San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
A compelling new video just released by World of Children Award illustrates the life-changing work of child advocates and introduces viewers to six nonprofit programs that will use public donations responsibly.
The video interviews six child advocates who are leading international programs for children. In November, each received a prestigious 2013 World of Children Award (known as the “Nobel Prize for Child Advocates”) after undergoing a rigorous vetting process.

“Our job at World of Children Award is to make donating safe, to make it healthy, and to make it responsible and accountable,” Co-Founder Harry Leibowitz said. “That’s what we’re here to do.”
The interviewees are providing vital services for vulnerable children around the world, such as life-changing medical care; food and shelter for children in Haiti; classroom supplies for disabled children in South Africa; and safety and rehabilitation for child trafficking victims in India.
World of Children Award has begun the next cycle of finding, vetting, and honoring exceptional individuals who lead programs for children. Nominations can be submitted online at http://www.worldofchildren.org/nominate. Recipients of the 2014 Awards will be flown to New York City, honored at an annual Awards Ceremony, and given up to $50,000 in grant funding.
“World of Children Award is delighted to launch our 2014 search for extraordinary individuals who are leading life-changing programs for vulnerable children around the world,” said Harry Leibowitz, Co-Founder and Co-Chair of World of Children Award. “World of Children Award Honorees are compelling examples of the widespread impact that one person can have on the lives of vulnerable children. Their dedication and unwavering commitment are an inspiration.”
