While photographers play the lead role in our “Portraits for Pixels” campaign as they put their expertise, talents and equipment to work for fundraising, those amongst us who are not photographers also have a key part to play in this fun campaign.
Not sure what to do and how to help? Here are 10 easy ways to get involved in the campaign:
Support Idea 1: Tell a Photographer. Do you know any photographers? If so, tell him or her about “Portraits for Pixels”, share our campaign website with them and encourage them to register to join our growing roster of photographers holding “Portraits for Pixels” sessions.
Support Idea 2: Insider Influence. Do you work in the photography industry but are not a photographer yourself? Help us spread word-of-mouth to the photographers that you do know or offer pro bono services to help participating photographers with anything from post-production help to free portrait printing and delivery services. Contact us here.
Support Idea 3: Say “Cheese”! Check our Listings page regularly and if there is a photographer holding “Portraits for Pixels” sessions in your area, sign up to get your Christmas family portrait, your team portrait or your professional headshot done!
Support Idea 4: Forward the News. Email your friends and family to tell them about the campaign… and get them to forward the news to their friends, co-workers and classmates.
Support Idea 5: Join Us (Online). Join our Facebook campaign page for campaign updates, photographer interviews and news and inspirational quotes. And get your friends, family, co-workers and classmates to join too!
Support Idea 6: Hit the “Retweet” Button. Join both our main Twitter account (@pixelproject) and our campaign Twitter account (@portraits4pixel) and get busy hitting the retweet button every time to see a “Portaits for Pixels” promo or hashtag!
Support Idea 7: Link Love is Good! If you have a blog, cross-post the interviews, articles and campaign updates from our campaign blog… or share link on your website sidebar that hyperlinks straight to our campaign website. Get creative with embedding us in your online experience!
Support Idea 8: Wear It with Pride. Download our free virtual goodies which include blog badges, Facebook badges, Twitter avatars and computer wallpapers, then put them on your social networking profits to help raise awareness about “Portraits for Pixels”.
Support Idea 9: Volunteer, volunteer, volunteer. We are always in need of more helping hands. If you have some time to spare between 8 August and 23 September and an internet connection, sign up to help us with a variety of behind-the-scenes work for the campaign! You can sign up to volunteer here.
Support Idea 10: Give a Little. If you do not live near a “Portraits for Pixels” photographer or feel up to spreading the word for us, you might consider donating US$5.00 or more directly to the Celebrity Male Role Model Pixel Reveal campaign which is being supported by “Portraits for Pixels”.
