Faces Magazine Awards

We received this email below today to let us know that Children at Risk is a finalist for an Award from Faces Magazine’s annual event to recognize the Best of the Best in Ottawa! As noted – we are in the Volunteer Organization category (down near the bottom of the nomination categories)

Friends and contacts can vote for you once per day, per IP address by visiting the voting page at and search for "children at risk"– voting takes place between January 3rd and January 25th – with the winners being announced at the 2018 Faces Awards event on Saturday, January 27th.

Note that under Not For Profit there is also Destiny’s Way Foundation – who has hosted the New Year’s eve gala that Children at Risk has been part of – so a vote for them would also be great!

There are MANY categories and nominees – but you do not have to fill in all of the ballots – though you might have fun going through them to see if there are any you recognize or want to support with a vote! AND This is – as I said – daily voting – I will send a few reminders but if you can send out to YOUR social media contacts too – hey – maybe there is a chance?!

The Awards are being held at the brand new event space in the Brookstreet Hotel and are being hosted by Ottawa’s own Team Homan, who will be representing Canada at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Women’s Curling. <
