Donate a Photo lets you share a photo a day to help raise money for a cause from one of the available options listed in the app. Options range from contributing to a program for youth at risk to providing a blanket for a baby in an NICU, and all it takes is couple of minutes of your time per day.


Streamlined process: To start raising money, all you have to do is pick a cause to support and select or take a photo to share. Once you've posted it to the app's main feed, Johnson and Johnson will donate $1 to the cause you've chosen. Each day, you can go back and post another photo to raise more money, either for the same cause or for a different one.

Cause pages: Each cause page contains detailed information about the organization or program receiving the funds. And even campaigns that have ended are still listed, so you can read about them and make a straight monetary donation of your own if you choose.


Strange sharing setup: This app allows you to link your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, so you can share your photos there, too and help spread the word about the program. But for some reason, sharing to Facebook and Twitter occurs simultaneously with your posting to the app, while the link for sharing on Instagram only appears after you've made your initial post. This isn't a terrible inconvenience, but it does seem like a strange design decision and creates an extra step for no real reason.

Bottom Line

Donate a Photo is a quick and painless way to help contribute to a cause you think is worthwhile. Its streamlined setup enables you to make a difference with very little investment of energy, and the integrated sharing features help you let your friends know what you're doing and what they can do to help.

Developer's Description

Donate a Photo, the free donation app from Johnson & Johnson takes your photos and turns them into a way to do good. For every photo you share through Donate a Photo, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to the charity of your choice. Your photos can do things like help a newborn breathe with Save the Children, get school supplies for a girl in Guatemala with Girl Up, or help a deployed service member call home with the USO. Here's how it works: 1. Choose a charity you want to help. 2. Take a picture with your mobile device (through the Donate a Photo app or choose one from your camera roll). 3. Share it (It'll go in the Donate a Photo gallery and you can post it for all your friends to see on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). 4. Johnson & Johnson gives $1 to your cause. You can donate one photo a day, every day. And when your friends see your photos in their feeds, they'll get inspired to help, too. So you can all raise more money and awareness and help your causes meet their goals even faster--and it's free. Johnson & Johnson has curated a list of trusted charitable causes, and when a cause reaches its goal, or its donation period ends, a new cause gets added. Even if a cause doesn't reach its goal, Johnson & Johnson will still give a minimum donation. You can track all the causes you've helped, see what your photos have helped do, and get notified when your causes reach their goals or when a new cause is added. It's never been easier to help the causes you care about. It's free--so get the app and get started. Donate a Photo is not intended for users under the age of 13.
