As you may remember, we wrote about the company’s philanthropic program–Harlequin More Than Words for National Women’s Month last year. This program, which has been around since 2004, was created based on one simple concept–rewarding ordinary women, who have made extraordinary contributions to their communities.
As fans and readers of Harlequin, you can help change the life of a real-life heroine, so why not help us spread the word and tell everyone you know that our 2012 nominations are open through August 5th.
Here’s how to nominate your real-life Heroine:
- Log onto www.harlequinmorethanwords.com/nominate/
- Before you start filling anything out, read the Contest Rules section carefully… Important rules can be easily missed
- Fill out the following sections: a) Contact Information; b) Nominee’s Information; c) Nominee’s Story and once completed, click submit in hopes that the nominated recipient receives $15,000 toward her charity
Once we narrow down our top five nominees in October, you have the chance to vote. Yes–you have a say in who wins! The online voting phase closes in November and we then announce our winners, and our authors—yes, Harlequin authors (many are New York Times best-selling authors)—will donate their time to write short stories inspired by our recipients’ lives. These stories will then be distributed for free as eBooks.
This program is a testament to how special and connected the Harlequin community is. I can only say that we—as employees, authors or any woman that simply loves to read Harlequin books—should all be proud for the opportunity to touch the lives of great women and support communities all over North America. So, all we ask is of you is to help us get the word out. Tell everyone and anyone who is willing to listen that 2012 nominations are open now!
