Help-Portrait is Today!
Help-Portrait is a non-profit organization (currently working to obtain 501(c)(3)* status) with a simple mission: connect with people in need through photography. Help-Portrait is also a movement of photographers around the globe, who are using their time, equipment and expertise to give back to those who are less fortunate this holiday season. On December 12, the Help-Portrait movement will officially kick off with 700 photographers in 60 countries donating one day to reach out to as many people as possible. The event and it’s goal can best be understood by watching this YouTube Video about the Help-Portrait Nashville 2009 Test Event:
Kodak is supporting Help-Portrait in Nashville, LA and NYC with on-site Picture Kiosk assistance. Kiosk will allow the photographers to supply photos for those in need (with 4x6 and 5x7 photos, for example) in Nashville, LA and NY.
Help-Portrait was founded in Nashville by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart. This will be the third Help-Portrait event today featuring the founders' hometown as a focal point. This event has received much media attention and will be attended by some of the major media outlets.
Please lend your support...tweet, blog and support Help-Portrait today and encourage people to Smile. Print. And Share at KODAK Picture Kiosks everywhere, today!
Disclosure: I did not receive any compensation for this post, I simply thought it was a nice idea to give photographers a chance to help out community members in need. You might also want to check out Kodak and TweetPhoto's 30 Days of Giveaways all this month for your chance to win cool prizes including cameras and digital frames, although no one told me to say that, either.
