First, welcome to the 505 new members that have joined within the past 10 days. We’re honored that you’re a part of our community and the international movement of Help-Portrait.


Leaders—I need your help.

We’ve been using this community site for the past two years of Help-Portrait and we’re running into a problem: the groups are out of date and inconsistently titled, making it difficult for new members to find groups and get plugged in. Here’s where you come in:

1. Please update the title of your group to the following format: City, State/Providence, Country – 2011

Here are the instructions on how to make that change:

  • Go to group home page
  • > Options
  • > Edit Group
  • Make change to group name
  • > Save

If the group you are using no longer has an active owner or admin, please email us at and send us a link to your group along with the name of the new leader. We will make that change for you.

2. If you are leading a group, we need to hear from you TODAY!

Please take a moment to fill out this form so we can contact you for potential local press opportunities, donation processes, and other miscellaneous needs.

Finally, we realize that many of you aren’t using the community site as your group gathering place. In the best interest of new members, please be sure your group is registered on the community site so that new members can easily find you.

Thanks again for all that you are doing to help make this years Help-Portrait the best yet.
