Red Carpet Fly had the privilege of attending The World of Children Award Gala and it truly was an extraordinary night and experience. The World of Children organization is a unique non-profit that identifies effective child advocates that have created proven, sustainable programs for children, and awards grants to advance their work. What makes this organization so different from other non-profits that donate money, is that once The World of Children have picked an organization, they have an independent 3rd party investigate the nominated organization to ensure that they are sustainable and that the money is actually getting to the children in need; avoiding scams and the money falling into the wrong hands.
The three alumni honorees that received awards, are truly remarkable individuals. Not only have they been beacons of hope in their communities and have been so integral in saving the lives of so many disadvantage children, but they are trail blazers in their respective fields.
