2011 Stats

The 2011 stats are in. Without further ado…

  • 56 countries
  • 67,927 portraits given
  • 4,984 photographers
  • 8,793 volunteers

If you haven’t submitted your stats yet, don’t worry, there’s still time. We’ll update this page as new stats roll in. But remember, it must be for the 2011 calendar year. We’ll be posting a 2012 submission form very soon.

Since the launch of Help-Portrait in 2009, you, the community, have now given away over 169,500 portraits to just as many people. Wow. To think back to August 2009 where we sat and talked about how cool it would be if this got out beyond Nashville, Tennessee. Fast forward to today and we’re in awe. All we can say is thank you for believing in this vision. Without you, Help-Portrait is just an idea. With you, it’s a movement that’s bringing smiles, hope and encouragement to tens of thousands of people ALL ACROSS THE WORLD!

So, we thank you for not just believing, but doing. 169,523 people thank you too.

—Jeremy and the Help-Portrait team

    AWESOME! I’m so glad I got involved. It was very rewarding to see everyone’s faces lit up when seeing their pictures for the first time! So humbling.

    I love that my contributions with Help Portrait don’t go to some vague administrative costs and instead go directly to the people I intended to serve. I started in 2009 and will continue.
