About Us

MaryMargaret O'Neill
Hey guys! My name is MaryMargaret OíNeill. Iím 19 years old and a freshman at Georgia Southern University.
When I was 9 years old, I founded Kids Are Heroesģ.

Kids Are Heroes is an amazing organization to be part of. You get to make a difference in the world while meeting other kids and knowing that you made an impact in someoneís life, which I think is a pretty amazing feeling. You get to be apart of an fantastic community of other kids who also want to make this planet a better place. I really hope to make history with this organization, Wouldn't you want to be a part of history? If you want to be a hero on this site, I recommend looking through the stories of some of the heroes and try to find your passion. Itís something fun to do and it feels great once youíve finished your project knowing that you helped the world out, just one person at a time. So go for it! Start a project, get your friends involved, and become a hero on the site! We are ALWAYS looking for more heroes and we would love to have you featured! I hope to see you on the site soon! Thank you for reading!
Gabe O'Neill
My name is Gabe and I am MaryMargaret's very proud dad. I helped her a bit with getting her web site together. We really do encourage parents to sit down with their children and read the examples of the amazing things that kids are accomplishing. You will be surprised what you might "wake up" inside your own child.

Although this effort began in 2008 as strictly a father-daughter project, it quickly grew much larger than the two of us ever imagined. The visceral reaction to the site and how it empowers children to become social entrepreneurs is our driving force. We bear witness to child after child whose careers are skyrocketing due mostly to these experiences they have shared with us as young activists.

If you would like to contact me you can do that here.
