2012 SERVICE AWARD ANNOUNCED
We are pleased to announce that The National Association for Children of Alcoholics, UK (NACOA-UK – www.nacoa.org.uk) has been selected to receive NACoA's 2012 Meritorious Service Award which recognizes outstanding programming by a NACoA affiliate to raise public awareness of the needs of children of alcoholics (COAs) during Children of Alcoholics Week.
In making this award, we salute NACOA-UK for its powerful programming and effective outreach. We recognize its moving YouTube video to Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come" and the ongoing sale of the song – with talent donated by the artists – on iTunes. The sales help support NACOA-UK's important mission and its hotline for children of alcoholics in Great Britain. The award also recognizes the effectiveness of NACOA-UK's targeted website www.coaweek.org, including the celebrities from many fields in the UK bringing messages of hope and healing to COAs in their country and beyond. The video can be viewed from this site. Well done, NACOA-UK – for many previous years!
