My name is Tania Haldar and I am the creator of HPR HEROES. I am a resident of Oakville and a photographer by profession but I also interview everyday heroes from all around us, for it is a cause I believe in deeply.
HPR HEROES are some of the most phenomenal people who have been through tragic circumstances, yet choose to help others in need. A few of the 'heroes' featured on my site also run registered charities in Canada and the US; direct links to these not-for-profits are added at the end of their respective true-life stories - so readers may also consider donating directly to a charity of their choice.
I was previously invited to speak about HPR HEROES at the Rotary Club in Oakville, and have spoken to a classroom full of students with physical and intellectual disabilities at the March of Dimes, Canada, in Toronto, and was also interviewed by Voices 4 Ability, a radio show in Toronto especially created for those with disabilities. My work has been featured in one of the local Toronto magazines and a couple of my stories have also been shown on Rogers TV, Cable 10. I wish to continue to spread the word about HPR HEROES, for two reasons :
A) Make our heroes known, B) Spread hope and encouragement in the face of despair.
Therefore, if you know someone who can be featured as an HPR HERO, please feel free to mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be setting up interviews with them to learn more about them so that their stories may be featured. We all need a little bit of hero in us!
