#DonateAPhoto for Sight for Kids!

Helping protect a child’s sight is as easy as snapping a photo. Starting today, October 1, for every photo you donate through Johnson & Johnson’s Donate a Photo app*, they  will donate $1 to the Lions Clubs International Foundation and Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Sight for Kids program (up to $30,000).

Each and every photo you “donate” will help Lions and Johnson & Johnson Vision Care provide a vision screening and eye exam. The Sight for Kids program’s mission is to remove barriers to eye care for children in underserved areas across Asia – including providing eye glasses and treatment.

All you have to do is download the free mobile app on your iPhone, iPad or Android device and start taking pictures!

How to Get Started

 1. You can download the FREE Donate a Photo app for your Apple or Android device.
2. Follow the in-app steps to set up your account and profile. Switch on your Facebook and Twitter accounts within the app to automatically share with all your friends and followers!
3. Choose your cause: To help protect a child’s sight with Sight for Kids.
4. Then, take a picture, or choose a photo to share from your device’s library or album.
5. If you share your photo, you help a child, and inspire others to help our Sight for Kids program!

Photo Guidelines

  • Users can donate up to one photo a day, every day, to the Sight for Kids cause through February 28, 2014.
  • Any appropriate snap shot helps, but Lions are hoping to share photos of faces or eyes to raise awareness about the importance of accessible eye care and eye exams.
  • Are you planning a project or event for Sharing the Vision month and World Sight Day? Feel free to share your photos of your Lions club project through the Donate a Photo app!
  • Be sure to tag photos with the hashtag #lionsclub on Facebook and Twitter. We will  share select photos through the Lions Clubs International official Facebook and Twitter pages.

Since 2002, LCIF and JJVC have worked together to correct the vision of millions of children throughout Asia with the Sight for Kids program. During World Sight Day and the October Sharing the Vision service campaign, Lions and Johnson & Johnson are ensuring their social snapshots are serving, too!

Consider Donating a Photo for Sight for Kids to help Lions protect a child’s sight today!

*The Donate a Photo app is available in the United States only. No matter where you live, be sure to get the word out about Lions Sight for Kids program and the importance of eye exams for our children. Photos shared are not used for commercial purposes.

Disclosure: You can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. For every photo donated to Sight for Kids, Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. will donate $1 to that cause. You can donate photos to Sight for Kids until February 28, 2014 or until it reaches its goal of $30,000, whichever comes first. Sight for Kids will receive a minimum of $15,000.

  1. Photos must be donated through the app, so they have to be on your phone. You can certainly upload photos from your computer onto your smart phone and then donate them through the app that way!

  2. May I ask if the pictures will be used by Lions International only, or elsewhere, and how?

    We in Toronto, Canada would like to participate, but some of us don’t have access to the http://www.donateaphoto.com/ on the Android. Can pictures be submitted directly through this site, rather then cell phones?

    Has any one else reported this application problem with their cell phones in any other parts of the world?

    Many thanks.

    • The Donate a Photo app is only available in the U.S. However, we encourage Lions around the world to participate in promoting and supporting Sight for Kids by taking photos of eyes and faces, and sharing them on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtags #eyepledge and #lionsclub. Thank you!

      • But how will the photos be used? Will they be used in advertising? Will we give up the copyright?
