This month KARE11 recognized Headwaters Relief Organization and founder Dr. Rebecca Thomley as an “Eleven Who Care” honoree. Since its inception in 1983, Eleven Who Care has introduced more than 300 initiatives and individuals making a difference in their community.

The following piece aired as part of a KARE11 special on 2013 Eleven Who Care honorees.

On Saturday, October 26, 2013 KARE11’s Belinda Jensen interviewed Dr. Rebecca Thomley and Kari Reinhart about Headwaters Relief and its work in New Orleans, Haiti, Colorado and other areas affected by disaster.

This year’s group of Eleven Who Care honorees serves a wide range of organizations, each one helping to make their community a better place to live. In addition to sharing inspiring stories, this year Eleven Who Care will incorporate specific opportunities for community members to get involved in volunteer opportunities. Community members throughout the year submit nominations for the Eleven Who Care award. Eleven Who Care is presented in partnership with KARE11 and 3M.
