WE’RE SETTING THE STAGE FOR YOU TO MAKE IT MATTER
It’s been a year since the release of Mommy and Daddy Do it Pro Bono , the widely-acclaimed children’s book which provides families with a forum to talk about the role of giving back in their professional careers.
To mark this important occasion, Taproot Foundation has given the book a makeover and brought the story to life courtesy of our friends at the advertising agency, Creative Asylum .
We’re taking it a step further by naming Taproot’s very first:
PRO BONO ROLE MODEL OF THE YEAR
Do you know a mom or dad who is a professional superhero? They get the kids dressed and out of the door, are rock stars at work and, in between, get everyone motivated to make a difference faster than a train, plane or automobile?
Great! We want the world to know them too! Submit a mommy or daddy nominee and tell us how they are contributing their skills pro bono to influence social change.
DETAILS AND PRIZES
Nominate an individual (or yourself!) below between October 1 and November 4, 2010 who you feel best fits the above description.
The winner will receive the title of Taproot Foundation’s first-ever Pro Bono Role Model of the Year and represent us at the 2011 National Conference on Volunteering and Service from June 6 – 8 in New Orleans, Louisiana!
In addition to an all-expenses paid trip to the conference in New Orleans, our new spokesperson will be decked out in brand new fits courtesy of gift cards provided by Banana Republic.
We’ll capture the story of why they are Pro Bono Role Model of the Year by way of a super-slick illustration of the work that they do both at the office and pro bono by way of a Kevin McGrath book-style illustration valued at over $2,000.
Finally, they will be featured on our website and invited to guest blog for a full year.
Runners up will also receive a Banana Republic gift card courtesy of our partners at Gap, Inc. and an autographed copy of the book Mommy and Daddy Do it Pro Bono .
