Announcing the winners of the Spokeo Search Angel Awards!

Written by Vanessa March 20, 2013

Last fall, we announced our partnership with the Mixed Roots Foundation to launch the Spokeo Search Angel Awards. Shortly thereafter in November, we announced a call for nominations on behalf of deserving search angels. It’s been a very long awaited announcement, but today, we are elated to announce the five deserving winners of the Spokeo Search Angel Awards!

As our CEO, Ray aptly notes in our official press release, “we applaud the efforts of search angels everywhere, but are particularly proud of the ones we’re honoring today.”

These five search angels represent a diverse group of those touched by adoption. From adoptees, to birth mothers and adoptive parents, these five angels have gone beyond their own searches to continue to touch the lives of others daily and we are proud to support them in their work.

On April 12 at the American Adoption Congress National Conference, we’ll have the group together for a formal meet and greet and look forward to getting to know them further.

The five honorees have each received a cash grant as well as a premium enterprise Spokeo subscription.

Without further ado, we present to you the five Spokeo Search Angel Award Winners!

For additional information on each winner be sure to click on the name and view the extended winner bios.
