Helping others has always been a part of most people’s New Year’s resolutions and Volvo has offered a way of helping them achieve such goal though its Volvo for Life Awards. The Volvo for Life Awards is a nationwide search for everyday heroes. Nearly 400,000 votes have already been cast in the voting which will end on February 4, 2007.

A panel of distinguished judges which includes Hank Aaron, Sen.
