Hand Up for Social Good Award

Do you know a great social entrepreneur who deserves a hand up? So many of the good people I’ve met over the last few years who are doing social good, don’t get nearly as much credit as they deserve. You can help me find and recognize great do-gooders around the world; then we’ll give them a hand up.

Your Mark on the World, my new organization, will be giving $1,000 to a small social enterprise or nonprofit (less than $100,000 in 2012 revenue).  Any small organization in the world is eligible to enter. Nominations or applications must be submitted before the end of January 2013.

All those who submit applications or nominations will receive a code that entitles them to receive a free download of my book, Your Mark On The World.

Please complete the application below:

Everyone needs a hand up once in a while

Voting for our “Hand Up for Social Good” Award will end on Thursday at midnight (MST). Thousands of people have voted, which demonstrates how much people care about seeing the world become a better place.

Remember, the finalist will receive a $1,000 prize and the second place organization will receive $500 (from a generous philanthropist).

All of the finalists are doing great things and making the world a much better place. I’m grateful to them for their work and to all of their supporters who make it possible.

If you haven’t voted yet, please take a moment to review the list of finalists at Forbes.com and cast your vote.
