Explanation of my award, listing of recipients, and the why.
|'Human Angels' come in all shapes and sizes. Some are groups, some are forums, and still others may be singular items. What I focus on with this award is the creator's and/or participant's willingness to extend a helping hand to other people in the world through Writing.com. The recipients show a level of excellence that is rarely found.
If it is a group or forum, EVERYONE takes an active role and has the right mindset/character to meet the common goal. I also look at the response from the people toward whom the actions are aimed. If it is a singular Item, then it has been pointed out to me by various persons, and I agreed with the claims of excellence.
The choices for this award can be anything from revisions and editing, to self-help, counseling, or activism. It really doesn't matter to me - as long as what is created serves some purpose and that purpose is served or met.
It is important to state: All recipients were awarded for excellence beyond Writing.com. That is to say, they took what Writing.com has provided them and used it for something greater. They did not focus on Gps, Upgrades, etc - but instead looked towards something with more importance to the individual person or career in Real Life. [This is not to demean the value of the affore mentioned focal points.]
