Kids Are Heroes®

MaryMargaret O'Neill
Kids Are Heroes® was founded by MaryMargaret at age nine.
"I want to protect all animals from extinction", she said.

"Our mission at Kids Are Heroes is to empower children from all cultures to become social entrepreneurs1 at an early age."

By showcasing the stories of hundreds of kids from all over the world who are creating a better planet for all of us, we empower children to effect positive change in the world, among their peers, and especially within themselves. We provide a gateway to leadership, self-confidence, and compassion for all children.

We believe kids are heroes and each one has the power to change the world! Our kids are drilling water wells in Africa, feeding and clothing orphans in India, and standing up for their causes. They are recycling and cleaning up their neighborhoods, helping their local animal shelters and making life better for their neighbors. And guess what? They are ALL just like YOU!!! To get started on YOUR journey, read the stories of other young changemakers!
