This year, the United Service Organizations (USO) celebrated 75 years of supporting America’s military, including military nurses. During this holiday season, the USO is a cause on Donate a Photo, an app from Johnson & Johnson that connects people to causes they care about.

This year, the United Service Organizations (USO) celebrated its 75th anniversary of strengthening America’s military, including military nurses, by keeping them connected to family, home and country throughout their service.

One of the most prominent ways in which the USO helps connect troops with family members is the USO Wishbook gift program, which provides comfort food packages, long distance bedtime stories, international phone calls, and more to troops. As a special 75-year anniversary gift, Johnson & Johnson is committed to matching Wishbook gifts this holiday season November through December (up to $400,000).

Also during this holiday season, the USO is a cause on Donate a Photo, an app from Johnson & Johnson that connects people to causes they care about. For each photo shared, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to the USO. That $1 will go toward providing a video call or phone call for deployed service members, helping them to stay in contact with their loved ones.  It takes 75 photos to enable 44 connections at a USO Center. Donating a photo is easy, download the app via the App Store or Google Play, select the USO cause and share a photo!

Latest from Johnson & Johnson Nursing
  • For nurses, more flexibility and better work/life balance are essential. Solutions like Mercy Works on Demand are meeting nurses where they are by offering a gig-based approach to scheduling. Not only is Mercy’s innovative approach addressing shortages and improving patient care, it is also bringing joy back to nursing and demonstrating that a new, flexible future is possible for the profession.
  • Building well-being and leadership skills in nursing isn’t a new concept, but surprisingly, it hasn’t traditionally been a formal component of nursing education. As a result, many nurses enter the profession unprepared for what’s ahead. Beginning this winter, a new educational curriculum from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing will pilot a competency-based approach to developing the next generation of nurses at 10 nursing colleges nationwide, focused on empowering students with the skills needed to prioritize self-care, healthy behaviors and well-being in the healthcare work environment.
  • Johnson & Johnson is proud to have supported nurse innovators and entrepreneurs through the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge Awards, which has provided grant funding for nurse-founded healthcare solutions and approaches. But the innovation journey doesn’t stop there. Here, three inspiring QuickFire Challenge awardees share what they’ve been up to since receiving their award, how their solutions have grown and expanded, and their advice for other nurses inspired to solve for healthcare’s biggest challenges.
