It’s been a long road to finally get us here – finding our first
goddess of the year. It has been an exciting and wonderful journey and
you have been so awesome throughout. Thank you for your patience,
participation, contributions and so much more! We couldn’t have done
this without you.
From 14 nominees (hand-picked by you, the voter), the voting committee
chose the top 10. They handed the top 10 to you and from that list you
picked the top 5. The top 5 were asked to speak to you (the reader)
personally through an electronic medium about their causes and about
their organizations and personal lives. 3 out of the 5 responded. From
where I sit, they are all winners. Every single woman I have ever had
the pleasure of featuring on our front page is a winners. They are all
doing such marvelous things and I applaud them for making themselves
available to better the lives of others.
Having said that. let me not keep you waiting any longer. With a
whopping majority of the votes, the approval of both myself and the
awards voting committee, our first Goddess of the Year who will receive
a night dedicated to her honor and so much more
I cannot tell you how much I look forward to that June 2012 night.
Congratulations! You deserve it!
