4. Custom Goody Awards: Brands can sponsor a custom Goody Award as part of a cause marketing campaign.
5. Golden Goody Awards: These lifetime achievement awards can be part of a cause marketing campaign, and are usually presented at a live event. Anyone can nominate someone for a Golden Goody Award. The Goody Awards Advisory Board reviews the nominations and selects winners.
The Golden Goody Award is our top humanitarian award given about 6 times per year as part of cause marketing campaigns. The Goody Awards builds campaigns (PR, Marketing, Social Media and more) to recognize someone doing good in the space, and partners with brand sponsors, celebrities and causes for these Special Awards.
This award has been presented to United Nations Goodwill Ambassador Ian Somerhalder who inspires youth to change the world and join the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, Autistic Teen Animator Dani Bowman who has taught 250 autistic children how to do animation and illustrated 2 anti-bully books (photo to the left), Louie Psihoyos, Director of “The Cove”, Erica Greve, Unlikely Heroes Founder and more.

Liz H Kelly created the Goody Awards™ to give you an easy way to recognize good thru online and offline awards. As CEO/Founder, she’s helped build companies and recognition programs for Fox Interactive Media/MySpace, Paramount Pictures, Sprint PCS office, and interactive startups. Liz is currently on the Advisory Board of Net Impact LA and Global Girl Media.
Liz knew she wanted to change the world at 9 years old when she went to a summer camp where the top awards were for leaders focused on teamwork, giving back and making the camp a better place versus the best tennis player. Liz was later inspired to move forward with the Goody Awards after Dalai Lama meetings in Los Angeles in 2006. She is active in the community, has been on social good panels for Social Media Week LA, Silicon Beach, Digital Hollywood, and teaches social media at UCLA Extension. She has put together a global Advisory Board to support all this good!
Our Goody PR… company manages the Marketing, PR and Social Media tied to these cause marketing campaigns for brand sponsors. We’d love to hear from anyone interested in developing a campaign or learning about our sponsorship opportunities.
