Re: Volunteer Photo Rescue Program

I applied at Helping Hands about 2 weeks ago and still no word from them. Applied at OPR yesterday and got word back in about 4 hrs. Is this normal for Helping Hands?

I didn't know there was helping hands I might go and have a browse. I usually get reply back from OPR withing 24 hrs there isn't much photos to repair in the gallery. I thought there would be tons.

Hi all, sorry I have not checked back here in a while. The links I originally posted died. I edited the links at the top of the page. I'm don't know why it takes so long to respond to your emails, as I recall it took about a week for photorescue@hands.org to first respond and send me the VolunteerAgreement.pdf to sign and return, then a few days to send the first image to repair. Can you tell me what this "OPR" is you all are speaking of (give a link.)

Link to an article written by volunteer on the ground in Japan.

OK, I see now. Operation Photo Rescue looks to be a worthy group to volunteer to also. Here again are "Japan: Project Tohoku Photo Rescue Program" and a link to some of their on the ground work posted on Flickr. Also, a link to "Facebook Photo Rescue Japan."

Well Lurch, all I know is that a friend told me about "Japan: Project Tohoku Photo Rescue Program." As I recall it did take "awhile" for them to get back with me, long enough that I called my friend and asked her if she had an idea why it was taking so long for a response. Of course she didn't know. I have since determined "All Hands Volunteers" appears to be a mid-sized (5,867 volunteers from 40+ countries 14+ projects in 6 years) organization. The people in charge of the "Tohoku Photo Rescue Program" in Japan seems to be a rather small team of two or three individuals. This is, I think, why it takes awhile for a response. Thank you for you interest in this project, I know they really need the help.
