I probably take several thousand photos every year; most of the space on my phone, tablet, and computer is occupied with photos. I enjoy taking photos of Gabe a lot, but I like photographing just about anything. I feel like most are wasted, because I can’t share all of them on social media. I’ve found a better way to share a few of my favorites using the Donate a Photo app created by Johnson & Johnson; I get to share my photos with family and friends, and I can help earn donations for some carefully curated causes.
Did you know that the holiday season is one of the busiest times for charitable giving/acts? What if there was a way that you could give throughout the year? The Donate a Photo app developed by Johnson & Johnson. It allows you to “donate” photos worth up to $365 per year to several major causes/organizations.
Here are a few from the app:
I have donated over 50 photos since I downloaded the app and I hope to donate many more during the upcoming year; my goal is 365 photos or a photo a day.
Donating a photo using the Donate a Photo app is very simple. You can either take a photo while you’re using the app or access your photo library on your phone/tablet. I generally scroll through to see if any new causes/charities have been added before making my selection. You can choose to share your donation on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
You can also review all of your previously donated photos and the causes which you donated them to.
The Donate a Photo app was created in 2013 by Johnson & Johnson. Close to 1.75 million photos have been donated since the app was launched with close to 180,000 people contributing. You can donate up to one photo per day, each and every day. The simple act of donating a photo not only garners a donation for the chose cause but can help raise awareness for the cause when the photo is shared on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram.
The Tennessee wildfires have been devastating to our southern “neighbors”. Although the loss pales in comparison, my husband’s family owned a timeshare at Westgate Resort which nearly completely destroyed by the fires in Gatlinburg, TN. Many of the locals lost their permanent homes and I’ve been donating my most recent photos to the victims of the Tennessee wildfires.
If you want to do more than donating a photo, you could also consider making an order from the Save the Children “Gifts of Joy” catalogue. Johnson & Johnson is a long time partner of Save the Children, and they’re currently matching donations up to $450,000.
In a few days, we’ll begin a new year; why not consider taking a 365 Days of Giving Donate a Photo challenge? It would only take a few seconds each day, once you’ve downloaded the Donate a Photo app. You can help donate up to $365 total over the course of a year, which is a much easier New Year’s Resolution to meet.
Had you ever heard of the Donate a Photo app before today? I hope you’ll download it and consider donating a photo to a worthy cause.
*Johnson & Johnson has curated a list of trusted causes, and you can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. Each cause will appear in the app until it reaches its goal, or the donation period ends. If the goal isn’t reached, the cause will still get a minimum donation.
