Flooring It Differently By Standing On a Better World

Mannington Industries is Flooring It Differently with its Stand On a Better World Awards program.

This program, now in its third year, looks to honor the women around us who make this world a better place. As the website states:

"There are far too many problems in the world, and far too few problem solvers. The Stand On A Better World Awards honor those who fight to beat the odds."

I first described the program in Enhancing The World Around Us and announced the 2006 winners in Making The World A Better Place.

Although the nominating for 2007 has closed, Mannington has enhanced this year's program with a wonderful social media angle: we get to cast our votes!

That's right. In addition to the formal judging [which will identify an award recipient in each of the local/national/global categories while considering each's contribution socially, economically and environmentally], we have a chance to express our support. So, please, don't wait. Cast your vote by clicking here. 30 amazing women have made it through the nominations. At the very least, click on their photos and read what they have done.

To Mannington and my friends Ellen Madill and Betsy Amoroso, and all those involved with them, I say thank you for Flooring It Differently and focusing attention on the women who give back so intensely.

And, to everyone else, consider how you might make a difference in your community and honor the women who make your world more special.

Disclaimer: We do business with Mannington Industries in our contract carpet fiber division.
