We're 5 days away from the official Help-Portrait day. To-date, over 7000 of you have signed up to participate at over 600 locations in 58 countries; and these are just the people we know about. How fun is this. All we can say is, wow!
As you prepare for the weekend ahead, we are needing your help with a few official housekeeping items:
First, after your event is completed, please take a moment to fill out the post-event form. We are wanting to track the following stats in order to provide a comprehensive overview of what really happened:
It's very important that we get this information so please be diligent to keep count during your event.
Secondly, we would like every location to send us a group shot of the photographers and volunteers with someone holding a landscape 8.5x11 paper with your city, state and country written on it. Please send your hi-res image to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third, if you are handing out digital files to your participants, please take a moment and download our copyright release form. This will ensure that they can reproduce at any retail establishment without a problem.
Finally, we just received our last shipment of H-P apparel in for the 2009 event. If you've been waiting to order your 2009 H-P memento, place your order today! Quantities are limited. Please note: Unless you live in or near Nashville, TN, you won't be able to receive your shipment before Saturday.
Please remember that Help-Portrait is about giving, not taking. No model release forms should be given out during this event. For one day, we are asking you to give up your rights for the benefit of others.
On behalf of the Help-Portrait organizers, thank you so much for participating this year. You've blown our minds at what's possible when people set their minds on giving back.
Have a great night.
