READ THIS!! Efren Peñaflorida has been named CNN Hero of the Year - November 22nd 2009, 12:43 PM

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're having a super duper day.

I encourage you to take the TIME to read this message AND to click on each of the names below. It's important for us to KNOW that there really are people in this world who care enough to put that care into action.

The winner of this years CNN 'Hero of the Year' is....

Efren Peñaflorida!!

Click on the link below to read all about it.


In his acceptance speech - Efron said [In part] the following:

"Our planet is filled with heroes, young and old, rich and poor, man, woman of different colors, shapes and sizes. We are one great tapestry," Peñaflorida said upon accepting the honor. "Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need."

"So to each and every person inside in this theater and for those who are watching at home, the hero in you is waiting to be unleashed. Serve, serve well, serve others above yourself and be happy to serve. As I always tell to my co-volunteers ... you are the change that you dream as I am the change that I dream and collectively we are the change that this world needs to be."
