LOOK FOR THE GOOD
LEARN ABOUT MARGARET WORTHEN, THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THIS AWARD
The Look for the Good Hero Award was created in memory of Margaret Worthen, who died nine years after she had a stroke. With severe limitations on her mobility and speech after the stroke, Margaret was only able to say seven words during those nine years, two of which were "thank you."
2017 HERO: MARCUS SANCHEZ
With both parents incarcerated by the time he was three, Marcus is forever grateful to his Aunt Patrice who took him in and has cared for him ever since. He says, "There is hope for your future. Even if you had a rough start, that doesn't mean you have to have a rough ending."
2015 HERO: GABBY MATTEIS
Shortly after Gabby participated in the Look for the Good Project, her father committed suicide. Struggling to cope with her loss, Gabby decided to make bracelets to raise money for suicide prevention. After selling these in her school, she presented this money to the Look for the Good Project so that we could share her message with InterCommunity, a mental health clinic, to help patients in addiction recovery.

After learning about the Look for the Good Project in 2014, Drew Hess gave up a spot on "The Bachelorette" so that he could photograph people in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon, the salt flats of Bolivia, and atop a 19,000 foot mountain... all to help make this book!
