Are you a hero?

Here are four quick ways to tell:

1. Heroes see a need and they respond.

So here’s our “bat signal” for you:

CURE could heal MORE kids. We have the beds in our hospitals to do it. The missing piece? Donors. People willing to say, “I see what needs to be done, and I’m going to do it.”

Here’s the equation. It’s really this simple:

You + Action = Healed little bodies.

That’s an opportunity for heroism.

2. Heroes look for ways to change lives. It’s just what they do.

You’re changing the life – forever! – of a precious child, every single month.

This isn’t “child sponsorship.” You’re helping to heal a different boy or girl each month. You get to see her picture, or read about his condition and progress. You get to be part of God’s work in their lives.

You’re part of a remarkable story, month after month, one after the other – stories that wouldn’t happen without you.

3. Heroes sacrifice for what they believe.

There’s a children’s song that says, “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.”

It’s one thing to sing it.

You’re proving it.

4. Heroes know what they do matters.

One person may look at a hurting child, or a heartbroken mom, and say, “If God wants to help that person, He will do it without me.”

Another says, “But God’s plan is to use us. And I’m going to act.”

That second person?

Hero.
