“We stand together with our employees, neighbors, and communities across
the state who have been so devastatingly impacted by the recent
wildfires,” said Christopher North, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Shutterfly, Inc. “On Giving Tuesday, we’re doing our part to
serve those most in need and help rebuild for the future.”
Shutterfly will donate a total of $150,000 to relief efforts with

“Shutterfly was founded in California and our headquarters is in the Bay
Area. With the acquisition of Lifetouch, the leading U.S. school
photographer, earlier this year, we now also have a manufacturing site
in Chico,” said North. “Our hearts go out to our employees and their
families in Chico, dozens of whom have lost their homes in the fires.
We’re fortunate to have a program in place to support employees in need
with individual grants, which are funded through donations from the
Shutterfly and Lifetouch Foundations as well as from fellow employees.”
In addition to immediate disaster relief, Shutterfly is also committed
to helping families rebuild their precious memories lost in the fires.
“People often say their pictures are among the first things they grab in
evacuation scenarios,” said North. “Our promise has long been to
preserve our customers’ photos for free in the Shutterfly Photo Cloud.
For families impacted by the California fires, as you begin to
rebuild—whenever that is—we’ll also help recreate your most important
memories, reprinting your prints and photo books free of charge.”
