Just in time for the holidays, PLANETCIVIC, the new platform allowing citizens to interact with local government and each other, introduces the Montclair Altruist Award, a new community service award recognizing someone who gives selflessly and brings positive change to Montclair.
When you log onto PLANETCIVIC, click “Give Thanks” on the sidebar to vote for someone already nominated or nominate someone you think deserves the Montclair Altruist Award. The winner will be determined by votes from PLANETCIVIC community members. The person with the most “thank you” votes in the PLANETCIVIC platform by noon on December 30 becomes the first winner of the Montclair Altruist Award, and scores a $100 gift certificate to a local restaurant and a $500 donation to a local charity of the winner’s choice.
Says Javier Guardo, founder of PLANETCIVIC, “Even if your nominee doesn’t win, he or she will receive a public thank you, which is very powerful. We want to spread true holiday spirit — an ethos of generosity, service and optimism — by recognizing the legion of volunteers who give so selflessly to our community.”
