Bellingham, Whatcom County Local News | Bellingham Herald

Bellingham, Whatcom County Local News | Bellingham Herald: "The award, in its first year, will give $10,000 to two public charities, one supported by a public figure and the other a 'hometown hero' featured on the 'NBC Nightly News' series, 'Making a Difference.' Giving Anonymously was featured in August and September, and those segments were so popular the charity garnered a nomination.

The charity enables donors to give money to friends, family or strangers anonymously, so recipients don't feel indebted for the donation.

'American people are already very generous,' Thompson said. 'What they're excited about is that we're facilitating something that is already in their hearts.'"
