Heaven’s Heroes is committed to bringing smiles to the children of America’s fallen men and women in uniform. In the eyes of a child, there are no greater heroes than mom and dad.
When a man or woman in uniform sacrifices their life for their country, the children they leave behind lose not only a parent, but also a role model – their hero.
Heaven’s Heroes makes it their goal to help the kids experience another hero during this painful time. That person may be a pro-sports player, a chef, a figure skater, a pilot – anyone who can leave a positive imprint on a child suffering a loss of this size.
We can all be a hero to the right child at the right time. We only need the opportunity. Heaven’s Heroes matches the children of fallen servicemen and women with volunteer heroes who serve the kids in their own way – and be a hero for a day. They need only to share their lives with a child who suddenly needs them. We can never fill in the empty seat at the dinner table, but we can reach for the heaven’s and pull down a bit of sunshine and joy for a child, if even for a day. It’s the least we can do to show our warriors on the home front – big and small – how we appreciate them and their loved ones who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
