Dear Help-Portrait Community,

We did it!

The Annual Help-Portrait day has come and gone. What a day it was! The pictures, stories and reports are pouring in. It’s so fun to see what you all did in recent days, weeks, and for some of you, months.

Due to weather and other circumstances, we know some of you have event dates that are still coming up. Don’t worry, we’re here to root you on and will be awaiting the pictures, stories and counts to add to the global story.


If you lead a group and have completed your event, be sure to submit you stats as soon as you can. We’re updating our global impact story regularly and posting them on Twitter, Facebook and OKDOTHIS.


If you’re anything like me, you’re basking in the stories and moments you experienced. Please take a moment and share those with us. We’d love to hear about the ones that were especially touching to you. Send them to and don’t forget to include a picture. Please let us know if we’re not allowed to share the story publicly.


Mark your calendars because the next International Help-Portrait day is scheduled for Saturday, 06 December 2014.

Finally, Help-Portrait 2013 is far from over. There are many more stories to be told, pictures to see and reports to be included. We can’t wait to see what you all did!

Talk to you soon,

— Kyle Chowning
Executive Director
