How to Nominate a Site
Sites that win MUST Empower others to experience more healthy happiness and/or to suffer less emotional pain, they must entertain and last but not least; impress me with content, speed, appearance and navigation. No, I take that back. If they empower others to experience more healthy happiness and/or suffer less emotional pain, they don't have to be beautiful. And if you have a beautiful site and you have to stop and think about how it empowers people to suffer less... if it takes any kind of a stretch at all... don't apply. You won't get the award. To submit a site please click on the envelope below stating your name, e-mail address, URL and a clear explanation of how your site reduces unnecessary emotional suffering or increases healthy happiness.
Thank you for sharing this page with your friends.
