Project Superhero is an initiative that utilizes superheroes and comic books as a way to engage at risk you and steer them towards positive paths, and promote literacy and civic engagement to all youth.
The Sullivan Ballou Fund gives $1000 awards to celebrate and affirm people acting from the heart. Recipients provide compassion, services, or advocacy to their local communities, the poor, homeless, children, victims of violence and mistreatment or the disabled. Some give of themselves to those around them through their art, their music, their words, or their presence.
The Fund seeks to recognize and honor those individuals in keeping with the spirit of Sullivan Ballou, a soldier who died in the Civil War leaving behind a letter to his wife that perfectly expresses both the kind of soulful commitment to others and the pure joy of being alive that reflect our highest nature.
