BENEFITING: Project Aware Association Inc
Heroes4kids is a National Community Policing Outreach and juvenile justice diversionary effort. The program is based on the premise of positive verses negative permission in the minds of youth. If you tell a kid long enough that he or she is worthless - they will become just that - worthless. If, on the other hand, they are given mostly positive encouragement and stability they will become more positive in their self esteem and become more productive members of the community over the long term.
To help acheive that goal we are asking for the help of the common everyday person of good will to make a 30 second video aimed at a young person between the ages of 7-12 years of age. Start with your name, age and location and give words of encouragement to the youth. Perhaps tell them your personal story of how you overcame a negative situation or experience in your youth. Topics like bad associations, drug use, truthfulness and educational opportunities in their lives are a good start. Just be honest and let them know there are adults in their community that care and can help them along the way. We need to collect 10,000 videos in oreder to service 5 million kids on a national level. Again, limit your videos to 30 seconds in order to match our format. To view samples of the type of videos we need please go to HEROES4KIDS on Facebook.
Once you have made your 30 second video please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We suggest a donation of $30.00 as a mimimum contribution. Thank you -
