They want to teach refugees, build a clinic in Kenya, impart life skills to inmates and more. The latest round of Marigold Ideas for Good Contest finalists want to put their ideas to work to improve lives.
And you can help them with just a click – your vote. Five of the 15 finalists will win $5,000 to act on their ideas. One of them will win the money, plus a trip valued at up to $5,000 from Road Scholar.
Will you vote? Find out about this month’s finalists and vote here.
The contest – brought to you by Participant Media, Encore.org and Road Scholar – was inspired by The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a hit movie starring Judi Dench that follows a group of British retirees who travel to India and find new life instead of old age.
There will be five winners each month through October. Check out last month’s winners here.
You can vote in the latest round once a day until Thursday, July 12. And if you have a great idea of your own, enter the Marigold Ideas for Good Contest today.
