Pro vs Anti
In a world of chaos, confusion and negativity, it seems as though there is a movement more and more toward “Anti” type of programs. There is something to be said for spreading the word and message about not doing specific things like bullying, drugs, etc. However, the amount of attention and focus that the media and others have placed on the “Anti-” programs has, in many ways, caused the wrong type of attention. There continues to be so much focus on the bad things, the negative effects and ways to battle against these things. No wonder there it is such a struggle getting through to our youth. They get bombarded by messages of “don’t” and “watch out.”
The Pink Shoe Hero Foundation firmly believes that taking our Pro-Empowerment message is what the youth in today’s world need to hear. When youth can find out what they are passionate about, what goals they want to accomplish and how to find their inner hero, the whole negative/positive dynamic can change.
The truth is, there’s a hero inside each young person. Often times it just takes someone to help them make that connection. When that connection is made, there is no need for Anti programs because we will see a whole new world where the heroes of today become the leaders of tomorrow. They can then help to inspire a new generation of heroes and leaders.
We have a mission to help youth feel empowered to become the heroes they are meant to be. We want to change Anti into Pro and make a difference. This will come as we get our message out to the world. We hope you will join our cause.
