We hope that by telling their special stories, we will inspire other
kids to accomplish their own amazing achievements.?

?Jason has created a 501c3 tax-exempt organization called: "The Cello
Cries On" to help him in his work to bring peace to the world.?

Craig Kielburger

into bondage as a carpet weaver, escaped and was murdered for speaking
out against child labor. Craig gathered a group of friends and founded
the organization (Kids Can) Free the Children.?

Courageous kids

Every day, some kids are out there hatching ideas, making plans,
building dreams, all to make the world a better place. It takes a lot
of courage to try to change things. We applaud young people who try to
make a difference in their communities.

The Most Courageous Thing Someone Did
by Soufian Celi, age 10


Children of courage

Matthew, 11, Herefordshire 

?Last November, Matthew went Christmas shopping with his mum and
12-year-old brother when their car crashed. Sadly, his brother Ben was
killed but mum is sure she'd have died too if it wasn't for the
courage and calm of Matthew. He freed her from her seatbelt to stop
her choking then climbed out the back window for help.?

Matthew, 13, Oldham 

?Matthew was 5 when his mum suffered a rare brain virus. He helped out
with the family, getting up early to make breakfast for him and his
sister, making the beds, getting out his mum's clothes and measuring
out her medication before going to school. At lunchtime, he goes back
to check she's OK. His school work hasn't suffered and he's in the top
sets in all his classes.?



Child heroes of bus bomb rescue

?One 15-year-old student of nearby Ort Spanyan school - his satchel
still bloodstained - told his teacher of how he went to the rescue of
a little girl as others scrambled through the wreckage to help


Catherine Malonza saved her brother's life.
Read the story here:

?At age 16, Gerson Andrés Flórez Pérez has already dedicated his life
to achieving peace in his home country of Colombia. He has been
nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, and honored for his years of work
for peace in Colombia and in the world.?
