The Carey Brothers have supported Rebuilding Together for over 20 years and have continually contributed our time, tools, funds and media assets to this wonderful organization. Rebuilding Together doesn’t give handouts. They help individuals who have worked their whole lives, paid for their homes, sent their children to college and then, on fixed incomes, have become poverty stricken by inflation. To support this wonderful organization we are partnering with Rebuilding Together and WD 40 to promote the “Tradesperson of the Year Award 2012”.

We know that our listeners and readers have a special place in their heart for the charity of their choice and we want to applaud those of you who work so hard to make your community, your state and our nation; a better place to live. We may not know your name, but someone knows your work is important. That’s why you should nominate a person you know that gives back to their community as Tradesperson of the Year! One day you may need a helping hand, be a good neighbor and give a hand to your cause.

In this month’s issue you will find the WD-40 Rebuilding Together Tradesperson of the Year nomination page under contests and promotions. The award, as you will read, is given to an individual who was nominated for giving back to his community. I’m sure you know someone that deserves the award, nominate them today, before nominations close January 20, 2012.
