Dallas Heroes Project celebrates local heroes, educating citizens on critical issues facing the city, and enabling them to take social action to make a positive impact in the city of Dallas.
Our colleagues, friends, and family nominate people who are making a positive impact in Dallas. Then we learn everything we can about what they are doing.
We then use all media outlets at our disposal to tell everyone in Dallas all of the great work these heroes are doing.
Finally we identify ways we can help our heroes — through time, skills, or money. That way you'll know what they need and you can do what you can!
In 2015 the United Nations adopted 17 focus areas for sustainable development and to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. We try to pick a diverse set of heroes and causes that each tie back to one of these goals.
I just read about Dallas Heroes Project in Allen Neighbors magazine. You opened my eyes to IGNITE. I love that you use storytelling about the individual hero to reveal community engagement opportunities. Thank you!
