The Rare Life Award Nomination:

Award-winning author and child abuse advocate Donna Kshir has been nominated for the Rare Life Award 2010. Voting takes place online, and anyone may cast a vote for her. The Rare Life Award nominees are heroic, show courage, leadership, dedication, devotion, character, survival skills and inspire others to make a difference. Some nominees make an impact globally and others in their own little corner of the world, but all nominees have one thing in common. They lead rare lives.

Kshir was nominated by author, radio talk show host and Canada Regional Director of Dreamcatchers for Abused Children, Laurie Ann Smith of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

"Donna Kshir is my hero and she leads a very 'Rare Life,'" Smith wrote. "Donna and I met a year ago and she has impacted my life and the lives of everyone she meets in so many ways. Anyone who meets Donna or happens to, by some circumstance, become acquainted with Donna is a changed person.

"She has the 'Rare' gift of making people feel special, helping people see their own gifts and talents, and Donna always puts others ahead of herself which is very 'Rare' in this world.

"Donna Kshir is a published author. She has written and co-authored several books to promote awareness and education regarding the issues of domestic violence and abuse and child abuse. Her new focus and passion is writing books for teens that will allow them to understand the dangers of teen dating violence... and help them know that there is help available and to reach out and get help if they are in an abusive relationship.

"Donna Kshir is also the president of Dreamcatchers For Abused Children. Donna is a mother, a wife and an advocate, speaking out against child abuse and standing up to protect children's rights.

"I truly believe that Donna Kshir leads a 'Rare Life' and deserves to be acknowledged and noticed for all she does to help so many people every day. Donna has not only become like a sister to me, she has encouraged me to go beyond what I perceived my own capabilities to be, and encouraged me to become a writer.

"Donna has given so much to everyone she knows, in her own family, her community, and nationally with Dreamcatchers For Abused Children, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote awareness and education to prevent and stop child abuse.

"Donna spends hours volunteering with the organization and works tirelessly to try and secure funding for Dreamcatchers For Abused Children which would aid in our ability to get the programs started to make even more of a difference in the lives of children nationwide, North America-wide and worldwide!

"Donna gives of herself, her talents, her gifts and abilities to make this world a better place for everyone, and Donna Kshir is my hero and truly leads a 'Rare Life.' May we all strive to be more like her."

Award winners will receive a reception in their honor, and a $10,000 donation will be made to the charity of their choice.

The Rare Life Award is sponsored by Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey.
