The Project

According to the Every Day Hero Campaign, an every|day hero is:

Everyday: ordinary, everyday people performing heroic actions for people, organizations and issues

Every Day: being someone willing to be aware and present every day to your surroundings, your environment, and your culture; have your eyes and ears open every day to what circumstances may be in front of you that require action — heroic action!

Be the person who gives back.

We will give back to the people who need it most. When somebody needs a smile, we will give them one. If somebody needs food, we will donate it. When somebody needs somebody to stand up for them, we will.

Be the person who brings a smile to people's faces...

Be the type of person who brightens up a person's mood when they're feeling down. We will do our best to help people to keep a positive outlook. We will do our best to, "Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier." ~Mother Teresa

Be the person who is thankful for the small things.

Often times we get so caught up in what we don't have, that we don't take the time to reflect and be thankful for all of the small things in our lives. This week, take the time to pause and think about, what are you thankful for?

Be the person who accepts and doesn't judge.

To our class, this will look like....

  • When someone makes a mistake, we don't change our whole perception of that person. 
  • When we don't judge people by their past. 
  • We don't try to change people's beliefs or personality. 
  • We don't stereotype, but accept people as they are. 
  • It looks like a handshake or a hug to someone who may not commonly receive one.
