This October, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation will honor ten everyday Louisianians doing extraordinary good for the state’s children at the 2016 Angel Award® ceremony.
This year’s honorees were chosen from a record number of nominations from across the state. Each Angel will receive a $20,000 grant to the charity of their choice to deepen the impact of their work.
The work of the 2016 class of Angels ranges from supporting Louisiana’s foster children to community development and education. And while each has had a profound effect on the lives of children, he or she started out by making a simple decision to do good for just one child – an important theme to the Angel Award.
“Each of our Angels began their work by making the courageous decision to do something simple to help a child. Their work simply grew from there,” says Foundation president Michael Tipton. “We hold these people up because we want to show everyone how everyday goodness takes hold and spreads in a way that completely changes the future for our children.”
