Snap a photo to help mentor a student

We’re thrilled to partner with our friends at Johnson & Johnson on the Donate a Photo project, a free app that enables you to change the lives of people around the world—just by uploading a photo!

Through Donate a Photo, Johnson & Johnson* connects you to worthy causes that put more people on the path to success —in school, work and life. People like India Johnson, who went from earning C's and D's to earning A's and B's after enrolling in Achievers for Life, a mentoring initiative led by United Way of Northeast Florida.

With money raised through Donate a Photo, United Way will fund more early literacy initiatives to help youth like India achieve their full potential. Getting involved is easy. Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to United Way for each photo uploaded until October 31st, or until $40,000 is raised. United Way will receive a minimum donation of $20,000 regardless.

What you can do:

  1. Go to your phone’s app store and search “Donate a Photo” to download for iPhone or Android and follow the easy in-app steps to set up an account and profile.
  2. Choose United Way’s cause: “One photo helps a student succeed in school!”
  3. Upload a photo (either from your camera or take a photo or selfie on the spot).
  4. Share your photo to the Donate a Photo gallery. You can also share to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to inspire your family and friends to join you and donate a photo as well.

Downloading the app just takes a minute and uploading a photo just takes a second. So download the Donate a Photo app today and help us continue to empower kids to achieve a brighter future.

*Disclosure:

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.
