OUR GOAL: WE ILLUMINATE selfless individuals who go to extraordinary lengths for others in order to inspire community citizenship, promote volunteerism and show gratitude for the good being done all around us daily.
Sometimes a simple thank you isn’t enough, and the RecognizeGood Legends program highlights those amazing individuals who go above and beyond for others. Since its inception in 2010, the RecognizeGood Legend award has been presented nine times each year. Culminating each year in a massive gratitude campaign, the Legend award and accompanying Say Thanks, Austin campaign have produced hundreds of thousands of acts of gratitude from the Central Texas community for these individuals who truly put service above self and inspire us all.
