    Hello All!  Thought you might be interested in this.  This kind of attention brought to volunteering could mean we all see an increase in applications :)

    In conjunction with I PARTICIPATE, “The View” has launched a search for America’s “Ultimate Volunteer.”  Viewers have been asked to nominate individuals who go above and beyond to help others in their community and who inspire others to action.  The winner, to be announced live on “The View” on October 19, will be chosen by viewers from 10 finalists featured October 6 through October 12.

    The winner will receive one million Starpoints from the SPG loyalty program of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, plus $10,000 cash.
