I'm looking for a hero"...
Wish Upon A Hero was first conceived by founder Dave Girgenti shortly after the September 11th attacks on New York City. From his home in NJ, Girgenti watched as thousands of people posted pictures of missing loved ones throughout the city. He thought there had to be a faster, more organized way to connect people in need. That was the moment in which the idea was born.
Less than five years later, Hurricane Katrina created a similar catastrophic event in New Orleans where hundreds of thousands of people needed immediate help. This time it wasn't just about locating loved ones. Hurricane victims needed everything from healthcare services, food, fresh water, clothing and shelter.
It became clear that Wish Upon a Hero needed to become more than an idea. Over the next two years, Girgenti exhausted every resource at his disposal to create an online community that offered a platform for people to help people. Working under the mantra of "No wish too large and no hero too small," Girgenti created WishUponAHero.com, which launched in September 2007. This is a one of a kind service designed to connect those in need with people that can truly change their lives.
Cast a wish
Wish Upon A Hero is completely free to its users, allowing everyone who registers the opportunity to cast up to three wishes at a time. Because Wish Upon A Hero is designed to help everyone, wishes can be big or small, elaborate or simple, based on financial need or just asking for a simple favor.
Be a hero
Wish Upon A Hero is a unique venue for any individual, organization, or company looking to make a difference in someone's life, or the lives of countless people. Heroes come in all ages and from all walks of life. All of us, from our nation's most powerful corporations to individual philanthropists, and those with limited financial means, can be someone's hero: A man who buys uniforms for his town's little league team.
Let's be generous out there!

Heroes Of Civilization
A great site to visit whenever you want to restore your faith in people. Its honorees are ordinary people who risked their lives, and sometimes lost them, while attempting to save others from drowning, fire, assault, and other catastrophes.
Pittsburgh steelmaker Andrew Carnegie had long held the idea that ordinary citizens who perform extraordinary acts of heroism should be recognized for their deeds. A massive explosion on January 25, 1904, in a coal mine at Harwick, Pa., near Pittsburgh, claiming 181 lives, inspired him to act...two of the victims had entered the mine after the explosion in ill-fated rescue attempts.
Within three months of the disaster, Carnegie had set aside $5 million under the care of a commission to recognize "civilization's heroes" ...and to provide financial assistance for those disabled and the dependents of those killed helping others.
The Carnegie Hero Fund Commission carries out the founder's wishes by awarding the Carnegie Medal throughout the United States and Canada. Over the 105 years of its existence, the Fund has awarded more than 9,000 medals and $30 million in accompanying grants, including scholarship aid and continuing assistance.

Pay it Forward!
We hear a lot about the economy and whether it is getting bad or not. Depending on the channel you watch or which person is running for what office you will be told how things "really are" in today's market. And if we hear the terms "Main Street" and "Wall Street" as a comparison of what we (as the working Americans) can already see ... well, you get the point.
The fact of the matter is that we all know someone who is having a rough time of it lately. And as Oklahomans we naturally try to lend a helping hand ... it's what we do. And there is a really neat way for you to nominate a real person or family that you would help if you could.
Spirit Bank and Channel Four have teamed together to let us nominate a person or family to give $400 each week! Just go to: http://www.kfor.com/marketplace/payit4ward and submit who you think could use a helping hand. Each week someone will receive $400 cash because one of their friends, family or co-workers wants to "pay it forward."
Hoping you'll be able to Pay It Forward!
