Durham, NC (PRWEB) October 2, 2008
A new blog (http://www.thechangeordie.org) dedicated to celebrating "all the ordinary and extraordinary folks who are actually making the world a better place to live," is putting its money where its mouth is.
To launch the new blog, The Republik, the ad agency behind http://www.thechangeordie.org, is sending an e-blast to over 2,500 friends, family and business associates asking them to vote for one of nine "change agents". When a recipient votes, they will be taken immediately to the home page of the blog where a running tally of the votes will be featured. The change agent with the most votes will receive a $50,000 donation from The Republik.
"It's a great way to get folks to check out http://www.thechangeordie.org while rewarding a person or organization we think will make a tremendously positive change to the world," says The Republik CEO, Robert West.
The voting poll closes November 4, 2008 and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
http://www.Thechangeordie.org features constantly updated news, ideas and commentary on people, organizations and businesses that are changing the world in positive ways.
