About Us

We are not here to tell you what a hero is, as heroes come in all shapes, sizes, and are found in many places. We hope to inspire you to share your heroes with us, and we 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 carefully about. We hope you help us spread goodness, love, kind acts, because we feel that’s what the world needs.

Barbara Borenstein

Producer / Director

Barbara’s passion for storytelling was instilled by her Mother and Grandmother. As a Sales and Marketing professional, she shared stories with her clients, enabling her to form relationships easily.

Her journey into Documentary Filmmaking began when her Father, Morris (Moshe) passed away (in 2008). Barbara’s Tribute Film of her Father marked his place in History. This ‘Labor of Love’ led her to filmmaking as a career. Her Father inspired her to look for Heroes in the world. When her stolen wallet was returned, Everyday Heroes was born.
