When we decided to create a global humanitarian Prize, we looked for inspiration at the stories of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide. One story was particularly moving, Aurora Mardiganian was a young girl who lived through horrors of the Genocide - forced to witness and experience terrible acts, but was then able to escape; making an epic journey to build a new life in America.

Read more of Aurora's story and the 100 LIVES initiative on our website: http://www.100lives.com

100 LIVES has a dual purpose: to celebrate those who helped Armenians in need one hundred years ago and to continue in their spirit by supporting people and organizations that keep the legacy of gratitude alive.
