Imagine a sick young child feeling sad, lonely and afraid in a hospital.
Now imagine the sheer joy a young child would feel about a visit
from none other than... Spider-Man!
Ricky Mena founded the non-profit organization Heart of a Hero
to lift the spirits of not only those kids who are battling serious illnesses,
but also those who are homeless, in foster care, or have special needs.
Spider-Man has also been known to visit classrooms to talk about bullying.
Superheroes have special ways to encourage kids, to restore their hope,
and to inspire them to have can-do attitudes of optimism.
Laughter, smiles, plus a fun pack of stickers, a mask or other Spidey gifts
add up to a brighter day and a burst of happiness for the kids and their families!
I say, "Hooray for Heart of a Hero", whose mission statement is to
"inspire, motivate and empower children who need it most!"
Can't beat that feeling of invincibility knowing that Spider-Man is on your side!
