Vote for “Humanitarian of the Year!”

Since Stalking the Belle Époque began in July, I’ve highlighted the lives and careers of eighteen exceptional people whose humanitarian efforts have made a tremendous difference in the lives of their fellow humans as well as in the lives of animals. Each of these eighteen people has contributed tirelessly to a variety of causes.

Now, it’s your chance to decide who will be Stalking the Belle Époque’s first annual “Humanitarian of the Year.” To vote, select the name of your choice from the poll labeled “Humanitarian of the Year” in the right-hand navigation bar (below the Blog Archive). While you’re there, you might also like to vote for “Person of the Year.” Voting ends on December 12, 2010.

The winner will receive special recognition for his or her contributions.

The nominees are:

Fran Drescher—actress, author, activist, talk show host
Betty White—actress, animal rights activist
Niecy Nash—television personality, actress
Bobbie Eakes—singer, actress
