt like I have known her since she was a small child. I have heard countless stories of her intelligence, talents and beauty. My best friend, Allicia is her amazing stepmom who has shared in adding to her inner light for years..... Well look at her shine - an awesome teen with the world at her fingertips.

I am so excited to have been a part of her Senior experience in front of the camera.

Canvas on Demand

Hey Pro photographers,

Looking for an excellent Canvas company. This is the one! Canvas on Demand http://www.canvasondemand.com/

I joined them months ago and received some beautiful samples for my studio at a discounted rate.

I just ordered one for a client, the sizing was not just right and my image was going to get cropped by default. Well they have great customer/support services. I received an email detailing the issue and that they automatically customized my order to fit my image exactly with no additional charge.

I am definitely going to continue ordering from Canvas on Demand. You should check them out.

My First Studio - Self Portrait


I have been wearing my hair braided for a couple of months now. I get them redone about every two weeks to a month, depending on the style.

Well, I just took them out and decided to take some self portraits.

This was fun... I might get addicted to doing this. LOL

Family Session - Superstar



This family was so much fun to photograph.
They were full of energy and of course beautiful.
The image with the mom was my photographer's favorite of the day.
She allowed me to be creative and create a sun flare effect,
by placing a strobe light at about 10:00 in position to where she was sitting.

I absolutely love the results.
Thanks Joy
