Lynda Doughty, Founder and Executive Director of Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME), was recently honored as a 2021 CNN Hero, woo hoo! This means MMoME is in the running for a major CNN award with a cash grant.

To see what they do… visit the client profile we published in 2019. And, visit the CNN profile on why they named Lynda Doughty a CNN Hero (it’s wonderful).

MMoMELynda posted the following note on the MMoME site “Along with the great honor of being internationally recognized for world-changing work, this nomination puts Marine Mammals of Maine in the running as a top-ten hero to receive $10,000. If we make the top 10, MMoME would be eligible for the Hero of the Year award, receiving $100,000 to continue our mission.” (CNN will announce its Hero of the Year on December 13, 2021).

CNN Heroes has created a GoFundMe to support MMoME to help this much-deserved organization reach the goal of $50,000.
