Natural disasters such as hurricanes Sandy, Harvey and Irma are often the destroyers of family heirlooms, such as furniture, clothing and photographs. Of those three, photographs are generally considered the hardest to replace. Often, they are simply not replaceable.

With the natural events of the last three weeks hitting the south and southeast of the United States, numerous physical photo albums, videos and other irreplaceable memories were lost forever as flood waters and high winds tore communities and dwellings to pieces.

A little planning in advance can save these memories forever, and ScanMyPhotos.com is offering to help people think about doing this.

Irvine, Calif.-based ScanMyPhotos.com, founded in 1990 and a service that has scanned more than 400 million photos for posterity, is offering free photo scanning for hurricane relief and preparedness. Obviously, it's too late for victims of the recent storms, but it's not too late to plan for future events like these, because they will happen.

If you are a resident of Texas or Florida, ScanMyPhotos.com will digitize your photos without charge for up to 500 4×6 standard pictures per family/address. See this webpage for full details and ordering instructions. There is a $14.95 return shipping and handling fee.

There are some restrictions, but this offer should get people thinking about storing and preserving what's really important in their lives. Questions can be directed to (949) 474-7654.
