Imagine being able to take a photo that makes an impact! As a part of my commitment this year to bring you ways you can give back, here is something that I came across that I think you will find easy to do. Most of us enjoy sharing our photos on social media. Take that love and put it to good use.
Johnson & Johnson has a free mobile app, Donate a Photo, that you NEED to download on your mobile device. For every photo you share through this free app, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to a cause you select from their list. There are 8 categories from which to choose your cause.
Women’s and Children’s Health
Global Disease Challenges
Education and Equality
It is seriously just that simple!

For my first share on this app, I chose to donate a photo to help a survivor of the Tennessee Wildfires. My family and I visit Tennessee often, and we were saddened to hear the destruction that occurred in our beautiful Great Smoky Mountains.
“Thousands of residents were forced to flee their homes near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, as wildfires burned homes and businesses to the ground. The fires have killed 14 people, injured more than 100 and damaged or destroyed 1,700 homes. Americares is delivering medicine and relief supplies to Tennessee for families displaced by the wildfires, many of whom had to evacuate quickly with no time to pack medicines and other necessities. The emergency team is working with partner organizations in Sevier County surrounding areas to provide respiratory medication, insulin, tetanus vaccines, hygiene kits and first aid supplies for survivors. The organization has a long history of responding to emergencies in the U.S. including Hurricane Katrina, the Joplin tornado, Hurricane Sandy, and the 2013 Oklahoma tornadoes.”
The cool thing is you get ONE photo a day 365 days a year! What an easy way to give back! So what photo are you going to share?
