Save Your Photos Day

September 27 was Save Your Photos Day, an international event created to educate the public about the importance of safeguarding and archiving photos. Every year there are over 550 natural disasters around the world and photos are among the most valuable possessions lost. There were over 60 events planned across the US for attendees to scan photos for safe keeping.

One of the largest events was held in Joplin, Missouri. Devastated by a tornado in 2011, the Joplin community came together to prevent the kind of loss of photos and documents that people experienced a few years ago from happening again. About 500 attendees scanned more than 35,000 photos at the Joplin event alone. A team of volunteers helped participants use the KODAK Picture Saver Scanning System PS50, which was donated by Kodak Alaris and E-Z Photo Scan, including a computer, flatbed scanner, software and accessories.
