Burlington, VT (PRWEB) July 30, 2013
Bob Hooker didn’t have to ponder too long about who would receive a $500 donation in the VT Live Work Give contest, a contest that awards a Vermont nonprofit $500 in a Vermont resident’s name. His entry was randomly selected and he directed the donation to Vermont Folklife Center, his employer.
“For us, “folklife” encompasses the exploration and documentation of traditional culture in Vermont—in the past and present,” said Ned Castle of Vermont Folklife Center. “Our programs target a diverse array of Vermonters from traditional fiddlers to New American weavers.”

Margaret York chose a nonprofit that recently touched someone she knew. York selected AWARE, which serves over 240 direct victims of domestic and sexual violence each year and nearly 200 children of those victims. They also provide the community with education and prevention classes, trainings and events.
"I have a dear friend who needed to make use of AWARE's services, and I was extremely impressed with the work they do and their dedication, compassion, and integrity. I'm glad to have this opportunity to support their important work,” said York.
“At AWARE we believe (the victims) and validate their fears and concerns,” said Executive Director Anna Pirie. “We tell them the truth about how the judicial system works and give them information to help them in maneuvering the court system and utilizing their legal rights to obtain custody of their children and to receive financial support.”

The VT Live Work Give campaign contest allows both individuals and employers to enter and, if chosen in a quarterly drawing, each of the two winners can select one Vermont nonprofit charity to be the recipient of a $500 donation from JobsInVT.com. Contestants can enter once at any time during the contest and will be considered for each drawing thereafter. At the end of the contest, in February 2014, JobsInVT.com will double their donations when they pick a final job seeker and a final employer to select the two final nonprofit recipients, and each nonprofit will receive a $1,000 donation. See contest rules for details.
