Bridge, Baltimore Maryland. Winner Against the Odds: My nomination is a 4 year old little girl named Bridge and her family. We live here in Baltimore , MD and I was her teacher at daycare. At age 2 , Bridget fell very ill just out of the blue and after a few days we found out it was her tiny heart. Bridget needed a new heart , but she stayed strong until that perfect new heart came. Bridget came through surgery with flying colors and now shows her scare proudly. Soon after surgery, Bridget and her family had red bracelets made to give away to anyone who donated money to help families pay for children’s medications, including Bridget’s own, that she still has to take every day for the rest of her life. Bridget and her family aren’t only winners , they are an inspiration as well. By Ashley Boughan
Helping Hands of the Eastern Shore, Barclay, Maryland. Winning Benefactors: They are a group that started on Facebook and help people in need who may need items and help with repairing their homes. This group has been getting alot of attention in the area and I believe that it would be nice to do an article about them. By Chad
Lauren Beckley, Montgomery Village, Maryland. Winning Citizen: Vet technician Lauren Beckley knows that powerful change starts with one person. Keenly aware of the hardships facing our pet population, she is positively impacting animals and people. She’s extremely focused on educating people about puppy mills, overpopulation, and the appalling reality that most surrendered pets have only 72 hours to find a new home before being “euthanized” – a term Lauren feels attempts to soften the traumatic death walks of healthy, adoptable animals. Currently, she finds responsible guardians for pets that overwhelmed owners can no longer keep. Her goal is to rally more helping hearts and hands by increasing awareness of how we treat our vulnerable pet population. Lauren believes in the compassionate hearts of people, that when myths are exposed and facts are revealed, Americans will do the right thing for man’s best friend. By Irene Saah
Lisa and Nevin Randle, Edgewood Maryland. Winning Benefactors: It all began with a rabbit. An abandoned and very sickly rabbit named Luna, who then inspired her caretakers, Lisa and Nevin Randle, to found Luna’s House, where they continue to shelter and foster small animals, including cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, birds, and of course, rabbits. Their compassion and generosity has inspired a community network of foster homes and their difficult but rewarding struggle lends meaning and purpose to a world often lacking in both. By Steph Lee
