I am writing to introduce our “Women Doing Good” event that will be recognizing the work of Dian Ross. Dian single-handedly delivered 30,000 books to children of low income families and those devastated by Hurricane Katrina, offering them an opportunity to improve their lives through the gift of reading. Maybelline New York is honored to acknowledge her remarkable contributions through their Beauty of Education initiative.

SELF Magazine created the Women Doing Good initiative in 2008 to honor women who enrich their communities and the world by working to empower and enhance the lives of others. Dian will be receiving a national award and a $10,000 donation to help continue her work in her charity, First Book.

Dian is currently living in Diamondhead, Mississippi, and will be traveling to New York to receive her award on September 24, 2008. The Women Doing Good event will take place at Top of the Rock in New York City.

Hoda Kotb will be the ceremony’s special guest host. Kotb, co-host of NBC’s Today Show and four-time Emmy Award-winning journalist is also a breast cancer survivor and activist for prevention and treatment for all women.
