Philadelphia, PA, March 03, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- For their part in publicly demonstrating gallant acts of chivalry and serving as strong role models for today's young men, Matt Lauer and Carson Daly of NBC's Today Show have each been awarded the honor of "Chivalry Role Model of the Month" for March, 2014.
The honor, presented by BringChivalryBack.com, recognizes noteworthy gestures of chivalry, grandiose or small, which demonstrate the impact that positive gestures by men can have.
During airings of the Today Show on February 26th and 28th, Matt Lauer and Carson Daly each responded chivalrously when co-host Savannah Guthrie mentioned she was cold during segments filmed outdoors. In each case, Mr. Lauer and Mr. Daly quickly offered Ms. Guthrie his ski-cap, which she accepted with grace and a smile.
Relationship expert John Rasiej of BringChivalryBack.com remarks: "Having positive role models is important at a time when popular culture and sports are plagued by stories about men who treat women poorly and where song lyrics disparage and demean women. Many men have lost the understanding of how chivalry can enhance the atmosphere between women and men, both in relationships and in day-to-day encounters. Since so few men are practicing it, young boys and teenagers have few role models showing them behavior that helps build character and gets them noticed in a positive light."
Mr. Rasiej, founder of BringChivalryBack.com, selected the NBC hosts as awardees not because the gestures themselves were remarkable but for how naturally and quickly they were offered. Having chivalry displayed on National television helps spread the message in a powerful way.
BringChivalryBack.com aspires to rekindle the sincere practice of courteous behavior by men toward women. More information is available at www.BringChivalryBack.com.
