Selfless Selfies #Sponsored #Giveaway
My father-in-law is the king of selfies. His Facebook feed is full of selfies from him in front of all kinds of tourist attractions and restaurants. My favorite selfies of him are those that show 5 or 6 family members in the background who would have been happy to take a picture of him.
I think selfies are an interesting aspect of our privileged society. Back in the early days of cameras, photography was expensive and film was rarely wasted on something so frivolous as a self portrait.
What if we could use these mobile self portraits to help a little girl in Liberia stay in school, or a child in Mexico get to school safely?
Johnson & Johnson developed the Donate a Photo (DAP) app for both iOS and Android devices to do just this. . .give back. The Donate a Photo (DAP) app, which launched in April 2013, allows consumers to make a difference by raising money and awareness for causes that they care about through one simple act – taking a photo.
The Donate a Photo app is a simple way to take something many of us do daily (taking photos) and turn it into something good.
The latest “Selfless Selfie” campaign by Johnson and Johnson is a fun way to help some of the causes on the Donate a Photo app. You can follow Donate a Photo on Twitter @donateaphoto. The designated hashtags are #JNJ #SelflessSelfie and you may use the optional hashtag #Donateaphoto
For each photo donated Johnson & Johnson will donate a dollar to one of its non-profit partners, chosen by the user. The non-profits rotate in as other causes reach their goals. 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.
Donors may donate one photo a day, every day.
The impact of your photo travels with your photos, an action band showing the cause that you supported travels with the picture.
Johnson & Johnson developed this program to work alongside their HEALTHY ESSENTIALS™ coupon program. This quarterly coupon newspaper insert allows families to stock up on the products that they depend on and use every day.
Johnson & Johnson is offering one of my beautiful readers a gift pack of approximately $60 worth of J&J HEALTHY ESSENTIALS™ products which may include:
o CLEAN & CLEAR
Simply enter using the form below!
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.
