I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Maytag. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Having spent most my adult life volunteering in some capacity and then much of my work life in the nonprofit world, I have a real appreciation for anyone who practices aspects of philanthropy. Recently, I was blessed with the opportunity to attend the Philanthropy Day luncheon and awards ceremony here in Alaska and was blown away with the spirit of generosity of different Alaskans (giving of time and sometimes their pocketbook!) I’m happy to share about the 2013 Maytag Dependable Leader award for someone dedicated to making a difference in the lives of youth, a particular group that is near and dear to my heart.
From November 12th through November 29th, visit you can visit www.bgca.org/Maytag to learn about all five finalists for this award and the exemplary work they do in their respective communities, and to help make a difference, vote once a day for the nominee they find to best represent a Maytag Dependable Leader! The finalists are:
Albert Hernandez – Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena
Ethan Harris – Boys & Girls Club of Bryant

The winner will join 24 of this year’s other Dependable Leaders across the country and receive a $20,000 financial grant to help his Club continue to improve its impact in its community. The Maytag Dependable Leader Award gives back to Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s professionals and volunteers who continuously give their days to help better the world of youth with whom they work.
