About CNN Heroes
CNN Heroes is a CNN campaign that puts the spotlight on ordinary people who accomplish extraordinary deeds in areas ranging from the environment to human rights. Now in its 5th year, CNN Heroes has been showing how efforts by a single individual can make a difference in the world.
CNN is encouraging viewers to nominate ‘everyday heroes’ from all over the world. A new CNN Hero will be featured each week on CNNj and CNN.com. A special CNN editorial board narrows down the Top 10 CNN Heroes, who will be presented at the gala ‘CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute’ in December.
From these 10, the CNN Hero of the Year will be selected based on votes cast by viewers on CNN.com.
The audience response each year is enormous and continues to grow. In 2010, over 10,000 CNN Hero nominations from viewers in 100 countries were submitted. As a result of the show each year, the Top 10 Heroes receive countless donations, additional volunteers and traffic to each of their websites, increasing awareness of the Heroes’ causes and bringing light to the important issues they are addressing.
