(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Santa Monica, CA - KooDooZ Inc, announced today it has teamed with the White House to become a Certifying Organization for the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD, a national program recognizing Americans who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service. As a Certifying Organization for the Award, KooDooZ is responsible for verifying service hours, nominating potential recipients and delivering the Award.

Established in 2003, the Award was created by President George W. Bush to give presidential recognition to individuals, families and groups who meet requirements for volunteer service, measured by the number of service hours performed over 12-months. 

“Young activists have long been the vehicle for change in this country,” said KooDooZ Founder, Lee Fox. “Having the ability to certify KooDooZ users will further shape KDZ as agents of change in the global world and that will in turn lead to more youth empowerment opportunities.”   “Even if you have never volunteered before, the Award is within your reach,” KooDooZ Community Outreach Coordinator Tara Treffry said. “There are so many ways to strengthen our nation, every hour dedicated to a cause makes a difference in the lives of others around you, as well as your own.”   For more information about volunteering through KooDooZ, contact Tara Treffry, Community Outreach Coordinator, at ttreffry@KooDooZ.com or 310.883.2241.   For more information on the PRESIDENT’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD, visit www.presidential serviceawards.gov or call 866.545.5307.   About KooDooZ Inc.
