Checked out our National Philanthropy Day® finalists? You’ve seen OUR philanthropic idols and inspirations. Now tell us who is yours!
Submit a short video—a selfie—no longer than a minute telling us who—or what—your philanthropic idol is, and why! It can be anyone: a family member, friend, acquaintance or even someone you’ve never met before, but has always inspired you. Or maybe it was an organization or company, or perhaps a situation, a story, a movie, a poem—something that moved you to action.
And here is a submitted "selfie" (right) to give you an idea of what to do!
The five most popular videos (determined by overall votes) will win $500 to the charity of their choice donated in their name. AFP will pick a “staff’s choice” winner for an additional $500 donation.
Submissions are being accepted now—just upload your video and give us your name, contact email or Twitter handle, the name of your idol/inspiration, and one sentence about why your philanthropic idol is the BEST.
The deadline to submit is October 22nd, so submit today! Voting will begin October 25th and be open through Monday, November 10th.
We’ll compile the top five and announce them on Nov. 15, National Philanthropy Day®!
