We are incredibly excited about Well Aware’s recently announced 2018 Global Impact Award Recipients who will be honored on December 1st at our Rockin’ In a Winter Waterland holiday concert. After much time, research, and consideration, we are proud to present our Global Impact Award to Dr. Auma Obama and our Ambassador of the Year Award to The Patt Christopher Project. These extraordinary people have gone above and beyond to enact positive global change. Their dedication to humanitarian issues is inspiring, and we are proud to honor and celebrate their contributions.
First, a bit of background around the Global Impact Awards. Well Aware established these annual awards in 2017 as a way to further recognize and thank the remarkable friends, partners, philanthropists, and supporters that we have within our community. We seek to honor spectacular individuals or groups not only for their deep commitment to the work of Well Aware but for their overall astounding efforts in addressing global humanitarian issues. Apart from embodying the dedication of true humanitarians, recipients also embody Well Aware’s core values: integrity, community, compassion, and innovation.
Our highest honor, the Well Aware Global Impact Award, recognizes an outstanding individual for their commitment to positively changing the world through leadership, advocacy, outreach, and support. The recipient demonstrates a passion and devotion to addressing the world's most important social and humanitarian challenges. This year, our highest honor goes to Dr. Auma Obama.
