Desley Glover McKirdy Presented With RecognizeGood Legend Award

RecognizeGood honored Desley Glover McKirdy with the 78th RecognizeGood® Legend award in a presentation at Wonders & Worries (9101 Burnet Road, Suite 107, Austin TX 78758) beginning at 9:30am on Tuesday October 9, 2018. During this event, RecognizeGood made a $1,000 pay-it-forward donation to Wonders & Worries in Desley’s name.

Desley Glover McKirdy has a unique talent that she gives to help those in need. Several years ago she decided to start volunteering with Wonders & Worries, an Austin nonprofit that offers professional support services for children dealing with the loss of a parent. Desley hand sews personalized teddy bears out of clothing from the parent who passed away, for children to keep as a tangible, living memory of their mom or dad. With love, compassion, empathy and not a little bit of expert skill, Desley has created over one hundred bears that, for the children who receive them, are absolutely priceless.

As a 2018 Legend, Desley is now eligible to participate in RecognizeGood’s Say Thanks Austin campaign, an annual event which presents Central Texas with a unique opportunity to say “thank you” to a group of remarkable individuals who contribute their time and talents to our community. The participant with the most Thank You votes receives a pay-it-forward donation of $10,000 to the nonprofit of their choice.
