TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 29, 2016) - Post Foods announces the winner of the nation-wide Search for Goodness. Port Alberni, BC resident Angel Magnussen has been selected as the winner for her selfless commitment to helping make the lives of children impacted by medical illness better.
Angel is an incredibly accomplished young woman, who is dedicated to helping sick kids. At a young age, she created Hugginz by Angel, a non-profit organization, that provides hand-sewn blankets, pillows and other items for critically ill and special needs children. Through Hugginz, she also raises money for charities and families across Canada. Her mission is to promote well-being and relieve distress for children who are suffering.
"We know Canada is filled with people who make our communities, big and small, better places to live," says David Bagozzi, VP Marketing, Post Foods Canada Inc. "Angel's commitment to helping children in-need started when she was young and she continues to be dedicated to helping as many children as she can. She is truly inspiring and she embodies the goodness we want to recognize in the Post Search for Goodness."
The nation-wide Post Search for Goodness program launched in May and Canadians had until July 25th to nominate, in 150 words or less, an individual or a team of up to three people who goes above and beyond in their community. As nominations started coming in, people were able to vote until July 31st for their favourite story. With more than 460 nominations and 232,920 total votes, the 10 nominees with the most votes moved on to the finalist category and the winner was selected by a panel of judges at Post Foods Canada Inc.
