Honoring caregivers through the Shire BRAVE Awards

Monday, June 27, 2011

As many of you know, we at Fusion Communications launched our brand new website over the weekend—a labor of love, as they say.  A big thank you to all of you who have taken the time to visit the site and to let me know.  Some of you have asked about that home page photo.  The answer to that question is:  I snapped the shot while sitting in a tiny plane headed toward Chicago from Appleton, Wisconsin.

One of the companies that is featured on the Fusion Communications site is Shire plc, a global specialty biopharmaceutical company that is led by people who continue to look for ways to make a real and meaningful contribution to the many communities in which it has a presence.  I have worked with Shire for many years; I have been grateful for the honor.

One of the newest Shire initiatives is the BRAVE Awards, designed "to acknowledge ordinary people who give of themselves by caring for others in a meaningful, dedicated and selfless manner."  Each recipient of a Brave Award will be given $10,000 USD.

Essentially, Shire is seeking stories about real caregivers. I post this here because I read your stories, learn from your convictions, marvel at your courage, and know first-hand that selflessness pervades the readership of this blog.  There are, no doubt, deserving caregivers among you.

I present the BRAVE Awards to you here, then.  Find out more by visiting this site.

I've been exploring your new site. You work on such cool projects!
That award is really special- more 'ordinary' people should be honored like that.
