Multiple Births Canada has asked that we share with our chapter that they have extended the deadline for the Making a Difference Awards Nominations to August 15th, 2012
Please see the Facebook message below from Kimberley with the request.
For those of you not familiar with the Awards, they are awards that are handed out annually from MBC to many people within our community for the service they have given to their communities, organizations or individuals.  The Local, National and International awards were created for the express purpose of acknowledging our "unsung heroes". All the volunteers – at every level - donate their energies and resources, often for many years, without thought of reward or compensation. The Making a Difference Awards is our way of thanking them for their contributions to the multiple-birth community.

Check out Making A Difference on the MBC website and read about all the deserving past MADA winners, including detailed articles and photos.


LOCAL AWARD - Is there someone in your chapter or community who has "gone beyond the call of duty"?


NATIONAL AWARD - Is there someone at the National level who has inspired you or your chapter?


INTERNATIONAL AWARD - Is there someone at the International level who helps to ensure the professionalism of Multiple Births Canada or is working in an area that has significant impact on our Canadian families?


MEDIA AWARD - Is there a media outlet or journalist that went above and beyond over the last year to create awareness for multiple-birth issues, your chapter or for MBC?


DIONNE AWARD - Do you know of an ADULT multiple(s) who has "made a difference" on behalf of the multiple-birth community?


CORPORATE AWARD - Is there a business professional or company that has made a significant contribution to the well-being of multiple birth families?


The recipients of these awards will be honoured at the 2012 MBC Annual General Meeting and Retreat in September, and will receive an engraved plaque and certificate. You do not need to attend to nominate or receive this award. We want lots of nominations this year, so give it some thought and send in those nomination forms!


Remember: without volunteers, our local chapters and Multiple Births Canada would never be able to touch as many lives. Let's recognize those people who "Make a Difference"!


Please email Theresa, Making a Difference Chair at

Let me know if you have any questions,
