CELEBRITY HEROES

Notoriety supports a powerful platform to enable positive change. Today, more than ever, high-profile celebrities are aggressively using their prominence to advocate for important causes. Many illustrious stars champion for their favorite charities, some even establishing their own NGOs. Often dedicating their own time and financial support, these renowned artists, athletes and the like are more than masters of their craft, they’re philanthropic heroes.

YOUTH HEROES

The access to information the youth have today is insurmountable. Our children are keenly informed on countless issues, including threats to our planet and their future. Acknowledging the potentially dire situation, many kids are stepping up, speaking out and holding the older generations accountable for the damage done to the planet. Let us introduce you to a few brave young warriors on the front lines fighting for the rights of the planet and the people and animals who inhabit it.

EVERYDAY HEROES

Superheroes are often disguised as ordinary people doing extraordinary things. These valiant individuals yearn to help the helpless and are committed to causes that matter. Their grassroots effort helps propel lawful justice, giving them the power to save lives. Allow us to share a few of their heroic tales.

CORPORATE HEROES

Participating in philanthropic ventures is quickly developing into a standard business practice. Companies are becoming eco-conscious and conducting themselves in more ethical and sustainable ways. In doing so, they challenge the status quo by allowing for the careful consideration of human and environmental rights. These corporate heroes are the trailblazers for global change.

HUMAN RIGHTS

Human rights are the freedoms essential to all human beings, regardless of their race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. All humans have the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of expression, the right to an education, and much more. As the world becomes a more inclusive place, we want to share all the victories—big and small.

CHILDREN’S RIGHTS

All children have universal, human rights that protect them from being put into unsafe situations. As citizens, it’s our responsibility to respect the rights of children and advocate for their safety. With the help of programs all over the world, we can all be a part of making this world a better, safer place for our youth.
