Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. has come up with a fun and creative way to give back with the Donate a Photo app. The free app allows us to make a difference by raising money and awareness for different causes by the simple act of taking and sharing a photo. If you’re anything like me, you’re already sharing pictures through social sharing sites like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Why not download the free Donate a Photo app and help someone in need when you share?
I was thrilled when asked to participate in this sponsored opportunity with The Motherhood for Johnson & Johnson. The app launched back in April of this year, and I really wish I had learned of it sooner. Each day my family looks forward to snapping a Selfless Selfie and then choosing which charity will receive a $1 donation from Johnson & Johnson. For every photo shared through Donate a Photo app, Johnson & Johnson will donate one dollar to one of its non-profit partners.
Saturday we wen’t the the movie theater and I snapped this Selfless Selfie of myself and my niece Maddie in front of “The Wolverine” movie poster. Maddie chose to help a girl in Liberia go back to school for this particular donation. All funds donated through the DAP Girl Up cause help provide outreach efforts to girls, parents and community leaders, provide literacy, numeracy and livelihood training to out of school girls, and helps establish local PTAs to champion girls’ education in Liberia. These efforts help girls return to and stay in school, often after years of absence.
The Selfless Selfie picture above, taken after tumbling class on Sunday, helped protect a child from bullying through the PFLAG cause. The funds donated go to provide materials (brochures, flyers etc.) for anti-bullying sessions. These sessions reach students, teachers and school leaders with messages about cultivating respect and keeping schools safe for all.
When you share a Selfless Selfie through the app you get to choose from a list of rotating list of non-profit partners who will receive the donation. The Girl Up and PFLAG causes, along with Safe Kids which helps a child in Mexico get to school safely, were all recently added to the list of rotating partners. When a cause reaches its goal, another takes its place. The causes that have reached their goal still stay in the app, so that users can continue to learn more about the organizations and see the photos that helped support them.
Donating is simple! Just visit donateaphoto.com to find out how to download the free Donate a Photo app to your iOS or Android device, and register to get started. Then choose a cause, upload a photo and share it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to show the actions and impact to friends and followers and encourage them to get involved in helping the causes.
Please note: 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.
