What are Everyday Heroes?
The Everyday Hero, is the person who smiles at you on an off day. It is the war veteran fighting for freedom and equality for all. As well, it's your friend, parent, or mentor sacrificing for your happiness. The Everyday Hero is within every single human being on this planet, and is expressed by simple, ordinary actions. Heroes do simple acts; of kindness, courage, and love. In a letter released in April 2015, Albert Einstein writes life is a flow of love, your participation is requested. Our world needs more heroes. It is our job to bring out the hero that lives inside of each of us, making this world a better place.
Everyday Heroes of AUTISM:
Families of kids with autism are true Everyday Heroes.
We take communication for granted, not knowing what a challenge it is for these kids with autism and their Families. Thanks to organizations like AIM (Autism In Mind), parents and their kids get IBI (Intensive Behavioural Intervention) and gain coping skills. These treatments result in happier children who learn to express themselves to get their needs met. Hope is restored. We met these Families at Bean Around the World- Markham at their second annual Fundraiser for Autism. It was a privilege.
Get Involved. Share your Hero story.
Heroes are found everywhere, could be you, and you may not even know it. Go ahead, send us a message, share your thoughts, think about who is the hero in your life and what being a hero means to you. With this thinking comes powerful action, and by sharing your experiences, thoughts, and stories, you never know who's life you may save.
About Our Movement
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and are found everywhere. We hope to inspire you to share your heroes with us, and want to know why we need heroes in the world. As Oscar Wilde once said, “are you ready to stand up and be a hero?,” and that is what we want you to think about. We hope you help us to spread goodness, love, kind acts, because we feel that’s what the world needs.
You can help to make the world a better place.
The hero gene can be activated in all of us. You can activate your own hero gene by nominating someone who you believe is a hero. It can be anyone, a parent, a stranger, a co-worker. Heroes make the world a better place, and you can help by spreading the word and nominating your hero.
