Be A HERO creates heroes out of ordinary people by providing them with opportunities to change the world, one child at a time. Be A HERO opens the eyes of people everywhere to the wholesale destruction of children, and enlists everyone to the mission of mercy and social justice – caring for children suffering as a result of poverty, child labour, slavery, homelessness, sexual exploitation, aids and plagues, and war. Be A HERO is a registered Canadian, US and Australian charity with a mandate to educate, inspire, equip and facilitate people of all ages to challenge them to “Be A HERO” to the 1.2 billion children at risk. In partnership with proven, seasoned organizations, we fight to save dying children by sponsoring orphans; building orphanages, schools, and clinics; developing micro-enterprises; advocacy; prayer; and arranging “Hero Holidays” for people to see first-hand the desperate situation that many of our world’s children live in, and to help at an orphanage or other mercy project. We provide easy-to-use tools so that anyone (even children) can be a voice for mercy and social justice. "For every dollar invested in the development of a child, there is a seven dollar return for society." Kofi Annan, United Nations
