Helping others with Photography

The other day I was thinking about how I could use my photography to help others.  Today (January 18) while on the internet I came across a non-profit organization (Help-Portrait) that was begun in 2008 by photographer Jeremy Cowart.  The organization is growing stronger and helping people around the world.  How are they helping people?  Please read on and learn more.

Help-Portrait has a simple formulas: “By finding someone, taking their picture, and giving that photograph to them.”   You can join them by being a photographer or organizing an event.  The main event has been held each year in December since 2008 (this year’s event will be December 6, 2014).  You don’t have to wait until then to help people near you who are less fortunate and would like to own a photograph of themselves and their loved ones.  Imagine helping those people who have lost everything in a disaster, the homeless, those in recovery, the elderly, or others who would a photograph.   The next paragraph contains the web address that has all the information for you to begin helping Help-Portrait and others in your area.

The name of the organization is Help-Portrait.  Here is the link to the website:

I have joined recently, and will be helping them and others this year.  Are you interested in helping others with your photography?  Would you like to give others a great gift, a photograph, for them and their loved ones?
