Every Child Needs a Champion...we say this daily! We see it daily as well in the communities in which we serve. One of those real life champions was featured recently on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Take a minute to view the video here. (By the way….you will need to have a tissue handy!)

We hear a lot of negative comments about public education and educators these days, yet we know there are many good things happening in our schools. I know all of you are aware of many champions in your own schools who are making a difference in the lives of children by giving of their time, talent, or treasure. We would love to highlight the “Spirit of Bright Futures” and these champions by featuring them on our Bright Futures USA social media pages and our website. Wouldn’t it be great if we could showcase one positive story a day to give our champions the recognition they deserve? Wouldn’t it also be great if by simply doing that we were able to inspire others to follow in their footsteps?  Wouldn't it be great if good news was shared regularly instead of bad or sensationalized stories?

I’d like to encourage each of you to send a positive story to us on a daily basis. Email those stories to  You shouldn’t have to look far to find one. Thanks for sharing the first “Spirit of Bright Futures” story Doug Hunt! Who will be next?
