CommonKindness and Cabot Creamery Cooperative Launch "Community Celebrity Award" Contest to Honor Community Heroes

Winners Will Receive Free Caribbean Cruise on Celebrity Cruises

BIG INDIAN, NY--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - CommonKindness.com today launched its "Community Celebrity Award" contest in partnership with Cabot Creamery Cooperative, the family-farmer-owned producer of the cheddar cheese voted "World's Best," and Celebrity Cruises.

Nominate your favorite 'community celebrity' at www.CommonKindness.com to win an all-expense 5-night cruise in the Caribbean!

The contest will honor REAL celebrities in everyday life who improve their communities with little thought of personal recognition. The reward usually resides in the good work they do, not in the recognition they receive. However, these shining stars should be applauded for their selfless service!

The contest will award 7 individuals a cruise, including airfare for themselves and guest, onboard a Celebrity Cruise ship. Valued at approximately $3,244, the cruise is scheduled for January 2010. Nominations are being accepted at CommonKindness.com through 11:59 pm October 31st, 2009. Winners will be announced on November 12th, 2009.

"CommonKindness is committed to helping people make a difference in their communities, and we are thrilled to partner with Cabot Creamery Cooperative and Celebrity Cruises to honor these 'everyday heroes' who passionately set such a shining example," said Calandra Cruickshank, president of CommonKindness.
