Pro Bono Role Model of the Year

Do you know a mom or dad who is a professional superhero? Then you must nominate them to Taproot Foundation’s first-ever Pro Bono Role Model of the Year.

Wondering what makes a professional superhero? "These are the parents that get the kids dressed and out of the door, are rock stars at work and, in between, get everyone motivated to make a difference faster than a train, plane or automobile," according to the Taproot Foundation’s website. 

Details and Prizes

Nominate an individual (or yourself!) between October 1 and November 4th, 2010.

The winner will receive the title of Taproot Foundation’s first-ever Pro Bono Role Model of the Year and represent the foundation at the 2011 National Conference on Volunteering and Service from June 6 – 8 in New Orleans, Louisiana!

  • In addition to an all-expenses paid trip to the conference in New Orleans, the new spokesperson will be decked out in brand new fits courtesy of gift cards provided by Banana Republic.
  • The foundation will capture the story of why the winner is a Pro Bono Role Model of the Year by way of a super-sick illustration by Kevin McGrath (valued at over $2,000) of the work that they do both at the office and pro bono.
  • The winner will also be featured on the Foundations' website and invited to guest blog for a full year.

Sounds pretty cool to me. Perhaps one of you social change Frogloopers will take the prize!
