Women of Worth
Mark your calendars for Equal Pay Day on April 17, 2012! Equal Pay Day is held annually in April to signify the point into a year that a woman must work to earn what a man made the previous year. BPW prepares a toolkit for its Legacy Partners to use to promote the day in their communities.
Know a woman who is making a difference in her community through volunteering? Nominate her for L’Oréal’s Women Of Worth Awards. Judges are looking for women 18 and older who are making the world a better place through their community service. Ten women will be chosen as winners. Each will get $10,000 towards her charity; one will get $25,000 and be named the 2012 National Woman Of Worth. Why? Because (as L’Oréal’s slogan says) she’s worth it. Nominations are open through May 31. Go to the Women Of Worth website for more information.
P.S. I completed a 5K Walk in about an hour and raised funds for St. Vincent Meals of Wheels yesterday. http://www.stvincentmow.org
I’ve volunteered for D.A.R.E Afterschool Program, Free Arts for Abused Children, UNICEF and Read to Me L.A. at public libraries. I continue to be involved with many causes and non-profits like The American Diabetes Association, The American Heart Association and Let’s Move West L.A.
P.S. I’ll blog about The tour de Cure Ship to Shore on April 29 & StepOut: Walk to Stop Diabetes on October 2 in Culver City to help raise funds and awareness. www.diabetes.org/tour-shiptoshore, www.stepoutla.com
