This month we want to give you a t-shirt. We’ll send a free BillionGraves t-shirt to anyone who collects and uploads 1,000 GPS-verified* photos before August 31 (anything uploaded from August 1 onward counts).
Collecting 1,000 photos may sound a bit daunting, but it really isn’t. Though your photo-collection rate will vary depending on the types of headstones you’re mapping and environmental factors, about 3 hours spent mapping should get you 1,000 photos. There are dozens of ways to fit those 3 hours into your month.
- Spend 45 minutes each week collecting photos: use your Saturday mornings or spend a lunch break in the fresh air.
- Add 10–15 to your daily commute and collect a small batch of photos every weekday.
- Plan a single, 3-hour weekend morning in the cemetery (be sure to bring a charger for your phone).
1,000 photos is an achievable goal for any of you who have the app: I hope we end up sending out a whole lot of t-shirts when August comes to a close.
*GPS-verified photos are collected and uploaded with the app, not the web-based uploader we’re currently testing.
