For all the DIY, creative folks out there, this is for you. Our sister publication, Fresh Home Magazine just announced their first annual Build a Better World Awards.
Fresh Home wants to recognize and support those who have helped improve their neighborhood, city, state, country or world in a hands-on way, and yes, this includes birders & gardeners! Here are some nominee ideas from Fresh Home to get you started:
• DIYers who use their mad decorating skills to make over school libraries or animal shelters or otherwise bring beauty to places in need of it.
• Creative geniuses who have improved fundraising activities for food pantries or children’s charities by bringing a fresh, new approach.
• Hands-on people who have created an insanely cool item (or items) to sell in support of charitable organizations.
• Volunteers who use professional skills from their day jobs as designers, bakers, musicians, marketers, potters, writers, Etsy sellers or any other creative field in the service of a worthy cause.
For details on how to nominate someone, visit Fresh Home blog, and start thinking…nominations are due by April 17, 2011!
Who do you have in mind?
