George Herald - - News - Il­se S­choon­raad

Do you know so­meo­ne who un­sel­f­ishly gi­ves to our ci­ty wit­hout com­pen­sa­ti­on or ex­pec­ta­ti­on? So­meo­ne who ma­kes a dif­fe­ren­ce in our com­mu­ni­ty with pas­si­on and ent­hu­si­asm?

If so, this per­son can be the next Ge­or­ge Good Ci­ti­zen of the Month!

Ge­or­ge He­rald has ta­ken hands with We Are Ge­or­ge and ot­her ma­jor ro­le play­ers to pro­mo­te and sup­port the Ge­or­ge Good Ci­ti­zen A­ward i­ni­ti­a­ti­ve.

The i­ni­ti­a­ti­ve was star­ted in Oc­to­ber to re­cog­ni­se de­ser­ving ci­ti­zens who walk the ex­tra mi­le to ma­ke Ge­or­ge a bet­ter pla­ce.

A pri­ze of R1 000 cash is a­war­ded e­ach month to the ci­ti­zen who was vo­ted Ge­or­ge Good Ci­ti­zen of the Month by the pu­blic on Fa­ce­book. The en­ti­re Ge­or­ge com­mu­ni­ty can get in­vol­ved by no­mi­na­ting so­meo­ne spe­ci­al and by vo­ting for who t­hey think should win.

The per­son be­hind the i­ni­ti­a­ti­ve is E­den Ge­or­ge He­rald Li­ons mem­ber Se­an Sny­man, who says it is im­por­tant that tho­se who re­al­ly ma­ke a dif­fe­ren­ce are re­cog­ni­sed for their ef­forts. "A­war­ding the or­di­na­ry heroes of Ge­or­ge are cer­tain to en­coura­ge and in­spi­re all ci­ti­zens to fol­low suit. If e­ver­yo­ne ma­kes a po­si­ti­ve dif­fe­ren­ce, we will soon be a shi­ning ex­am­ple to the rest of the coun­try."

Mi­kai­la Hen­drikz of We Are Ge­or­ge, the main spon­sor of the a­ward, says We Are Ge­or­ge is ex­ci­ted to be a part of this jour­ney.

"We lo­ve our town and its pe­op­le and are so hap­py to sup­port such a won­der­ful i­ni­ti­a­ti­ve. This a­ward re­pre­sents e­ver­y­thing our mem­bers em­bra­ce: a bet­ter li­fe for all in a sa­fe, cle­an and ca­ring en­vi­ron­ment."

We Are Ge­or­ge was cre­a­ted by lo­cal bu­si­nes­ses and re­si­dents with the vi­si­on of u­plif­ting and im­pro­ving Ge­or­ge and boos­ting in­ves­t­ment in the CBD.

Ser­vaas de Kock, mar­ke­ting and sa­les di­rec­tor of Group E­di­tors, says as a lo­cal news­pa­per that is en­tren­ched in its com­mu­ni­ty, Ge­or­ge He­rald em­bra­ces all the va­lu­es the a­ward re­pre­sents. "Just li­ke our pa­per, this a­ward is for the pe­op­le, ma­de pos­si­ble by the pe­op­le. E­very week the Ge­or­ge He­rald is fil­led with pho­tos and sto­ries of spe­ci­al pe­op­le who un­sel­f­ishly ma­ke a dif­fe­ren­ce. We are proud to be on bo­ard. Start no­mi­na­ting and p­le­a­se vo­te!"

The i­ni­ti­a­ti­ve is sup­por­ted by the E­den Li­ons Club, EDENfm and the Fa­ce­book groups Lo­ka­sie Staan Saam, Ge­or­gie­te Staan Saam and Lo­veGe­or­ge.
