Last year in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy that ravaged the Northeast U.S., the Help-Portrait community rallied to help victims.

With donations that came in, 78 photographers and 172 volunteers were able to provide free portraits for 278 different families who were affected across four events in New Jersey and New York. Each family received new hard drives where they will be able to store their new photographs. They also received a day of love, care and hope because of the generosity of others.

Here is a new documentary telling that story.

As we look toward this 5th anniversary of Help-Portrait on Dec. 7, we would love to invite you to serve with us. You can help by giving, getting involved in future Help-Portrait events by signing up on our community site, or spreading the word via social media or wearing HP apparel.
