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.
I found a wonderful way to help charities worldwide by simply sharing a photo, which is something each of us does on a regular basis anyway.
For every photo uploaded and shared through Donate a Photo, Johnson & Johnson will donate one dollar to one of its non-profit partners***. Together you and Johnson & Johnson can support a new cause every day.
Presently, the Donate a Photo app (which is FREE and available for the iOS and Andriod platforms) has three charitable partners to choose from:
Safe Kids: One photo helps protect a child from a sports injury
Keep America Beautiful: One photo helps restore a public park
Save the Children: One photo helps a newborn get medicine to thrive.
When a cause reaches its goal, another takes its place; the causes that have reached their goal will still appear in the app, so users can continue to learn more about the organizations and see the photos that helped support them.
Donating is simple: Just visit healthyessentials.com/our-caring to download the free Donate a Photo app and register to get started, then choose a cause, upload a photo and share it on Facebook and Twitter to show the actions and impact to friends and followers and encourage them to get involved in helping the causes, too.
Here is an excellent video that visually explains how to use the Donate a Photo app and how simple it is to use.
While all donations must be made through a mobile device, the experience (including a photo gallery and progress achieved for each charity) will be accessible to anyone, on any device, from mobile phones to tablets to desktop computers.
