Care2 recently announced the 10 finalists in Care2’s “Hero Next Door” contest. If you haven’t voted yet, please be sure to vote for your favorite hero so that he or she has a chance to win $2,500 and a matching $2,500 for charity.
This contest is a great reminder that our communities are full of ordinary people doing extraordinary things to make a difference. We had more than 700 nominations honoring heroes doing everything from helping out a family member in need, to traveling across the world to assist strangers they have never met. Our finalists are making a difference in the areas of animal welfare, the environment, poverty, safety, health, and more.
I encourage you to read the stories of our top 10 finalists, and vote for your favorite. I promise you they will warm your heart, and remind you that it’s possible for all of us to make a difference.
