Secretary & Treasurer

Our board of directors are community leaders, dedicated to creating immediate and lasting growth for children who lost a first responder or healthcare worker to Covid-19.  Our work with partners is aimed at helping those children find comfort, success and happiness.  


Driven by gratitude for our own good fortune, our primary objective is to help children maintain strong mental health.


We have great admiration and respect for two charities, The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is the inspirational model we plan to emulate ... worldwide for Covid orphans, and the First Responders Children’s Foundation founded in the aftermath of 9/11 when over 800 children lost a first responder parent. 

Work From Home Open  Positions


AUGUST 31, 2021

A Microsoft survey of more than 30,000 global workers showed that 41% of workers were considering quitting or changing professions this year.  Full article is here.

The way Americans are working is changing. Many professionals and high-level employees find working at home saves time, is less stressful and family friendly.  It is from this talent pool we expect to find exceptional people for the following present and future full-time, work from anywhere positions.

Alternatively, top performing volunteers can demonstrate excellence and earn the opportunity to be considered for the following staff positions either now or in the future.  Equal Employment Opportunity asserts all people should have the right to work and advance on the bases of merit and ability, regardless of their race, sex, color, religion, disability, national origin, or age.  Bluebird Awards agrees.


Performance is our equal opportunity criteria. Volunteers are accepted into the Volunteer Registry without penetrating questions or face to face interviews. Once registered, all we know is your name, email address, location and a brief message.  Success is at the discretion of each volunteer. Obviously, a single misstep is cause for disassociating a volunteer.



Our president is the public face of Bluebird Awards. Duties include presentations to interested organizations, radio and television appearances, public speaking and maintaining a social media presence.
