Say Thanks, Austin is an annual event that presents the Austin area with a unique opportunity to say “thank you.” From January 4th through January 29th, get ready to show your gratitude!
Each year, RecognizeGood selects Legend award recipients who become eligible to participate in the Say Thanks, Austin campaign. Over the course of January, the community is able to say Thank You to each participant by voting. There are several voting methods including RecognizeGood.org, email, text, hand-written Thank You forms, and social media platforms. The participant with the most votes receives a pay-it-forward donation of $10,000 to the nonprofit organization of their choice. Most importantly, our community focuses attention on those who truly deserve it. We are all inspired to find ways to contribute!
This event allows us to honor a group of extraordinary community servants and literally “say thanks” for all the time and acts of good that they have given. It is during this Say Thanks Austin closing ceremony where campaign results are announced, donations are handed out, and we gather together to show appreciation one last time.
