International ePhilanthropy Awards

Today the winners of the 2006 International ePhilanthropy Awards were announced in New York City. The 36 finalists were narrowed down for four categories, plus an overall "Global People's Choice Award" where 2,000 votes were cast over a 10 day period.

And the winners are:
* Best Community Building, Volunterism, or Activism Campaign -
* Best Integrated Online and Offline ePhilanthropy Campaign - Greenpeace International
* Best Special Events Registration and/or Membership Campaign - Kids Help Phone
* Best Online Donations and/or Fundraising Campaign - Network for Good
* Global People's Choice Award - African Well Fund

In addition to a beautiful glass sculpture, winners also received $500 to donated to the charity of their choice. Personally, I was disappointed to hear that another finalist, American Cancer Society did not win in the Best Community Building category for their work with virtual world fundraising... but congratulations to all the winners.
