New York, NY, June 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- It has been called everything from “American Idol for Charities” to the “most compelling and fun philanthropic program created for non-profits.”
ReZoom.com, a leading authority on baby boomers, is building A Better World.
ReZoom.com, a new digital media and entertainment company providing lifestyle information and services to the 77 million boomers who are in the middle of their lives, launched “A Better World Awards Program” to pay tribute to local charities across the country that have positively impacted their communities. It is the belief of ReZoom.com that one of the best ways to make the world a better place is to recognize and support those organizations that make it their mission to make a difference on a daily basis.
ReZoom.com asked its constituents to take a few minutes out of their personal lives to tell a story – the story of how a favorite local charity is helping us all. Over 5,000 charities were nominated and over 10,000 stories were received. Through a combination of public voting and judging, 21 Regional charity winners have just been announced. Each of these charities has received a $5,000 cash award and will now have the opportunity to compete for a $100,000 national award. In total, ReZoom.com is underwriting this $200,000 endeavor.

According to ReZoom.com President, Gary Glover, “ReZoom.com is a website, member organization and national magazine designed to redefine life for an ageless generation. We have met our career goals, our children are leaving home and we’re now redefining the second half of our lives by transforming our success into significance. ReZoom believes that this stage of our lives is an ideal time to become more aware of our communities’ larger needs and then becoming committed to making a difference through direct involvement.”
And now, the 21 winning regional charities will begin competing for the $100,000 national award. The national winner will be based on having the largest number of votes. The voting period runs July 9, 2007 through August 10, 2007. People can vote once a day for their local charity by going to: www.rezoom.com
