Oh, Those Selfless Selfies!
Social Media is an explosion of Selfies (photographs you take of yourself). I bet you have at least one, somewhere on your phone or camera that you took of YOU!
Selfies Make a Difference in a Child’s Life!
Did you know that picture could make a difference in the life of a child? Simply by sharing one–or many–of your selfies you can help your favorite non-profit organization. You can raise money, bring awareness and help your cause meet their goals.
Donate a Photo and YOUR Selfies Help Raise Money
Donate a Photo is a free app that allows consumers to give back to causes they care about by taking an action they do every day and turning it into a way to do good!
There is an ever-growing list of non-profit partners, three new ones were added on July 28th to the Donate a Photo campaign:
- 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
I love this Selfless Selfie of me sandwiched between two of my favorite fellow! Those are my older boys (circa 2008)! Aren’t they handsome!?
Through the “Selfless Selfie” campaign, Johnson & Johnson encourages users to donate their “selfies” via the DAP app, sharing their donated photos with friends and followers on their social networks to inspire them to do the same.

The Selfless Selfie Causes:
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.
Donate by Sharing Your Selfless Selfie:

You can see and share the impact of your photos; an “action band” telling you what the photo did (examples include helping a girl in Liberia go back to school and helping a child in Mexico get to school safely) travels when you share your photos out via your social networks.
You can donate one Selfless Selfies EVERYDAY!
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!
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.
