The purpose of the ‘Real Heroes of Mexico’ project is to recognize the goodwill efforts and positive, inspirational stories taking place in Mexico today. From those battling press, delivering babies or rescuing animals, this one-of-a-kind effort showcases their acts of kindness, their achievements and dedication and takes it to a new level.

“These entries were so special, so full of humanity, I spent the last few months creating this book as a memento in order to celebrate each hero and their service,” said creator of the project, Susie Albin-Najera. “We see everyday people in Mexico, doing positive things in the community, in business, in the environment, in their homes and in non-profits who donate their time and go above and beyond, and most go unrecognized. This platform allows for others to learn about and celebrate their amazing efforts.”

The nominations came in from all throughout Mexico, from Tijuana to Juarez, Guadalajara to San Miguel de Allende, Oaxaca to Chiapas and everywhere in between.  Nominations also came in from the U.S. and Canada, connecting countries and communities alike.

Because the project has been so well received, there have already been requests for submission for 2013. The MEXICO Report has plans for annual versions of this endeavor with the next set of nominations scheduled to begin again this February, 2013.
