MAKERS, a video platform from AOL and PBS honouring
trailblazing women, is working together with Simple Skincare to find what they
are calling “NextMAKERS.” Women from around the country will be nominated for
their outstanding roles as leaders and role models in their towns, and six
remarkable women from the nominees will then be selected to share their stories
online. Short videos will be made of
each of the finalists and will appear on MAKERS.com, alongside
heroes that are regularly featured in the press, such as Supreme Court
Justices, athletes, entertainers and more.
Along with a fabulous feature to honour each of the women,
the winners will also receive a $10,000 grant from Simple Skincare in an effort
to support the winner in continuing to her provide for her community. The Next MAKERS
will also be flown to New York City to attend a special dinner held in their
It’s such a privilege to be able to share this initiative
with you and I do hope you will find a way to honour and support a special

Please join me in saying thank you to the women that have
helped shape our worlds. Nominate a woman in your life by submitting an
application for consideration at on MAKERS.com/NextMAKERS or Facebook.com/SimpleSkincare.
Entries can be submitted up to 12:00pm ET on September 27, 2012.
