Founders of World of Children Award Recognized as Most Inspiring Power Couple
Date:11/4/2013

New York (PRWEB) November 04, 2013

Harry Leibowitz and Kay Isaacson-Leibowitz, Co-Founders of World of Children Award (http://www.worldofchildren.org), are one of America’s Top Five Inspiring Power Couples, according to the Huffington Post. Couples were chosen for their commitment to “working together to create change.”

Harry and Kay, two retired senior executives turned philanthropists, were included because of their dedication to vulnerable children. They founded World of Children Award 16 years ago to honor and elevate the work of extraordinary individuals serving vulnerable children worldwide. Bill and Melinda Gates, Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio and his wife, Chirlane McCray, as well as billionaire John Arnold as his wife, Laura, were also included on the list.

Harry and Kay – both residents of Rancho Santa Fe in California – will travel to New York City this week to host the 2013 World of Children Awards Ceremony on November 7, 2013. There, they will honor six extraordinary heroes who are transforming the lives of vulnerable children worldwide.

“We are deeply inspired by the remarkable contributions our Honorees have made to changing the trajectory of children’s lives for the better,” Harry said.

Since 1998, World of Children Award has granted more than $5 million in cash grants and program support to 100 Honorees who are the driving force behind programs serving children in more than 140 countries.

“Sustainable, practical giving to real life heroes, that’s how we operate,” said actress Stephanie March, celebrity ambassador for World of Children Award. “We are working to create a world that no longer needs our services. Until such a time comes, World of Children Award will continue to elevate those in the field.”

On November 7, World of Children Award will present one Health Award, one Humanitarian Award, two Youth Awards, one non-monetary Advocacy Award, and one Alumni Award.
