True Hero Announces Special Competition for Colleges and Universities for Haiti Relief Work

Due to the immense needs following the earthquake of January 12, 2010, True Hero has started a special competition that will be awarding $10,000 to schools (college and high school) for projects devoted to “Haiti Assistance” for the school year ending June 30, 2010. As you are an organization dedicated to providing direct relief to Haiti, we want to reach out to you with the hope that you will pass this opportunity along to any schools that are supporting your organization with their own service projects.

True Hero will award $2,000 each to the top five schools receiving the most votes through June 30, 2010 for projects that assist Haiti, including fundraising projects.  These projects need to be posted under the category “Haiti Assistance”. This special Haiti competition is in addition to 15 awards totaling $25,000 for student service projects this year. Visit www.truehero.org for more information or see the attached document for details.

True Hero, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity, grants cash awards to high school, college and qualified non-profit community youth organizations that sponsor service trips and volunteer activities for students. These cash awards enable more schools to continue their service learning programs and offer a life changing experience to next year’s class of talented students. Our mission is to shine a bright light on student service, and on the schools and sponsors that support these heroic efforts.

NOTE: Participating schools must be in the United States. Reference letters for the winning schools will be required from the Haiti relief or non-profit organization that benefited from the project.  The winning schools can decide to use the awards for additional Haiti Assistance projects or can donate the winnings to a Haiti relief organization of their choice.

For more information, please contact Amanda Abbott or visit the True Hero website.
