Tim McGraw is ready to honor amazing neighbors from around the country.
On Wednesday, Nextdoor, the app that helps you keep track of people and things going on around your neighborhood, announced the full list of well-known judges that are joining them for the first-ever Nextdoor 100, a celebration of super amazing, supportive, surprising, creative, compassionate, never-not-there-when-you-need-them neighbors across America.
Over the next month and a half, Tim McGraw; comedy icon, actor and philanthropist, Cedric the Entertainer; Olympic gold medalist, FIFA Women’s World Cup champion, coach and broadcaster, Brandi Chastain; founder of Operation: HOPE, John Hope Bryant; author and Editor-in-chief of Woman’s Day, Meaghan Murphy; veteran journalist and founder of URL media, S. Mitra Kalita; and Maribel Perez Wadsworth, President of News at Gannett Media and Publisher of USA TODAY will collaborate to select the inaugural Nextdoor 100 honorees.
“At Nextdoor, we know how important it is to celebrate the people who make our neighborhoods great: the neighbors who we lean on for humor, support, and kindness in good and bad times and who make us feel like we belong. We see every day on our platform how meaningful it is to connect and be there for each other both online and in real life,” said Maryam Banikarim, Head of Marketing at Nextdoor. “So we are thrilled to partner with these inspiring, accomplished judges to celebrate these neighbors – because every single one of them knows how important amazing neighbors are to our well being individually and as a community.”
Until May 8th, people can go to Nenextdoor100.com to nominate neighbors they think are extra special with the announcement of the final 100 honorees on May 23rd. Already, more than 14,000 nominations have been received from neighbors eager to spotlight those in their communities who make it a kinder, better place.
