Do you know someone worthy of being named a humanitarian of the year?
The Canadian Red Cross has opened up nominations to identify Manitobans deserving of that very honour.
“Each year, the Canadian Red Cross is proud to honour Manitobans who have harnessed the power of humanity to improve the lives of individuals at home and abroad,” said Shawn Feely, Canadian Red Cross vice-president, Manitoba and Nunavut.
“We are looking forward to recognizing dedicated Manitobans for their humanitarian efforts but to do that we need individuals nominated for our awards.”
Individuals can be nominated for the Humanitarian of the Year and the Young Humanitarian of the Year Awards online, via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling the Red Cross at (204) 982-7330.
Recipients will be recognized during the annual Power of Humanity Awards luncheon on September 8 at the Delta Winnipeg.
The deadline for nominations is May 16.
