Be an Everyday Hero- Campaign Toolkit
What is a hero? Does heroism demand extraordinary circumstances, or can heroism take place in our everyday lives?
A hero is someone who inspires us by their example. Heroes show us through their example that anything is possible.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. The NAGC is launching a hero’s campaign in honor of the 2019 National Children’s Grief Awareness month. During the month of November, we will learn how to be an everyday hero to grieving children as well as recognize those who have been a hero to grieving children.
Join us as we explore ways to be a hero, create new heroes, and celebrate the heroes among us.

Identify and celebrate the Everyday Heroes in your community. Everyday Heroes are anyone who supports a grieving child. Perhaps it is volunteers, donors, partner organizations, teachers, community leaders, Sunday school teachers, counselors, scout leaders, fellow grieving children and teens, and many more. Celebrate their heroism publicly through local media, social media, and special events in your community.
