Damaged Photos? Operation Photo Rescue Can Help, For Free

Damaged Photos? Operation Photo Rescue Can Help, For Free

There’s a bunch of helpful guys based in Fredericksburg, VA who can help restore your old and damaged photos, and they do it for free. Yes, free restoration for photos damaged by natural disasters.

They call themselves Operation Photo Rescue (OPR), a volunteer network of professional photojournalists and amateur digital photographers, graphic designers and image restoration artists. Their mission: to repair photographs damaged by unforeseen circumstances such as house fires and natural disasters at no cost to the people who own them.

Why do they do what they do? Believe it or not, they just love doing it. Not that it’s easy; some photos can be very frustrating to restore. They are motivated by the pure and simple joy of seeing people happy again after having restored their treasured photos.

Got a photo recently drowned in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike and Gustav, even by Katrina? Go, give OPR a try. You just might smile again.
