CARE for Sandy
Plenty of people are still in need of assistance, and those with Photoshop skills can do their bit through CARE for Sandy, a gratis service that restores hurricane-damaged family photos. Cherished Albums Restoration Effort was launched on November 10, 2012, by Lee Kelly, a Park Slope–based freelance creative director, and since then, volunteers from 30 different countries have repaired around 750 Sandy-ravaged snapshots. While expert Photoshoppers are in high demand, those with scant digital experience can purchase prints and frames on a family’s behalf or keep in contact with folks throughout the restoration process as official Family Chat Ambassadors. Scribes, photographers, illustrators and videographers are encouraged to contribute to the CARE blog, and social-media experts can aid with PR. careforsandy.org.
