Kostas Giannopoulos, Athens Greece. Winning Benefactor: Is the founder of NGO “The Smile of the Child”, which was the brainchild of his son, Andreas Giannopoulos, aged 10, following his death from cancer.  “All the children are the same, wherever they live, and they need a smile (hamogelo). Let’s unite all together to make it possible,” Andreas had written in his journal, spear-heading the growth of an organization that has revolutionized children’s rights in Greece with everything from shelters for homeless children, assistance to ill children, help lines to participation in the “Amber Alert” system for Missing Children. For the last 15 years, Giannopoulos has held true to a promise he made to his dying child regarding a better world for children. By Mary Sinanidis

Toni Evangelopoulou, Psychologist, Athens Greece. Winning Benefactor: Toni developed the Centre of Audio-Psycho-Phonology in Greece that employs the Tomatis Methos developed by French ear, throat and nose specialist Dr. Alfred Tomatis, famous for his groundbreaking work on audio-psycho-phonology and his trailblazing discovery that listening problems are the root-cause of many other learning difficulties. The Tomatis Method, a non-invasive program of sound stimulation, offers benefits for those suffering from depression, low self-esteem, attention deficit disorders (including ADD and ADHD), memory lapses, tone deafness, stress, dyslexia, stuttering, music atonality, vertigo, as well as more serious problems like multiple sclerosis, autism and Alzheimer’s. The program stimulates the ear and develops an inner motivation to listen. By Mary Sinanidis
