The Courage Certificate goes out to those who have shown outstanding courage while fighting some of the battles that life brings.

This cannot be applied for, it is given by our Judges descretion.

Judges Descretion:

This Certificate is given to sites by our Judges descretion.

Sites they consider “Super Outstanding” that shines above the rest, with nice design but most important “The Content”.

If you think that is your site, then by all means be sure and apply for the “Certificate”.
