Will you Be an Unsung Hero?

Who doesn’t just love a comic book super hero? They really are some incredible dudes. Rescuing damsels in distress, fighting crime, and sometimes, saving us from the most devious, underhanded, power hungry villans on the planet (or elsewhere!).

Though some heroes came to earth having super powers (i.e., Superman), others generated their own strength by just eating right (i.e., Popeye and spinach).

So how about you? What powers and talents do you have just to be an everyday hero? Do you use them daily to the best of your ability? What do you eat and how do you fuel your body to be “ready for anything?”

What if you were simply an Unsung Hero instead? You know, someone who truly made a difference in the lives of others without having a cape or super powers? I know one. And, even though the Unsung Hero is appreciated by many, his talents and powers are being squelched. Unfortunately, his contributions to society are in danger because his health is failing.

Wouldn’t you want to save this Unsung Hero so he could continue to be super?

For those that recently heard about Greg Staffa on Christmas Day, you know about the St. Cloud Times Series he was in covering the seven Central Minnesotans celebrated for being Unsung Heroes. Why was Greg nominated? Because he has been working tirelessly to change attitudes about homelessness, and has been helping homeless people as much as he can since 2009.

Sadly, Greg’s advocacy and actions, though impressive, are threatened. Why? His health is not ideal and he needs to improve it. Greg needs more energy and vitality to continue his mission, and, so that he has the chance to keep making his own life better.

Though there is no magic health cure for him, there is something that can help guide him in the right direction.

It’s time for a cold pressed juice cleanse.

Health professionals have been advocating juice cleanses for years. It’s simple; drink juice, feel better. Drinking just juice helps you lose weight, detox and reboot your body, and thereby energize yourself for being a better everyday hero going forward.

So how about it? Would you contribute to a campaign dedicated to an Unsung Hero in need? Doing so will make you Be an Unsung Hero too.

I’m excited to announce that this crowd funding campaign is launching soon. Stay tuned!
