This post on making a difference in the world through your own photography is brought to you by Johnson & Johnson and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.
Think about all the photos you take on your phone. Photos of your kids, your pets, the flowers that are starting to bloom in your yard, the temperature outside, your lunch, the price of an item that you want to remember. Oh wait, that’s just me? Oh well!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the photos you took on your phone could do good for others? Well, they can! You can make a difference once a day with a photo that you take.
Random photos – all taken with my phone!
Donate a Photo – Make the World Better
In today’s age of technology and convenience it is incredibly easy to do good for others by taking a minute or two out of your day and spending nothing out of pocket. Right now is one of those times. There is a wonderful new initiative called Donate a Photo, which is an app that allows us to use our photos for good! For every shared photo through the app, J&J will donate $1* to a cause that people care about.
All donations are measured in actions, from planting trees to feeding families to providing medicine for children in need. Donating is simple: Just download the free Donate a Photo app (available in the App Store and Google Play) and register to get started, then choose a cause, upload a photo and share it on Facebook and Twitter to let your friends and followers know how they can help, too. You can share one photo a day, every day, to contribute to the causes that matter most to you.
Currently your photos can support these three charitable partners:
- Keep America Beautiful – One photo helps restore a community park.
- Save the Children – One photo helps a newborn get medicine to thrive.
- Safe Kids – One photo protects seven children from a preventable sports injury.
You can watch this video to see just how easy the Donate a Photo app is to use.
So, what do you say? Will you download the app and upload a photo?
