A leadership award for true gentlemen
Josh Zabar is one of the winners of the 2013 Leaders Award presented by the popular men's magazine GQ, or Gentlemen's Quarterly. The annual award is meant to raise awareness for the issues essential to modern men.
On top of the honour and glamour that go with it, the award entitles the winners to a hefty sum of prize money. However, with the generosity of all true gentlemen, the winners will not keep the money to themselves but pay it forward to their favourite charities. Since the launch of the initiative in 2007, the Award has thus generated over $3.5 million for nearly 40 charities.
And the donation goes to . . . .
This year, Josh Zabar won the award for his dedicated work in running the Summit, an events- and community-focused organization. Summit's mission is to 'address global issues, support artistic achievement, and build community in an effort to make our world a more joyful place.' In an intriguing move this April, the Summit purchased Utah's Powder Mountain, North America's largest ski resort, with the intention of setting up a permanent community of innovation called Summit Eden. An audacious project worthy of the most dauntless agents of change.
And Josh's winner's choice, as one of the leaders of 2013? It was most clear cut and simple:
''My donation as a winner of the 2013 Leaders Award is being made to the David Lynch Foundation, to support their efforts teaching veterans and at-risk youth Transcendental Meditation—the gift that keeps on giving.''
