About

Heroes for Little Heroes is a registered Canadian nonprofit organization that provides support for medically vulnerable and disadvantaged children through youth volunteers at no cost. We started by providing princess character visits to children in a local hospital in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Since 2019, our organization has provided a variety of services to these children including: bedside hospital visits, arts and crafts, and book readings. In addition, we hold fundraising events throughout the year in our local community to raise money for charities that support children in need, while creating magical memories for local families. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, our services have mostly focused on community events and virtual storytime with a princess. We strive to provide the highest possible standard of service and guarantee that the experiences we provide are nothing short of magical!

Have courage and be kind. For where there is kindness there is goodness, and where there is goodness there is magic.

Our Mission

Our Story

Heroes for Little Heroes is a locally-run organization that was founded by Teagan MacDougall in Kelowna, British Columbia. As a university student, Teagan started volunteering in the emergency department and performed patient visitations at her local general hospital. After visiting the patients in pediatrics, she thought her visits with medically vulnerable children might be a little more exciting if she was dressed bearing resemblance to familiar princesses.

 

After seeing how happy these princess visits made the children, Teagan knew this had to be larger than herself. Thus, these humble visits grew exponentially and Heroes for Little Heroes came to fruition!

Our Goal

Our goal is to foster hope, bravery, and kindness in the children we visit and bring them happiness and a sense of magic during some of the most difficult times of their lives. Through our charity events, we strive to create magical moments for local families while raising funds for children in need. We hope to teach children that anyone can be a hero or princess if they have courage and be kind.
