  1. When are 2010 winners announced or notified??

  2. Stacia is a beautiful giving honorable & noble woman. Stacia’s always willing to lend a hand at any cost to those in need, especially with selflessness & unwavering devotion. She & a few volunteers founded the currently non-paid volunteer Faithful Heart Foundation. The foundation arose out of dire need in order to assist a friend in crucial need of a heart transplant, due to a virus that took over Faith Tennant's heart. Stacia & volunteers including myself organized fundraisers, aided in continual donations, worked tirelessly at 60 hour shifts with no sleep, networked, to ensure the successful wealth fare of the all inclusive mission for the Tennants & community organizing. What started out as a family call to help has amazingly grown into an all inclusive means to help countless others & inspire public unity without competition through compassionate good will. She is an ordained minister & a successful life/business coach. Stacia's commitment to everyone's well being is beyond reproach. I've personally witnessed numerous acts of kindness without expectation of payment during her coaching. She has given her time, empathy, love, deep appreciation & spirituality to society/humanity profuse times without asking for anything in return. She continues on a daily basis to do whatever she can within her power to make the world a better place. I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to volunteer side by side with this courageous & caring woman. I've witnessed so many miracles that I've lost count! However, they've not gone unrecognized by me, the people directly helped & those around us. Nor has any miracle lost its value regardless of its anonymity. There's too much enlightening information to list here; Stacia consistently demonstrates what she teaches & in spite of her own serious health challenges. She will not allow the mission to be jeopardized. Stacia communicated in a recent conversation with Ruby Gettinger from the Style Network; "that it is only in uniting together in singular purpose that we can heal all those affected by the challenged social economic collapse. We recognize beyond a shadow of a doubt that the trans-formative solution will not come from anything or anyone except ourselves. We are THE ANSWER. Faithful Heart & other great nonprofit global organizations offer an empowered alternative, through the unlimited power of compassionate goodwill. We stand convicted that it is our divine privilege & true mission to help one another through the heart inspired purpose we share." Stacia has also respectively said to Bon Jovi, Marianne Williamson & media, "Besides being a parent there is no other function mightier than to contribute to the unselfish well being of one another." Again, I am a part of the front line volunteer alliance, which truly & laudably encourages global community transformation. I am profoundly appreciative for every opportunity to join Stacia as she passionately motivates a cooperative spirit to respond favorably with charitable actions. Please contact me because it is in my heart to share this miraculous story as it unfolds.
