Do You Know a Hero?

We connect through story. My favorite stories are the ones that center on individuals and organizations who are doing extraordinary work to lift and inspire others. Through their selfless acts they are making a difference in their communities. Sometimes it is a really cool human interest story about the triumph of the human spirit. Sometimes it is about community building. Sometimes it is about youth enrichment. But, it is always about putting others first.

Unfortunately, these individuals and organizations often fly under the radar. Their stories don’t reach a wide audience. I want to change that.

Heroes Among Us is based on a simple idea: shine a spotlight on these individuals and organizations and share their stories. Simple, right?

I need your help. I need you to send me these stories. Point me to these heroes so I can share, when it makes sense.


So, do you know a hero? Tell me their story here:
