Live every day with love not hatred and you will accomplish so much more in life.”

LIVINGSTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, March 25, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Michelle Charlesworth, distinguished reporter and co-anchor of WABC Eyewitness News on Saturday and Sunday Mornings, is receiving the 2024 Voice of Kindness Award from the Mark Schonwetter Holocaust Education Foundation (MSHEF) for her exceptional and unwavering support of the Foundation’s mission to teach anti-hate initiatives, respect, and kindness through Holocaust education.

Charlesworth’s impactful work is a shining example of how one individual can make a significant difference by fostering compassion and understanding. She used her voice as a powerful instrument for positive change, shedding light on the historical significance and enduring impact of the Holocaust.

“I am absolutely thrilled and humbled to be recognized by a group dedicated to first-hand experiential education about the Holocaust,” said Charlesworth. “I was honored to meet Mark Schonwetter years ago and to write about his story of surviving the Holocaust as a boy. What is amazing is that his story is also about hope, faith, family, and the kindness of strangers. Regular people willing to risk their lives for others facing immoral persecution.”

MSHEF will bestow this honor during their fourth annual Journey For The Living walk, May 5 at 11:30 am, at the Livingston New Jersey Oval. Walk attendees will have the unique opportunity to walk alongside Michelle Charlesworth and Mark Schonwetter, the Foundation’s namesake and Holocaust survivor, to raise crucial funds for Holocaust Education.
