The 2nd Annual Save Your Photos Day is coming up on Saturday, 26 September 2015. So write it in your diary or on the calendar, because you don’t want to miss it.

Save Your Photos Day is an annual event that offers individuals the opportunity to connect through local community events, an online event, activities and resources that highlight what you can do to safeguard your photos and treasured memorabilia before disasters or accidents occur. Participation is expected from around the world!
How to get involved?Save Your Photos Day is open to anyone with an interest in helping others safeguard their photos and treasured memorabilia.

Can you imagine losing your treasured photos? Unexpected events such as tornadoes, floods or fires can bring with them great loss and misfortune. This includes the unexpected loss of your family’s treasures like photos, videos, and documents. In the digital age that we live in, it doesn’t just take a natural disaster to wipe our your photo library. A crashed hard drive or broken smart phone can also result in instant loss of treasured memories.

Don’t wait until it is too late. Stop telling yourself “you’ll get on to scanning them soon”. Do it now, and take part on the Save Your Photo Day.
