People magazine is in the midst of its Readers' Choice Hero Campaign. The campaign identifies nine inspirational stories that were featured in People this year, and gives the public a chance to vote for their favorite. If you've got a minute, check it out; the campaign ends Friday, Oct. 8. These are some awe-inspiring stories about some pretty amazing folks. Many of their stories involve helping children and young people, and one even features an outstanding charter school leader...our very own Tim King of Urban Prep Charter Academy in Chicago.
Of course, we can't tell you how to vote (we would NEVER do that at the CharterBlog, since we're non-partisan!), but we do hope you'll vote for someone. Their causes are all very compelling and worthy, and the cash award will help the winner further his or her work. We've got our favorite, and we sure hope he wins.
