Healthy Essentials By Johnson & Johnson – CLOSED!

This post on making a difference in the world through your own photography is brought to you by Johnson & Johnson and The Motherhood, who sent me a box of products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are all my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

When I pick up those “Healthy Essentials” products at the drugstore or grocery store I never really pay attention to the manufacturer.  I pick up products I know and trust and add them to my cart.  99% of the products I purchase are manufactured by Johnson and Johnson.  A name we all know and trust.  Products like NEUTROGENA®, BAND-AID® Brand, LISTERINE®, AVEENO®, NEOSPORIN®, VISINE® are just a few.

Johnson and Johnson knows their consumers need these products.  Last Sunday, (April 7th) a coupon book was in our newspapers, full of savings (over $50!).  If you missed it, you can find the coupons available online at

Johnson and Johnson is a company that gives back to the causes they care about and they have made it easy for each one of us to do the same.

They created the “Donate a Photo” app.  Johnson & Johnson will donate one dollar to one of its non-profit partners, which each consumer chooses from a rotating list; up to four activities will be listed at any given time.*  The first three charitable partners to choose from are:

  • Safe Kids: One photo helps protect a child from a sports injury
  • Keep America Beautiful: One photo helps restore a public park
  • Save the Children: One photo helps a newborn get medicine to thrive

Once a cause reaches its goal, another takes its place; the causes that have reached their goal stay in the app, so users can continue to learn more about the organizations and see the photos that helped support them.  Best of all you can donate one photo per day!

photo app

Donating is simple: Just visit to download the free Donate a Photo app, or directly from your phone at the App Store or Google Play and register to get started, then choose a cause, upload a photo and share it on Facebook and Twitter to show the actions and impact to friends and followers and encourage them to get involved in helping the causes, too.

Such a simple act that can make a huge impact!  As part of the celebration to help others, Johnson and Johnson has given me the opportunity to give away a box full of their product brands. (Over $100).  Here is how you can enter to win.

*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.
