2012 Susan B. Anthony Award Winner
The Susan B Anthony Award 2012 was presented to our Happy Charity Founder Shelley Sykes. Business Professional Women (BPW) of Hollywood has been presenting their Susan B. Anthony Award since 1885 to exceptional women for their outstanding achievements. It’s awarded in the spirit of Miss Anthony: “Failure is Impossible!” Susan B Anthony was a Journalist, Author & Speaker and one of the first women to actively advocate for the women’s vote and equality for men & women. She was known for her outspoken views and was often invited to speak at the White House on women’s suffrage. She died before the vote was given to USA women. In 1980 the US Government created a $1 coin with her head on the coin to commemorate Susan B Anthony being a huge part of Women’s History Month, which is also the anniversary of BPW Hollywood.
The Susan B Anthony Award is given each March, during Women’s History Month, which is also the anniversary of BPW Hollywood (Business & Professional Women). Dr Shelley Sykes is the 2012 award recipient, because she helped a lot of LA’s Kids with her first fundraiser in the USA. Shelley loved receiving her Susan B Anthony Coin & plaque! She is also a TV Director, Award Winning Author, Speaker & Philanthropist. Like Susan B Anthony; Shelley believes “anything is possible”. Shelley’s son was born blind and has Cerebral Palsy. She founded the HappyCharity.org, Global Happiness Day & the Global Happiness Leadership Academy in Australia in 2005 and now here in America, hosting the ‘Happiness in Hollywood Awards’. BPW Hollywood Members are delighted to align with this Happy Charity.
