Handy Dad Can Win $30,000 for their Community

The Sears Blue Tool Crew, with the help of Ty Pennington, announces the next “Do It Together” (DIT) initiative – the second annual “Unsung Heroes: Dads Making a Difference” Father’s Day contest. Recognizing dads nationwide who use their tools to do good works for their communities, the Sears Blue Tool Crew contest is seeking entries that spotlight the work of fathers who serve as exemplary role models, and you can vote to help select the winner of a grand prize worth $30,000 for use in the community. The “Dads Making a Difference” contest is one of many programs within the Sears Blue Tool Crew’s “Do It Together” campaign, which celebrates unsung heroes who use their tools and talents together for the greater good of the community. Ty Pennington, Sears spokesperson said about the contest:
Last year’s ‘Dads Making a Difference’ contest winner, Charlie Muller, converted a run-down building into a center to feed children living below poverty levels in Albany, N.Y. I am excited to be working with the Sears Blue Tool Crew to hear more inspirational stories this year and encourage people to nominate deserving dads.
In addition to the toolbox for Rebuilding Together, DIT Traveling Toolboxes will be criss-crossing the country to support individuals doing great things who may not have access to the tools and materials to get the job done right. The toolboxes will be fully stocked with tools and a video camera to document the project.

Nominate a Dad Who is Making a Difference

the Sears Blue Tool Crew is issuing a call for nominations for all dads who are actively involved in community-oriented projects. You still have time to nominate a dad who is making a difference! Nominate until June 10. Entries require a brief 250-word-or-less essay and a photo. A panel of judges, including Ty Pennington, will select 10 finalists and America’s vote will decide which nominee will receive a special visit from the Sears Blue Tool Crew to help bring a needy or ongoing project to life. Each finalist will receive tools and resources from the Sears Blue Tool Crew, while the grand prize winner will receive $30,000 in services and assistance from the Sears Blue Tool Crew to help further advance his community work. Nominations should focus on how the deserving dad uses his tools and talents for the benefit of a project in his hometown. Entries will be accepted until June 10, and people can vote for their favorite after that. Official contest rules are available at www.Facebook.com/SearsBlueToolCrew under the ‘Dads Making a Difference’ application. The grand prize winner will be announced on Facebook on July 11.
