Restoring Faith in Humanity...
One Story at a Time.
Why are over 37,000 people in 118 countries reading HeroicStories?
Begun in 1999, HeroicStories brings diverse, international voices to the world - reminding us that people are good, that individuals and individual action matter. We've published over 800 stories like the following:
A construction worker laments his painful winter-cracked hands until he sees a man delivering newspaper bundles... a man with no hands.
Klansmen burn a cross in the yard of a Mississippi civil rights worker. She scares them off... then brings her children out to toast marshmallows over the burning cross.
A grandmother remembers her childhood Christmas Eve in a home with no heat. On Christmas morning she found a tree, gifts for all the kids... even heat.
A driver's headlights quit on the highway at night. Another driver slows, turns on his brights, lights her way for over an hour to her exit... then turns around to drive back to his original destination.
OUR MISSION IS to publish examples of people being good to each other, to inspire similar heroic actions in others. (Our readers say it's working in their lives.)
It's easy to receive HeroicStories: they're free, delivered directly to you by email. (We guarantee your privacy; we never share your address.)
