A while back Dr. Bwelle was nominated as a CNN Hero with a possibility of being selected as one of the top 10 Heroes and potentially even a shot of being voted CNN Hero of the Year. Well, we are very excited to announce that Dr. Bwelle earned a place as one of CNN’s top 10 Heroes and is currently in the running for Hero of the Year! As one of the top 10, Dr. Bwelle and Ascovime have been awarded $50,000 and if he ends up being chosen as the Hero of the Year he will receive an additional donation of $250,000. This would be an enormous help for Ascovime which runs on YOUR donations and part of Dr. Bwelle’s humble salary. This is a wonderful opportunity for Ascovime (and Dr. Bwelle) to get the recognition and the support that it needs to deliver free healthcare to rural populations in Cameroon.
Here’s where you can help – the Hero of the Year is chosen by caring individuals like you. All you have to do is go to this site: http://heroes.cnn.com/ and vote for Dr. Bwelle. Better yet, set this webpage as one of your homepages to remind you to vote daily. You don’t have to sign up for anything and again you can vote every single day(from multiple accounts and from Facebook)! This is a perfect way to give a tiny amount of your time to make a huge difference and it won’t cost a thing so please, take a moment every day to vote for Dr. Bwelle and, if you feel so inclined, tell your friends and family to vote too! Results will be posted as soon as voting ends. Thank you so much!
