Review for My Hero Project Inc, Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have loved the MY HERO Project since I first learned about it more than 20 years ago! What a simple idea--to celebrate humanity through the good news via stories, films, and art! The support for teachers is wonderful. For young people to have published their hero story online as part of this worldwide community must be thrilling!

I love MY HERO! I talk about the MY HERO Project at every education conference where I speak because everything about it--from the idea of a global repository of stories, short films, and art works celebrating humanity to the resources in the teacher room and the beautiful, accessible website--contribute to the positive understanding of the power of connections, mutual respect, and the value of seemingly small efforts to make the world a better place.

Review for My Hero Project Inc, Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

MY HERO provides the space where children and adults from around the world can share their stories, short films, and art work about their heroes and heroism. The stories are charming, moving, passionate, poignant, and personal, and tell us all about the good people and good work that is being done. As a teacher educator, I encourage teachers to have their students explore the MY HERO resources and consider the idea of heroic acts--large and small--and even see themselves as heroes (both teachers and students!). Each of us can make a positive difference in our lives and those of others. MY HERO suggests this is so, and proves it by promoting these ideas through providing a space for the stories, with the result that we all can learn about other members of our global community who have done good, often through overcoming obstacles--which then provides inspiration for us all.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do all I could to encourage funders to contribute so MY HERO expand its services!
