I’m amazed at the great ideas that people carry around in their back pockets, hoping one day to get a chance to bring them to life. For 15 people, all over 50, that day is nearly here.
The 15 finalists in this month's Marigold Ideas for Good Contest have long wanted to right a wrong, open up worlds for young people, or make things better for those who need a break. Today they need your vote.
The final 15 want the kind of adventure Judi Dench and Maggie Smith have in the hit movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. They want to expand their horizons by helping others.
But only five will win a $5,000 grant to turn their great ideas into reality. One will win the trip of a lifetime through Road Scholar.
Vote now and help choose which finalists will win.
You can vote once each day between now and Thursday, June 7. And, if you have a great idea of your own, I hope you’ll enter the contest now. We’ll be choosing five new winners each month for six months.
Thanks so much for your help.
