Philadelphia, PA, April 07, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- In recognition of publicly demonstrating visible acts of chivalry thus serving as positive role models for today's young men, Robert Herjavec, one of the stars on the ABC program "Shark Tank," and Mo Rocca, humorist and correspondent on "CBS Sunday Morning" have each been awarded the honor of "Chivalry Role Model of the Month" for March, 2015.
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 the episode of "Shark Tank" which aired March 13th entrepreneur Dave Alwan of Echo Valley Meats had his son Jordan distribute samples of his meat products to the five "sharks." As Jordan was bringing the sample to Mr. Herjavec first (as most of the show's participants do since he is seated all the way to the right), Mr. Herjavec asked the boy to give the sample to Lori Greiner seated next to him. He goodheartedly offered the young man the advice "Ladies first, of course." That brief moment of guiding Jordan about chivalry provided a reminder not just for the boy in front of him but for millions of boys and men who were watching the program at home.
The award to Mr. Herjavec is notable in that he previously had received recognition as "Chivalry Role Model of the Month" in May 2014 and is the first repeat awardee of the honor.
On the March 29th broadcast of "CBS Sunday Morning," Mo Rocca was doing a segment on Frank Sinatra and interviewing each of his children. Sinatra's daughter Tina was bringing Mr. Rocca to tour Frank Sinatra Hall on the campus of USC, the University of Southern California. As they were walking to the front door, Ms. Sinatra was close to reaching the door when Mo Rocca took a step to the left and darted quickly to be able to open the door for her. He received a gracious "thank you" from Tina Sinatra for the small yet appreciated gesture.
Relationship expert John Rasiej of BringChivalryBack.com remarks, "Gestures of chivalry offered by gentlemen in a visible setting offer important examples of positive and classy behavior to men who may not have realized how valuable their perception as men of good character can be.
"The more we witness and point out these positive role models displaying admirable qualities, the more awareness by men and appreciation by women can grow. For young men at a time when standards have slipped somewhat in terms of elegance and grace, reminders like this offer a valuable approach to which they can aspire."
Mr. Rasiej, founder of BringChivalryBack.com, selected these men and these examples not because either gesture was grandiose or complex but quite the opposite. Each of these gentlemen showed how easily such behavior can be part of the way a gentleman behaves.
BringChivalryBack.com seeks to rekindle the sincere practice of chivalrous behavior by men toward women. More information is available at www.BringChivalryBack.com and at the blog on that website.
