Unite4:good Searches for Local Heroes with Inspiration Project

Global change movement unite4:good announced Tuesday the launch of its 4:inspiration Project, a monthly effort to identify empowering individuals.

Unite4:good’s founding affiliates will be invited to nominate a “local hero” to speak on the project’s website every month between July and December. Online supporters will be allowed to vote and donate toward that individual’s project, with proceeds split between the individual, founding affiliates and non-profits.

“We are excited to participate in unite4:good’s 4:inspiration project,” said Leslie Goldman, vice president of community fundraising at the U.S. Fund for Unicef. “They are providing a platform to recognize the everyday heroes who are bringing about positive change in the world. We’re hoping that their stories will inspire even more individuals to take action and get involved, both locally and globally.”

In 2015, the six finalists will be featured in a chance to win a $25,000 Impact Grant, voted on by public supporters. They will also be invited to the annual unite4:humanity event in Los Angeles, which will honor the finalists as well as various local individuals and entertainment icons. It will be held in conjunction with Variety.

In addition, their stories will be chronicled by unite4:good entertainment, a program created by Wilmer Valderrama and Anthony Melikhov.

“The opportunity to tell the powerful stories of these remarkable individuals – and to share these stories with the world – is at the core mission of unite4:good entertainment and we believe that through this project we can encourage many others to give back to their communities,” said Valderrama.
