I am amazed and delighted to announce that I’ve been shortlisted for the 2019 Be The Change Awards!
The Be The Change Awards are an up and coming new initiative for the social impact sector, recognising ethical & sustainable brands with a powerful impact story to tell.
Around the world independent, ethical & sustainable brands are having a positive impact on communities, people and the planet. The awards will recognise, celebrate and raise the profile of those brands who are working towards sustainable development goals and creating positive impact in inspiring and world-changing ways.
There are 12 different categories each judged by experts in their field. Love HeartWood is one of 5 finalists in the Babies and Children category. This category is being judged by Holly Daffurn Editor of Natural Mumma Magazine. It’s a wonderful magazine that Love Heartwood was featured in last year so I’m really hoping I get to meet her.
My submission had to be a 3 minute video telling my story. Speaking to the camera was daunting but distilling my story, motivation and goals was a really helpful exercise in clarity.
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in London on Friday 26th April at the Museum of Brands.
All the Finalists have been put through to the People’s Choice Awards.
This is an opportunity for you to find out about all the finalists and vote for your favourite (hopefully me!) There is a Be The Change Awards YouTube channel containing all the Finalist’s entry videos. The votes will be based on how many likes a video gets, so please go and have a watch and vote for your favourite (links below). This event is all about raising the profile of some of the most inspiring, impact driven brands so please share the videos with your friends. Voting will close at 12 pm GMT on the 12th April.
Unfortunately YouTube have currently suspended the Be The Change Awards channel. While the appeal is in progress you cannot view the videos. The Awards organisers, who haven’t been informed why the channel is suspended, are working to remove the suspension as soon as possible. Follow the Be The Change Awards Facebook page for the latest info.
