“Our business is built on connecting people and creating more from life’s moments. In these challenging times, that is more important than ever,” said Jim Hilt, Shutterfly president. “It’s been incredible to see how communities around the globe are coming together to lift one another up. At Shutterfly, we have a responsibility to help amplify these efforts and shine a light on the good in the world, today and every day. We’re very happy to have a platform to do that through Shutterfly For Good.”
Shutterfly For Good
As of mid-May, Shutterfly donated more than $750,000 to organizations nationwide that are helping communities most in need during the Covid-19 pandemic. Furthermore, the company has donated $495,000 to multiple organizations. These include groups supporting the manufacturing and distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE); food-related charities; and healthcare via its partnership with The Ellen Show.
It has also donated $225,000 to distribute diapers, formula, baby food, shampoo and soap to the most vulnerable families in America via its partnership with Baby2Baby.
In addition, the company is donating $20,000 directly to Feeding America’s national response fund. This money will support the organization’s mission to feed people facing hunger and food insecurity.
Supporting America’s PPE Supply Chain
The company partnered with Feeding America to offer a Buy1Give1 promotion. For every purchase of a single or 4-pack of face masks, it will donate the equivalent amount of face masks to local Feeding America food banks up until August 30, 2020.
Plus, Snapfish, which joined the Shutterfly Inc. family this January, is also producing fully customizable cloth face masks. It is making ready-made versions honoring our frontline workers as well as more lighthearted designs.
