However I would love to still inform you about Energizers Keep Going, Hall Of Fame campaign. Up until February 4th Cal Ripkin Jr was leading the Search for a 2011 Inductee into the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame!
With a record 2,632 consecutive games under his belt, Cal Ripken, Jr. has been compared to the Energizer Bunny® time and again. After retiring from the Major Leagues, he devoted that same boundless energy to doing good work in communities nationwide. Through the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and Ripken Baseball, Cal Ripken, Jr. has made a positive impact, building character and teaching critical life lessons to disadvantaged youth in America’s most distressed neighborhoods.
“Baseball gave me a platform that allowed me to get in front of kids and speak to them about a number of things, including making good choices, teamwork, perseverance and more. Knowing I’m helping others through the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation has been very satisfying to me and my family,” Cal Ripken, Jr. said. “Our hope is by sharing these inspiring stories through the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame, others will look for ways they can try to make a difference.”
Many wonderful stories have been shared which can inspire us all. There are many truly amazing people in this world and it nice to see a company recognize this and give back.
Last year’s Inductee, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and started one of the fastest-growing cancer research fundraisers in the country! Another young, former Finalist raises awareness of the issues facing foster children, each and every past Inductee and Finalist has invigorated, inspired and motivated those around them. The goal of the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame is to create a place where the stories of these courageous, never-quit individuals can live, and now the search is on to find the next Inductee.
This years inductee will be chosen by a panel of independent judges who will narrow the field to 100 Semifinalists, who will be honored in their hometowns. The judges will then select nine Finalists, and Energizer Bunny® Facebook fans will have the opportunity to vote for the 10th Finalist at facebook.com/EnergizerBunny beginning March 17, 2011 and ending March 25, 2011. Each Finalist will receive a $1,000 donation to his or her charity of choice.
All 10 Finalists’ names and stories will be posted online at www.energizer.com/halloffame, at which point the public will be given the chance to select the 2011 Inductee through an online vote. Voting on the Finalists will begin April 4, 2011, and continue through May 13, 2011. Each Finalist vote will trigger a $1.00 donation from Energizer to the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, up to $10,000. Each donation will help connect kids in distressed communities with mentors, giving them the opportunity to learn life's critical lessons while having fun on the fields and off the streets. Now That’s Positivenergy™
The winning nominee will attend a special induction ceremony with Cal Ripken, Jr. at the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame, located at Energizer world headquarters in St. Louis. The Inductee will also receive a $10,000 cash award and an additional $5,000 will be donated to the charity of his or her choice.
