Do you know someone who deserves $1,000?

Here at Your Mark On The World, we are running the “Hand Up for Social Good” Award with a $1,000 prize. 

The award will recognize a small nonprofit organization or social enterprise that has a noble purpose and a big impact relative to their budget.

For many large organizations with multi-million dollar budgets, $1,000 wouldn’t mean much. I get that. But there are thousands of small and startup organizations that operate with tiny budgets and they can really use the money.

I need your help. Seriously. The problem is, small things are hard to find. Often, such small organizations have their attention focused on solving big problems and probably aren’t reading my blog here or at Forbes. I need you to help me share the word so that we can find a truly remarkable winner that deserves the money and the recognition that comes with it.

Sure, start ups need the $1,000, but I bet they need the national attention and recognition at Forbes.com even more than the money. All ten finalists will also get profiled on my Forbes page. What would that be worth to a small nonprofit or startup social venture?

Please, give some thought to those who may be good candidates for this award. Share this post with them directly. If you can’t think of one, share this on Facbebook and Twitter so that we can find and recognize a truly deserving organization.
