We would like to send our most heartfelt congratulations to Crystal of Diamonds on the Street, the winner of Our Better World’s Good Story of the Year 2014.
Crystal’s mission is to empower at-risk youths through music and storytelling. We’re sure her and her team will be thrilled at winning this competition and excited at this opportunity to strengthen their mission with the $10,000.
Well done Crystal!
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted for us. As a small social enterprise in the early stages of our women empowerment mission, we were honoured to have been recognised amongst the other fantastic initiatives in the competition.
Between them, the 12 shortlisted videos received 36,860 votes, and 203,800 views throughout December! A lot of voters also shared the campaign across Facebook and Twitter using #OBWStories and by doing this, have raised awareness of Our Better World and the amazing stories they feature and promote.
Here’s to 2015 and a year filled with even more inspirational people, projects and stories!
