Read about the new heroes

The Skoll Foundation encouraged people to host house parties to share compelling stories from The New Heroes with friends and family. The pages on this Web site demonstrate how the house party campaign worked.

Those interested in hosting house parties signed up to receive a House Party Tool Kit that included a free DVD with four of the stories from The New Heroes, a PBS documentary series that aired during the summer of 2005. Sponsored by the Skoll Foundation and hosted by Robert Redford, the series told 12 dramatic stories about social entrepreneurs—individuals dedicated to pioneering new solutions that result in lasting improvements to complex social problems.

Those who attended house parties were invited to contribute to organizations run by social entrepreneurs profiled in the series through GlobalGiving. As an incentive, the Skoll Foundation matched donations through February 28, 2006.
