Our Parent Champion, Janae Moss, was in a recent Utah Business Magazine competition and won $16,000 for Help Me Grow! Here is a short post, written by her. Thank you for all your support and votes!
Help Me Grow Utah
Recently I was nominated, and selected by Utah Business Magazine, for "30 Women to Watch" in the May edition. It was an honor, and such a surprise. In conjunction with this award, they held a social media contest where each of the 30 women had the chance to win $1,000 cash, and a $15,000 ad campaign for the charity of their choice, by getting the most votes. Of course, I chose Help Me Grow for my charity - as we have needed funding and support in the state of Utah for several years now.
I am happy to say, that after two weeks of campaigning and begging for votes, I won. Not only did I win, WE won over 800 votes above the next contestant closest to me. I attribute this to that fact that Help Me Grow, and United Way of Utah county is relationship based. Everyone that supports me in my businesses, non-profit work, and friends on Facebook, want to see this program expand.
I am really excited about the cash and ad campaign, but more importantly, about the awareness that this award will generate. I could not have done it alone, but together with so many amazing people seeing the vision, we have done something great!
Thanks for voting, and have a great day!
