Johnson & Johnson, with an exclusive partnership at Walmart, just launched a new back to school campaign with United Way to support students through mentoring and tutoring, in order to ultimately improve their school grades and attendance. Donate a Photo is a free app (available on Android and iOS devices) from Johnson & Johnson that turns users’ photos into a way to do good. For every photo uploaded to United Way through the Donate a Photo app, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to United Way education programs.
Getting involved is easy:
People can donate one photo each day. The app also lets you see and share the impact of each uploaded photo. Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to United Way for each photo donated until October 14, 2014 or until $50,000 is raised. United Way will receive a minimum of $30,000.
Every year, more than one million students drop out of high school. As a result, fewer young Americans are likely to earn a diploma than their parents— a distinction not shared by any other industrialized country. That’s why United Way is working to ensure that children and youth are: 1) ready for school, starting with the skills they need to succeed; 2) reading on track by fourth grade; 3) transitioning successfully to and from middle school; 4) graduating high school on time and 5) are either working, pursuing advanced education, or are in training by 21.
