Request to readers: an award, vote for a great charity – TEAM RUBICON

As you know the Catholic New Media Awards for this year have opened voting.  Even though you have to register, I hope you will give WDTPRS your support in these categories:

  • Best Blog by a Cleric
  • Best Blog by a Man
  • Best Produced Podcast

However, there is a secular award going on called the Classy Awards.  WDTPRS is not nominated… but not because we are not classy.

I went there and voted for a charity called TEAM RUBICON, especially because of what they did in Haiti after that devastating earthquake.  TEAM RUBICON – mostly action and very little talk – is found under the “Best Charity” and “Best New Charity” categories.   CLICK HERE.

You do not have to register to vote for TEAM RUBICON in this award.

Look at their bios and their mission statement:

Team Rubicon bridges the critical time gap between large humanitarian disasters and conventional aid response. We provide vanguard medical care by fielding small, self-sustaining, mobile teams of military veterans and medical professionals. To deploy rapidly, we rely heavily on a horizontal command structure, social networking technology, and the employment of local nationals.

Very cool.  Very effective.

    Bless you, Father! I attended a fundraiser for these guys a couple of months ago in San Francisco. They are great: young, energetic, fearless.
