I've decided that we all need something more positive and uplifting! I thought this the other day when I was out with Birmingham Homeless Outreach and feeding and chatting to the homeless people. I was out with Rik James, the founder of Birmingham Homeless Outreach. Rik, to me, he is a bit of a hero! And I sincerely mean that, even though he hates it when I call him my hero! Rik works tirelessly to help the homeless around Birmingham. He gives up his own coat for the homeless in birmingham, he feeds them, chats to them, helps them to find hostels and a place to stay for the night. He does so much for the homeless and I think he is a hero. Then I thought, there must be other people who knows someone they call their hero and who never get recognised for it??? And then I thought there must be loads of local heroes we never hear anything about yet, they are out there doing heroic work every single day!
I want to find 100 local heroes, all nominated by YOU! And when I have selected 100 local heroes, I will take each and everyone of their picture and write their story next to the picture! And then the pictures will be exhibited around the Midlands for you all to go and see!
So who is your hero? Who does something for someone? Who has touched you or done something for you which has been invaluable? There must be so many positive stories out there about some heroic people who all live in our local community and have not been recognised for their action!
Do something for them now, nominate them and give them the recognition for what they have done!!
Go to my website and read about my local hero, Rik and nominate yours!!
Here's a picture of the first hero in my hunt for 100 local heros!
This is Rik James!!
