Blinken OSA Gave Good Person of the Year Awards
At the end of the year, as part of our efforts to make a difference in our smaller (or larger) community, Blinken OSA traditionally organizes charity actions. Last year, however, instead of donations, we collected stories: positive stories about inspiring people.
We believe, that good news and good stories are greatly needed, therefore, we asked people to write to us about a person who has done something good for their local community. The purpose of the #goodperson2017 campaign was to make people who make a difference in their communities better known to the wider public. (Blinken OSA's call was inspired by the New York Times’ “New Yorker of the Year” campaign.)
