Hollywood has the Oscar. Broadway has the Tony. Now Philanthropy has the CLASSY award!
Our 2010 “Love Missouri’s Children” advocacy campaign has been nominated for a CLASSY award. This campaign, amidst severe budget cuts to Parents as Teachers in Missouri, led one Kansas City area mom, Michelle Gieselman, to start the Save MO Parents as Teachers Facebook page which ultimately resulted in the governor’s recommendation of a $3 million restoration of funds to Missouri Parents as Teachers.
To qualify for the judging round of the competition, our CLASSY nomination page needs to receive at least 100 Facebook “likes” by July 8th.
