The “You Choose, We Give!” (2021) Winners Are…
Tay-bandz. [Dr. Robert Rawdin, nominator]. Taylor Matthews founded Tay-bandz (now The Taylor Matthews Foundation) before passing away at sixteen years of age, five years after being diagnosed with cancer. Tay-Bandz is dedicated to raising awareness of and funding for pediatric cancer research.
JK Community Farm. [Tracey Owens, nominator]. JK Community Farm provides fresh, organic fruit, vegetables and protein to the food insecure. The farm promotes food security and sustainable agriculture through education, community efforts and donations.
Pupstarz Rescue. [Jennifer Wallace, nominator]. Pupstarz Rescue is an all-volunteer animal welfare group committed to the rescue and rehab of dogs and cats in public shelters at high risk of euthanasia. Though we didn’t nominate it ourselves, we’re grateful that 12 individuals did. Our DahliaDog is a Pupstarz rescue.
Thanks to all of you for making the world a better place. You chose! And that’s why three winners will receive donations in the names of the nominators before the end of this month. Also, don’t delay, okay? Start thinking about who you want to nominate next year.
Happy Inauguration Day, everyone. Above all, may 2021 bring all of us peace, good health and great joy.
