In April we welcome Gabe & MaryMargaret O'Neill, the founders of Kids Are Heroes. This organization supports a tremendous worldwide network of young social entrepreneurs.


MaryMargaret O'Neill founded the Kids Are Heroes® organization when she was just nine years old. Inspired by a passion to help animals, she asked her dad to build her a website. Her dad agreed as long as they could help people and the environment as well. Kids Are Heroes, founded in 2008, is a non-profit incubator for young social entrepreneurs. They get kids involved in their community by showcasing those who are doing incredible things for others. MaryMargaret is the spokesperson for the organization and has herself been featured on the site five times. She has been interviewed in several international magazines, been a guest on the Ricki Lake Show, and often is asked to speak to groups large and small about her efforts, as well as to Skype in to classrooms all over the country.

Gabe O'Neill is the proud dad of MaryMargaret and also the President of Kids Are Heroes. Motivated by an urge to spend quality time with his daughter, and to also make an impact on the world, he agreed to build the website. Once he witnessed the visceral reaction from people and the incredible change they were having on children and families, his inspiration to build the organization continued to escalate. Gabe is a software developer by trade, but has been working tirelessly since Kids Are Heroes' inception to get the word out via social media and to network with as many people as he can to discover those passionate enough about their work to help them further it to a national then global level.
