Nominees Maimakterion 2014

For Maimakterion, there are three worthy causes to pick from, submitted by our members. They are the Albert Kennedy Trust, the Metro CareRing, and Street Angels Hawaii.

The Albert Kennedy Trust
Since 1989, Albert Kennedy Trust has supported Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) young people (up to 25 year old) who are homeless or living in a hostile environment in London, Manchster and Newcastle. Their services include supported lodgings, mentoring, training and advice & guidance. The cause was suggested by community member Ana Perez, who is currently holding a fundraiser for it.

The Metro CareRing
Metro CareRing operates one of Denver’s largest hunger-relief programs, including a fresh foods shopping market, teaching garden, and weekly healthy living and nutrition classes. Situated in the heart of Denver, Metro CareRing distributes between 4,000 to 6,000 pounds of food, baby items, and personal care products in helping to meet the nutritional and health needs of up to 500 people every day. Metro CareRing takes a progressive approach in developing self-sufficiency programs and offering opportunities for participants to learn about healthy habits and develop assets-based goals. Metro CareRing is also one of the area’s leading non-profits in the ID Partnership and helps with utilities assistance. Thanks to 170 volunteers weekly, Metro CareRing is a beacon of hope for Denver's hungry families and individuals.

Street Angels Hawaii
The Street Angel project is an experience that connects neighbours in heartfelt ways that inspire everyone engaged. They are a family of interested people, 100% volunteer based, sharing home cooked healthy vegetarian meals, good cheer, clothes and supplies, creative possibilities, and encouragement to neighbours in their city who are sleeping under bushes or living in shelters.

The deadline for voting is November 11th, but of course you are also free to start making your donations today.
