We are thankful for all of the passionate story tellers who contribute inspiring art, music, films and essays celebrating their own personal heroes with our global learning community . The MY HERO stories teach us important lessons; we see in their light, the possibilities that we each have to explore, create and grow. Over time. our team has had the opportunity to see, first hand, the powerful ripples one person can make…we are so grateful to all those who help shine a light for a brighter tomorrow.”
Board member, Mark Cavanagh shared his thoughts about the MY HERO web site and project:
"The MY HERO Project is the website...but it is bigger and more powerful than that because it is an idea for the world, to make it a better place and infuse civilization with understanding and hope. It takes the form of a website with extensions into classrooms and communities, but the idea is broad and open-ended as to the forms it can take. What is the idea? Our stories matter, our sources of inspiration matter, and sharing examples of the human spirit rising to challenges reinforces the belief that we can too. It is a website and educational offerings, book and films and art, meetings and festivals and social media, but the idea transcends the specifics to be a rallying cry for hope in the human spirit."
MY HERO Project board member, Linda Kahn, attended the award ceremony in New York City and accepted the award on behalf of MY HERO.
