Tom J. Kennedy presents the Winged Lion Award to Shirazdeen Adam Shah
Launched in 2005, the Winged Lion Awards for 2012 were
presented to the winners during the 8th year for UsuryFree Week,
scheduled from November 13th to 19th. It was a milestone year for the Winged Lion
Awards as there were winners in four different countries: Canada, USA,
Philippines and Malaysia.
Indeed, 2012 was a banner year for active, usuryfre
creatives all around the world and it appears that the exchange tool of a
usuryfree time currency will become the alternative usuryfree currency of
choice as we progress into this 21st Century.
UsuryFree creatives celebrated 8 years of innovative
leadership in search of workable and proven models of alternative currencies
that can be used to negotiate trades/exchanges with – locavores – consumers who
are ready and willing to shop locally and thereby make a firm commitment to
change the way they spend their money.
Usuryfree creative are willing to step outside of their
former “hassle-free zones” and take a leadership role to inspire others to
pursue the usuryfree lifestyle. Nominees for the Winged Lion Awards open doors
that were previously closed and walk through them bringing joy to those who
dare to taste the experience of living the usuryfree lifestyle.
The recognition of the winners of the Winged Lion Awards is
important because their brave actions motivate and inspire others. The values
and actions modeled by the winners of the Winged Lion Awards prove that they are
committed to the belief that ‘Life Without Usury” will be experienced once
again in this 21st Century.
We still have a long road to travel BUT we have started the
journey towards usuryfree living.
Here are the winners of the Winged Lion Awards for 2012 - Congratulations to these active usury free creatives ( some individuals and some groups or organizations) whose accomplishments in 2012 earned them a Winged Lion Award.
