A couple months ago, donorworx Inc created an Instagram account (@donorworx) and joined the millions of other users posting photos everyday. When people think of Instagram, the first thing that pops to mind is fury photos of cats and snapshots of a delicious meal. In addition to these lighthearted photos, there is an incredible showcase of photojournalists using Instagram to connect you closer to the causes that we care about at donorworx.
Instagram writes, “Photojournalists from around the globe have begun using Instagram as an important part of their storytelling, using the intimacy and immediacy of mobile photography to open up new avenues of engagement with their audiences.” From refugees in Syria, to children celebrating freshly drilled wells in Uganda, photojournalists are capturing and sharing the world’s stories with people in real time through Instagram
