L'Oréal Paris announces Women of Worth recipients
L'Oréal Paris announced on Friday the recipients of its inaugural Canadian Women of Worth program. The Canadian grant program was first announced last September and recognizes women who make a difference in their communities by giving back.
Ten Women have been selected and will receive a $10,000 grant for her charity at an Awards Gala on March 8. One of the 10 Women of Worth Honourees will also be selected as the National Honouree and will be awarded an additional $10,000 grant for her charity at the Awards Gala.
"We have been inspired and awestruck by the hundreds of Women of Worth nominations we received about extraordinary Canadian women who are selflessly volunteering their time and talents to make Canada a better place," said Stephanie Binette, General Manager, L'Oréal Paris in Canada, in a news statement. "Our first Canadian Women of Worth are advocates for refugees and the homeless, and champions for women and youth in need, among many other important causes.”
The inaugural Canadian Women of Worth Honourees are Abirami Kirubarajan from Multicultural Youth CAN; Audrey Guth from Nanny Angel Network; Betty Lorraine Cornelius from Cangrands; Cheryl Perera from OneChild; Deanna McCarron from Kidzact; Eva von Jagow from DueNorth; Kirsten Bourque from Street Feet at Sunshine House; Lia Grimanis from Up With Women; Nayiri Tavlian from Hay Doun; and Sheliza Kassam from Children's Birthday Miracles.
The program received more than 350 nominations which were judged by L'Oréal Paris and volunteer service organization, Points of Light. Selection criteria was based on the impact of the cause on the social fabric of the community, the nominee's ability to meet an unmet community need or concern, as well as the passion and innovation demonstrated to effect change.
L'Oréal Paris is a division of L'Oréal Canada. Headquartered in Montreal, L'Oréal Canada had sales of $1.054 billion in 2015.
