Selecting the finalists from such a large pool of worthy applicants was an extremely difficult task, causing us to spend many hours reviewing applications, said Hilary Kaye, founder and president of HKA. But rather than exhausted, we were inspired and energized there are so many nonprofits doing such amazing work for our community. In the end, we chose eight nonprofits who are doing significant work and who we felt were truly enthusiastic about how HKA could benefit them in 2015.

The final selection will be made with help from a distinguished judges panel and from the general public, who will vote for their favorite video.

Asked how Locally PRoud came about, Kaye explained that as her firm reached its 30th year, she felt tremendous gratitude for HKAs success in business and to all who have contributed to the longevity of the agency. Weve touched many lives and Im proud of this. But Im also very grateful for being able to run a company that I love for 30 years, she said.

Kaye added, We have always been philanthropic, and we particularly love connecting our for-profit clients with those in the nonprofit world. But because this year is extra special, we decided to truly roll up our PR sleeves and help one smaller, very deserving organization communicate and expand its good work.

Online voting will continue through Oct. 31 and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, Dec. 2, known as Giving Tuesday. Work for the nonprofit winner will begin in January 2015.
