For those who have not yet heard, MLB and People Magazine have teamed up for the PEOPLE All-Stars Among Us program for the second year in a row. This Friday is the deadline and thousands of submissions are pouring in for everyday people who go above and beyond in their community.
Maybe they mentored disadvantaged children, cared for abandoned pets or started a community garden. You tell us! You can even nominate yourself.
A total of 30 everyday All-Stars (one representing each MLB team) will be honored at the 2010 MLB All-Star Game in Anaheim on July 13 and one will be featured in PEOPLE magazine.
Take a few minutes and think about the people in your life who make an impact in other people’s lives. You’ll be glad you did (and so will they!)
I’m sitting in our Philly hotel room at the end of the “off day” which we used to get here. Looking forward to facing the defending World Champions tomorrow, but in the meantime, there’s a really cool opportunity right now for all of you so please take a minute to read this…
Major League Baseball has launched the PEOPLE All-Stars Among Us campaign and you have a chance to make a huge impact on the program and on the life of someone you know. And it’ll only take a couple minutes.
MLB and People magazine are inviting you to nominate the individuals who have gone above and beyond to serve their community. Maybe they helped save a neighbor’s home from foreclosure, donated their time and efforts to a charitable organization, or have been an unsung hero in your life and you’d like to see them recognized. Well, now’s your chance.
All you have to do is visit this website sometime between now and May 22.
You’ll be asked to upload a photo of them and explain in 50 words or less why they deserve to be one of the three finalists for the Dodgers. From there, one winner will be chosen to represent our team at the All-Star Game in St. Louis. And one of those 30 team nominees will actually be featured in PEOPLE magazine!
Please take a moment to forward this along to the people you know and hopefully take the time to nominate those around you who are so deserving.
