Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Johnson and Johnson and I was compensated for my time in creating this post.
If you’re on Social Media then I am almost positive you have either seen a selfie or have taken a selfie photo and shared it. They can be fun and entertaining but did you know that they could MAKE A DIFFERNCE! That’s right you could be helping the non profit organization of your choice from our list just by posting a photo of yourself. If you have been reading my blog you know that helping others is a big deal to me. You’ve also probably seen some crazy selfies of me posted on Facebook. This is just another way of helping without taking any money from your wallet. It literally takes to seconds. Johnson and Johnson will donate $1 for every “ Selfless Selfies ” you take. (1 photo a day)
Donating is simple:
Just download the FREE Donate a Photo app and register to get started, then choose a cause, upload a selfie (it would be especially great to include your teens/tweens in the outreach since the benefiting causes may be of interest to them!) and share it on Facebook and Twitter (and soon, Instagram!) to let 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. Be sure and use the hashtag #SelflessSelfie and #CQ.
- “Selfless Selfies,” supports the following charities :
- PFLAG – One photo helps protect a child from bullying.
- Girl Up – One photo helps a girl in Liberia go back to school.
- Safe Kids Mexico – One photo helps a child in Mexico get to school safely.
While all donations must be made through a mobile device, the experience (including a photo gallery, progress achieved for each non-profit partner, etc.) is accessible to anyone, on any device, from mobile phones to tablets to desktop computers.
When a cause reaches its goal, another takes its place; the causes that have reached their goal stay in the app, so users can continue to learn more about the organizations and see the photos that helped support them.
PFLAG: All funds donated through the DAP PFLAG cause 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.
Girl Up: 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.
Safe Kids: The Safe Kids Safe Roads initiative aims to teach children and parents about bike helmet and car seat safety. The program achieves these goals both through in-school sessions, as well as through awareness efforts via online promotions and social media.
