Help-Portrait is needing at least 2 volunteers to help us transfer content and imagery to the brand new Help-Portrait website. Applicants must be well experienced in WordPress and Photoshop. This project is expected to take 4-6 weeks as we transfer content, imagery and beta test. This will not require full-time attention.

If you are interested, you can apply by sending your name, contact info and portfolio of work to our executive director, Kyle Chowning, kyle(at)help-portrait.com.

Credit will be given on the website to the generous volunteers who help us get this done.

We’re open to individuals and/or companies to help us. This work is volunteer based.

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.

EVENT REPORTING

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.

STORIES

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 stories@help-portrait.com and don’t forget to include a picture. Please let us know if we’re not allowed to share the story publicly.

2014 DATE ANNOUNCED

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

    They made use of the exact same innovative science to create Adiphene as they did Phen375, and this wound up developing a fantastically safe, unbelievably effective dietary fat burning supplement that other business envy. So, I know you are going to ask in desperation, is there any diet pill that works fast and yet doesn't need any prescription to buy it. The thermogenic and stimulants from Adiphene will help your body to burn the energy which are consumed throughout meals.

    We're a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your site offered us with valuable information to work on. You've done an impressive job and our whole community will be thankful to you.

These are the moments when heaven comes to earth:

When a 46 year old beautiful woman bawls her eyes out because she has finally gotten her very first picture with Santa.

When photographers set aside competition and serve together for the day.

When a twenty (something)-year-old in a recovery program asks to set his picture on the sign-in desk, stands back with a huge smile, and says, “I’m just picturing it. I’m picturing when I have a job, and I’m working in an office. I will have this picture sitting there. Can’t you see it? This is where I’m heading.”

When the Chick-fil-a cow shows up and makes everyone’s day.

When someone getting their picture says they’ve always wanted to be a professional photographer and asked if they could come next year, and the photographer hands his camera to her and says, “how about now?”

When crazy talented musicians serenade new friends.

When kids belly laugh as they play with their new toys who were given to them by other kids.

When hot coffee and a meal are offered by a friendly face and the rest of the hospitality/food team to those who have been riding in a freezing cold bus this morning.

When a returning guest from last year recognizes a volunteer, calls her by name, greets her with a huge hug and insists they get a picture taken together and printed before they leave.

When volunteers give hours upon hours of long nights behind the scenes to make these moments possible for people all over the world who will never know their name.

This is Help-Portrait.

Honored to have shared this with some of my favorite people in the world today. Thank you for every hug, encouraging word, listening ear, picture, makeover, print, and action you gave today to make these and many more moments happen.

    My second tour as "Santa." And it continues to warm my heart! Memorable moment... A bus driver comes up talking on his phone. Then "Facetimes" the conversation with me back to his wife, who has never seen Santa... In the Middle East!! Wow!!

We can’t tell you how excited we are to see Help-Portrait roll around, because this is our 5th year! This is a huge milestone for our community, which spans 67 countries now!

We know you’ve been planning, fundraising and organizing in anticipation for Dec. 7. Thank you for your level of dedication, teamwork and compassion. Once the doors swing open, hearts will as well. We can’t wait to hear the stories that come from these events in just a little more than a week.

As Help-Portrait 2013 begins in just a few short days, we wanted to give you a few reminders.

EVENT REPORTING

Most importantly, don’t forget to track and report your numbers. We’re looking for the number of photographers, volunteers and portraits given. At the end of the event, head over to http://help-portrait.com/report/ and fill in the details. This allows us to share the global impact of Help-Portrait with the public, media and potential sponsors. This helps us engage more photographers so that next year, we can do even more.

MEDIA LOVE

    • We’d love to get #HelpPortrait to trend globally on Twitter Saturday so be sure to use that hashtag.
    • We’ve seen that many of you have already gotten wonderful media coverage in your local papers and from local news stations. We’d love to see and keep a record of these links. Send us the details using this form Help-Portrait Press so we can share it with community.
    • OKDOTHIS, a new photo- and idea-sharing app from HP founder Jeremy Cowart, is going to be a great way to share Help-Portrait. There’s already a slew of photo ideas and prompts, called “DOs,” on the @helpportrait profile page for behind the scenes pictures at our events, how to take better pictures, ways to interact with the subjects — and more are being added daily. The goal is to create community of ideas through the DOs that OKDOTHIS provides. Take and share the photos you create, and post your own ideas for DOs! It’s easy, fun, idea-inspiring and adds a new level of social media sharing for our events this year.
    • Create a CNN iReport for your Help-Portrait location! We’ve got a step-by-step tutorial on our blog. At your local event, capture a compelling brief video or photo(s) or so of what’s happening. Give an overview of your event and interview an organizer or participant about what the day has meant to them (don’t forget to get release forms signed).

SHARING PHOTOS

Lastly, we can’t wait to see your photos this year. Whether you upload on your personal blog, local Help-Portrait site, Facebook, Flickr or other means, please make sure to include the Help-Portrait watermark, get the proper release forms signed, and include “Help_Portrait” in the file titles so we can see the photos when doing a Google Image Search.

We’re anticipating great things this year. Let’s go!

-Kyle & the Help-Portrait team
