Heart Of a Hero is a non-profit organization founded by Ricky Mena after having a detailed dream where his deceased grandmother showed him dressed as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man bringing joy to a world full of kids in need! Ricky awoke from the dream and the real thing was born!
As of October 2014 Spider-Man has made visits to over 9,000 children which include the homeless, special needs, foster and both children battling life threatening illnesses and kids who are terminally ill. Spider-Man and his team at HEART OF A HERO noticed quickly how a simple visit from their hero lifted not only spirits of the children but also the families supporting these children.
Each visit is unique and special. Spidey shows up for all underprivileged/ill children for FREE and even arrives baring gifts! Heart Of a Hero accepts both monetary and toy/clothe donationswhich is a critical part of keeping these services free for these beautiful children in need.
It's our mission here at Heart Of a Hero to inspire, motivate and empower children who need it most!
