"Selfless Selfie" Donate a Photo Initiative with Johnson & Johnson! Get the Free App, Donate to a Cause & Make a Difference!

Do you enjoy taking selfies?  What if I told you that you could make a difference in the life of a child simply by sharing one (or more) of your selfies, would you take the time?  By take a "selfless selfie" (pictures you take of yourself), you can help your favorite nonprofits. You’ll raise money and awareness, and help your cause meet their goals.
For every "Selfless Selfie" photo you share, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to the cause you want to help - a cause that does things like fix up a public park, get medicine for an infant, or help kids play sports safely. You choose the cause you want to help, Johnson & Johnson makes it happen.

On July 28th, the Donate a Photo campaign added three non-profit partners to its rotating list of causes: 
  • PFLAG: One photo helps protect a child from bullying
  • Girl Up: One photo helps a girl in Liberia go back to school
  • Safe Kids: One photo helps a child in Mexico get to school safely
The Causes: 

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. 
One cool thing about this initiative is that  once 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.
Donating and  making a difference is simple: Just visit donateaphoto.com to find out how 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, Twitter and Instagram to show the actions and impact to friends and followers and encourage them to get involved in helping the causes, too! 

You can donate one photo a day, every day. With a photo a day, you’ll make a difference by raising money and awareness for causes you care about. Share with your friends and you’ll help your causes meet their goals faster!

I would donate a picture to help send a girl in Liberia back to school. An education can really help to empower her and make a huge difference for her.

I would choose the One photo helps protect a child from bullying campaign. Even though schools have a zero tolerance for bullying, I think they have a difficult time implementing it. I also think that social media has made it even more prevalent.

I would choose Keep America Beautiful. I always remember seeing their commercial on tv when I was a kid and how it made an impression on me.
