How to Use Photography to Help in Natural Disasters — Operation Photo Rescue

UPDATE 5/22: Due to an overwhelming response, Operation Photo Rescue has closed their volunteer registration. Check back later! We’ll update when it opens again.

You’ve run through this fire drill a million times over: first, you grab the family cat, then your family photos.

Sadly, it doesn’t always work out that way. While many are grateful to survive a natural disaster, they’re still left devastated from the loss of everything they own.

The worst of it might just be the loss of irreplacable family photos.

Operation Photo Rescue is a league of photographers and graphic designers who set out to help survivors get their treasured memories back.

OPR’s first mission was Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Since then, they’ve restored 9,000+ photos in other disasters like Hurricane Sandy.

If you’re itching to help, OPR’s always looking for skilled photo restorers and fundraising.

You can help folks get back photos from their wedding day, that regal portrait of their great of grandpa, and snapshots of their daughter’s first birthday.

Won’t that feel awesome?
