Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,
I’ve been nominated for the Ebony Magazine MANifest Honors for Black Male Achievement (See notice and link below). I’m interested in the award as so far as it can bring attention to Fathers, Families, Healthy Communities (FFHC), of which I am the director. You can visit our website: www.ffhc.org to learn more about FFHC. There is no limit to the number of votes you can cast for me. So vote and vote often. If you have questions please feel free to contact me.
Thank you in advance for your support,
You have been personally selected as a nominee for the MANifest Honors for Black Male Achievement!
What are the MANifest Honors, you ask?
Simply put, the first-ever MANifest Honors for Black Male Achievement is a partnership between EBONY magazine and The Campaign for Black Male Achievement (Open Society Foundations) to recognize the most outstanding work and organizations that inform and uplift Black boys and men each and every day.
EBONY.com will host online voting beginning Monday, September 17, 2012. We will send you a link (http://www.ebony.com/votingcampaign/vote-manifest-honors-for-black-male-achievement) to the voting page on Monday and we encourage you to invite your colleagues, friends and family to support you by voting. There is no limit to the amount of votes you can amass, and each individual can vote as many times as he/she desires.
So call out the troops! Use social media to your advantage! The official hashtags for the event are: #BMAForum #ManifestHonors.
The winners will be announced and awarded at the CBMA Innovation and Impact Forum, “What Winning Looks Like: Investing In What Works”in New York City on Wednesday, October 3, 2012.
Congratulations, again, on your nomination, and a humble thank you for all that you do.
