Don't throw out your old photos!

Are you thinking of throwing out some old snapshots - or maybe the old family albums that have been collecting dust in the attic for years? Don't do it!

Yes, thanks to the Internet, your unwanted photos can now be rehoused - irrespective of their quality, condition, size or content. All you need to do is to package them up and put them in the post.

The Photo Fostering Project is based in the UK and was launched in February 2014. Its aim is 're-homing found, forgotten and unwanted photographs' and they're looking for more. Each donated photo is scanned and added to their online re-homing service, ready to be chosen by someone prepared to stump up the £1.00 postage to provide it with a good home (or £1.50 if you live outside the UK).

While I've no connection with the project I do hate to see old photos thrown away. So, if you have some old snaps surplus to your requirements - or if you fancy re-homing someone else's - do take a look at the project's website at
