Warmbassadors Tips

Become an Operation Warm Warmbassador!

You’re moments away from changing the lives of children across your community – helping to improve their self-esteem, school attendance and overall wellness!

Here are some tips and tricks on capturing your coat giving event and sharing with us.

Video & Photo Tips:

  • Videos/photos that capture the event in real-time are great, there is no need to “stage” the photography – volunteers helping children, kids picking out and trying on their coat, watching them play with their friends.
  • If you don’t feel comfortable taking photos/videos, find someone who can help you!
  • Sending video files over email can take up a lot of space – try limiting your videos to 30 seconds or less.

How to Send Photos/Videos from Your Camera on PC

Step 1 – Add Photos to Your Computer

  • Use your camera memory card or USB cord and plug them into your PC. If you’re having trouble, do a Google search for “adding photos from <camera name> to PC”

STEP 2 – send photos in an email

  • Under your PC window, locate your camera card or camera. It will probably be under “Devices”. Open the device and drag your photos/videos to your desktop (or save to a folder of your choosing)
  • Next, you want to create a new email to send to us. Address it to your Operation Warm contact and add your city, state and organization in the subject line
  • Finally, click “Attachments” (the icon that looks like a paper clip) and click on the photos/videos you want to send us. Once loaded into the email, click “Send”
