Kenyans have been urged to nominate individuals or/ and organizations to be featured in this year’s Spread the Love Honors Night, to be held on Tuesday 13th September, 2011.
The Spread the Love Campaign, an initiative of Kijiji Records, will for the first time hold an Honors Night gala for individuals/ and or organizations who have made a difference in their communities and industries.
“We have seen persons who have contributed to the society being rewarded world over, but we have not had a chance to reward those who have an impact on us locally. It is time we did that so that we appreciate our efforts,” says Kanji Mbugua, the founder of Kijiji Records.
Nomination is now on going and people can participate online, a process that is free and fair. Each nomination has a category, and each category has been assigned to a panelist who has great experience and exposure.
“There are a total of 11 categories, each with a panelist. So we urge Kenyans to go ahead and do their nominations. The process of picking the winners will be transparent,” says Muthoni Kubai, an official from Spread the Love Campaign.
To nominate, one is required to log on to www.spreadthelovefestival.com/nomination and fill an online form, with a summary of nominees’ initiative or organization, why the nominee deserves recognition as a Spread the Love recipient, how the nominee’s efforts made a difference among others. Nomination process ends on Monday, August 29, 2011.
This year the Spread the Love focus is on four prisons situated within Nairobi and its environs and the campaign is currently in the process of mobilizing people and corporate resources based on a needs assessment done.
This Saturday marks the final prison facelift activity, as inmates and officials from Industrial Area Police Remands join hands with Spread the Love Campaign team for a day’s community service activities. So far, Nairobi West Prison, Embakasi Prison and Langata Women’s Prison have benefited from this initiative.
