Just watched CNN’s Heroes Awards, did you?

I was riveted to the TV during the awards and was so disappointed that it was a contest, like the academy awards, which it mimicked. I didn't realize that until the end.

I loved that that the woman who won posed a challenge to others to help raise the money to give every one the $100,000 award, as they all deserved it. What a wonderful woman she was to think on feet that way.

I am hoping that some of those stars in the audience or wealthy viewers will pick up the some of those causes and do just that.

If you have some extra money to donate this year, check out CNN's Heroes awards, some really deserving projects out there.
