Hurricane Relief Efforts

We all saw the devastation in Texas and the gulf coast. Now the Caribbean and Florida are facing similar hardships. Picmonic is a company devoted to helping others, and although we’re still a small startup with a small budget, we knew we had to do something.

To aid with the efforts that so many amazing organizations are contributing, Picmonic is donating $1 of all purchases through September to Americares, a trusted health-focused humanitarian organization that responds to people affected by poverty or disaster with life-changing health programs, medicine, and medical supplies. Why is just $1 so important?

$1 = $20 in Aid Delivered


For every $1 donated, Americares provides $20 in aid
because they deliver donated medicine and medical supplies to a trusted network of locally-based providers.
