Flickr for Good
A few of the good things happening on Flickr
A photo gives us the ability to see what goes on in the world, but can also move us to care, or motivate us to help. Many individuals and organizations use Flickr to share their mission to make the world better, and this is just a sample of what's going on on Flickr.
We've partnered with TechSoup, a US-based non-profit technology resource, to donate 10,000 1-year Flickr pro accounts for good causes. TechSoup and its international partners will distribute these to qualifying non-profit organizations.
