Anthill cool companies awards- TLC for kids nomination

Dearest Tim, No words could thank you enough for all the smiles and laughs you have given me. My time with you has had a great impact on my health. It’s true what they say, ‘Laughter is the best medicine!’ Brook

The Cool Company Awards is a national program that was developed in 2006 to recognise Australian companies that are doing things differently to bring about positive change.

Over 700 aspiring ‘cool companies’ were nominated for the 2012 awards, making ‘The Cools’ one of Australia’s largest business awards programs.

“The Cool Company Awards are extremely egalitarian,” said James Tuckerman, Editor-In-Chief, Anthill Magazine. “Previous winners have included two-person start-ups, not-for-profit social enterprises, large private companies and publicly-listed corporations.”

“Judging takes into account far more than mere business variables, such as revenue and wealth. The criteria are geared to consider other qualities, from the disruptive nature of the product or service to the culture of the organisation.”

“Applicants either nominated themselves or were nominated by peers, work colleagues, family, friends and other ‘admirers’. A field of hundreds was examined (and cross-examined) before our judges were able to isolate three Finalists for each of our seven categories.”

What are Cool Company Awards?

The Cool Company Awards was launched in 2006 as a way for Anthill Magazine to publicly acknowledge and celebrate Australian organisations that are doing things differently to bring about positive change. In its seventh year, the awards attracted nominations from over 700 organisations, making it among the largest business award programs in Australia.

About TLC for kids

National non-profit, TLC for kids, is the only organisation in Australia able to provide free support for kids during painful procedures, and within the critical 48 hour period following an emotionally traumatic experience in hospital.

Their driving force is to reach those kids with less common illnesses and diseases such as accident & burns victims and kids who, by sheer misfortune, don't meet the criteria of the existing services.
