Click on an image to read that hero’s story.

This nonprofit honors Giraffe Heroes—compassionate risk-takers who are largely unknown, people who have the courage to stick their necks out for the common good, in the US and around the world.

When we tell their stories in social and traditional media, others are moved to stick their necks out too, helping solve significant public problems important to them. Our books, blogs, curricula, speeches and trainings help them succeed.

As long as there are Giraffe Heroes, there's hope. Telling the stories of heroes may be the oldest strategy in the world for motivating people into brave, compassionate action—and it works.

We offer you here—

  • Here's a short video about a Giraffe Hero.
  • Watch and you'll see how awe-inspiring these stories are—
  • inspiration the Giraffe Heroes Project has been giving the world since 1982.
  • As long as there are Giraffes, there's hope.
  • You can help us keep on giving hope to the world.
