If you like us on Facebook

, you may already know about the 5-hour ENERGY® Helps Amazing People
program. But starting today, we're proud to announce that our program is being launched nationally! Created by 5-hour ENERGY®'s founder Manoj
Bhargava, the Amazing People program recognizes outstanding Americans who, despite their own challenges, give their time and energy to make the lives of others better. Those who are selected receive $50,000 and are showcased in a weekly online video series promoted on YouTube and Facebook to give their organizations and efforts exposure.
The 5-hour ENERGY® Helps Amazing People program all began with a question from Bhargava: "Why only pay celebrities or athletes? Why not give to the real heroes?" He continues, "5-hour ENERGY® has always been about helping hard working people, and the Amazing People program takes this further by making a significant difference in the lives of those who are working through difficult circumstances."
5-hour ENERGY® Helps Amazing People has featured more than 20 people from across the country, each of them working for a cause close to their heart. Our program has donated over $1 million to recipients including a victim of gang violence who provides a safe haven for teenagers in the most dangerous section of New Orleans; a mother with disabled sons who volunteers tirelessly for Easter Seals; a widow who has dedicated her life to taking in orphans in need; a former Bollywood actress who spent her life savings to help victims of domestic violence in Miami; a wildfire victim from Colorado Springs who lost her home yet continues to rescue puppies from mills; an Iraq War veteran with PTSD who assists those returning from service with getting back on their feet; among many others.
We love sharing these inspiring stories, which is why we are backing the program with a full-scale advertising campaign that starts today and continues through the end of the year! Be sure to stay tuned for more amazing stories of amazing people. For more information about the 5-hour ENERGY® Helps Amazing People program, visit http://www.5hourhelps.com
