The Giraffe Heroes Project recognizes "giraffes" -- people who "stick out their necks" for others. Visit the Kid's Page of that organization and read about the project and some kid heroes. How is Victor like a Giraffe Hero? Talk about charitable community initiatives that your school or class has joined. What could they do to become Giraffe Heroes?
