One of the keys to creating the Help-Portrait story are the numbers that we have the privilege of reporting to the world.

After three years, the Help-Portrait community of 25,000+ photographers, in 56 countries, at over 700 events, have given away nearly 170,000 portraits to those who are less fortunate. Amazing huh!

These stats help us gain the interest of CNN, ABC, Today Show, plus over 100 more. This coverage helps us engage more photographers so that next year, we can do even more.

So this year, we need your help again.

During your event, be sure that you track the following:

  • Photographers
  • Volunteers
  • Portraits given to people and/or families (can be more than one per person/family)

At the end of the event, head over to and fill in the details.

That’s it.

Your contribution will help us tell an amazing story. We’re proud to have you as a part of it.

Don’t forget!

    Entendo a fotografia como uma arte que é capaz de reproduzir e perpetuar a criação de Deus, captando momentos e lances exclusivos nas pessoas e na natureza.

    I did this last year but did not report any details. Gave 100 portraits to those who would not have had one. I will do it again this year. It is the "GIFT" I give to myself.

    I think this response from a Help_portrait recipient in Indianapolis, IN on 12/3/11 says it all. Thank you Help Portrait for allowing us to share our talents. I am just a lucky participant in this event. Please do not associate my name with this posting. "Thank you Thank you Thank you... I and so happy with these . I am going through a great transition in life. Starting over as a single woman after 13 years. sometimes your self -esteem is low and God has to work through diffresnt avenues to help you realize how beautiful you are as He sees you. I am getting there with His help and you have just helped Him in a wonderful way. Forgive any misspellings I am trying to type between tears. Teaching a charm and etiquette class about self esteem based on Psalms 139:14 and helping the girls believe in the word and themselves is going to be even greater and easier because I truly see what God has been telling me about me. thank you again and keep using your gift as led by God.. We are to touch ives as believers by our life and our gifts and you have truly touched mine. I will keep you in my prayers for a very Prosperous Year in the Lord... May God Bless you" Please do not use my identity in this posting.
