There’s a reason it’s called the most wonderful time of the year. The focus on giving and spending time with the friends and family we love truly provides a wonderful opportunity to think about all that we’re thankful for and how we may help those who are less fortunate. The challenge is often finding the right opportunities to give back and really feel like you’re making a difference.
Johnson & Johnson is proud to offer two opportunities for you to seamlessly give back this holiday season. Even better, both opportunities make your holiday giving go further, because we’ll be giving right along side of you:
Turn your holiday photos into a donation.
You’ll already be taking photos of the memories you’re making this season, so why not upload them to Johnson & Johnson’s free Donate A Photo app and allow your photos to help a deployed military member virtually connect with their family? For every image uploaded through Donate A Photo, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to USO.* That $1 is the equivalent of 30 minutes of a phone or video call. You have the ability to donate one photo per day, so document your holiday season, upload your family favorites to the Donate a Photo app, and give back to the men and women who have given so much for us.
Allow your gifts to bring joy to children around the world.
There’s always someone on your holiday gift list that is harder to shop for than others. Instead of spending precious time agonizing over what to give this holiday season, consider purchasing your gifts through Save the Children’s Gift of Joy catalog. Every purchase made through the catalog provides joy and lasting change to a child in need, and Johnson & Johnson will match all donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $200,000. You have the option of purchasing an item like a tie, scarf or bracelet that benefits Save the Children’s Global Action Fund, or you can choose to give items like a soccer ball, newborn care package or child immunization kit in honor of your recipient. Gifts are available from $1 to $1,000, so no matter your budget, you can find a truly meaningful gift for anyone on your list.
It’s easy to get caught up in the rush of the holidays, weighed down by the sheer number of items on your to-do list. Johnson & Johnson’s Donate A Photo program and partnership with Save the Children allow you to make the most of your time and energy this season and find even more meaning in the activities that will fill your time in the coming weeks. Whatever your reason for celebrating, we’d like to help spread your holiday spirit and genuinely make a difference in the lives of deserving individuals across the globe.

*Johnson & Johnson has curated a list of trusted causes, and you can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. Each cause will appear in the app until it reaches its goal, or the donation period ends. If the goal isn’t reached, the cause will still get a minimum donation.
