Raise money for charity with your snaps
- Tue, 3 Jul 2012
Have you got lots of images on your smartphone, hardrive or computer doing nothing? What better way to put them to good use than submitting them to Photofoundation - a social enterprise and image bank that enables people to donate their photos to raise money for charity.
By donating your images via smartphone, computer, tablet or alternatively linking directly to Flickr, charities get free access to the image for their own promotional use as well as a percentage of profits from commercial sales at the end of each year.
All donated images are moderated before they're added to the collection and online users are given the option to create their own accounts, view their images and view how much their donations could raise for good causes.
Buyers can browse collections or search by keywords or location. All images are cleared and available in rights-managed and royalty-free licenses - at prices to suit all budgets.
Javier García, Managing Director of Miura and founder of Photofoundation says,
"We wanted to create a new way of giving for millions of people who love taking pictures. At a time when billions of photos are posted on Flicker and Instagram every day, we wanted to create a marketplace where users can donate images to support a good cause. The aim is to build community of donors who volunteer their pictures regularly and eventually also help us do further good by donating their time to moderate and tag the collections."
