Smile Volunteer Photo Rescue Program

The tsunami following the 11th March 9.0 magnitude earthquake in Japan , destroyed livelihoods, homes, possessions and history. As people fled for high ground, often the last thing they tried to save and the first thing they went back to salvage were their photographs. What remains today are thousands of partially damaged, destroyed and lost photos . If you're a very good or near professional restorer looking to get involved, contact: photorescue@hands.org


More information may be had from ALL HANDS VOLUNTEER

That is wonderful helen, they need all the help that can be mustered. Perhaps you could also help "guide" other volunteers to the site. After all you are one of the "hot ones," that can garnish more attention than I. Anyway good on you for helping.

Ok sorry Lurch didn't realize they've answered mine within 24 hrs there isn't much photos in the gallery to be restored just a couple, I am still trying to find my way around.

Would this be your first time you've registered with them? if it is you'll have to registered again to be able to download photo for restorations from another part of the forum.

Hope this helps
