Please Vote for the Next Winner of the Care2 Impact Prize

Recognizing great work is something we can never do too often.  And in the nonprofit sector, where so much good work is being done every day, with so much heart, and for such great causes, well, as Willy Loman says in Death of A Salesman:  "Attention must be paid."

That's why I think that each of us who work in the nonprofit sector -- especially if we're doing marketing, fundraising, advocacy and social media -- should take a minute and go cast a vote for the next winner of the Care2 Impact Prize. (Full disclosure: My former employer, Care2, created this prize in partnership with NTEN (I am on their board), to celebrate the work of professionals in the nonprofit sector who are making important contributions to the field of online advocacy, online fundraising or both.

Vote now!

Anyone can vote, starting now until noon Pacific Time on Monday, April 2nd.

The winner gets a cash award of $1,000, plus $1,000 to donate to their favorite charity. The prize will be awarded on April 5th at NTEN's Nonprofit Technology Conference in San Francisco.

This year's five nominees are an inspiring bunch, namely:

Marc Sirkin - VP of Social Marketing & Online Fundraising at Autism Speaks
Paull Young - Director of Digital at charity: water
Nancy Lublin - CEO & "Chief Old Person" at
Geoff Handy - VP of Direct Marketing & Membership at Humane Society of the United States
Vinay Bhagat - Founder & Chief Strategy Officer at Convio

 So let's help to recognize these folks today, because remember:  "Attention must be paid!"
