What Is Your Everyday Heroes?
Your Everyday Heroes is a documentary platform that seeks to spotlight ordinary people who do extraordinary deeds, sacrificing bits of themselves for the wellbeing of humanity. We believe that all people have the potential to be heroes, that heroism does not necessarily equal wealth, power, or social capital. Because these traits are often falsely correlated with heroism, everyday heroes are likely to go unnoticed. Through our inspiring documentaries, we hope to change that.
Documenting the Day-to-Day Lives of Everyday Heroes
Our documentaries showcase the unbelievable accomplishments of everyday heroes, while still demonstrating their humanity. In seeing the relatable struggles that our heroes endure, we hope that our viewers will recognize their own potential for heroism. We want to inspire not only positive thought, but positive action.
Everyday Heroes From All Walks of Life
While our platform is based in the United States, we feel that it is vital to share inspiring stories from across the globe, as heroism is a universal trait. Our heroes are not limited to a single cultural background, struggle, or cause. They exemplify the endless ways in which a person can be heroic.
Why Did We Create Your Everyday Heroes?
We founded Your Everyday Heroes to both inspire our viewers and to highlight the heroism of people who are glossed over by larger media outlets. Even with the many documentaries we have already filmed, we are still in our infant stages, constantly expanding our reach to find heroes of different backgrounds and with different causes.
