Thank you again for your support during the 10,000 Names in 100 Days campaign. We said we’d reward a few of you for taking the time out to nominate. And now, we are proud to announce the winners!
When you submitted your stories or nominated someone, your name was tagged with a number in our big, comprehensive list. To select our prizewinners, we randomly picked numbers via the website randomizer.org (you can check: the numbers that get selected are certainly random!). We matched those numbers to our big list, and voila: here are our prizewinners!
- Jen O’Neal and Jeff Manheimer from San Francisco, California. Jen is a true social entrepreneur. She is the co-founder of Tripping, a travel site that encourages cultural exchange and also offers scholarships to students who can’t afford to travel. And Jeff works with her.
- Amalia Garzon from Bogota, Colombia, works with Dance4Peace (founded by Sara Potler, who is another of our nominees!), which fuses physical and arts education to promote global peace.
- Susan Pavlin from Atlanta, Georgia, founded Global Growers, an organization which helps local farmers get their produce into big kitchens and offers support and assistance to community farms.
- Saba Gul is the Founder and Executive Director of Bliss in Pakistan, which offers education to girls who would normally have to give up school in order to work. With a curriculum of both business and life skills, the girls learn how to create their own small businesses while continuing their education and continuing to support their families.
The prizes are winding their way to these cool folks now, so let’s give them a big (virtual) round of applause!
And although the campaign officially ended on the 15th of May, we still want to hear from you! Continue to share stories about the work you do and how you’re changing the world with us at email@example.com.
