Dear Friends and Supporters of KYP, 

This morning, I woke up a CNN Hero. The CNN team visited Kliptown and put together an inspiring piece on our work at KYP, showcasing the vital work the organization does for Kliptown. While I am featured as the "hero", the piece is really tribute to the dreams and hard work of all of the leaders, members, and supporters of KYP. As they used to tell us at City Year, "there is no achievement that is too small." Let's celebrate this great honor! 

You can find the video at the website or see it on CNN, HLN, or CNN International at any of the times below. You can also see more at the CNN Heroes Facebook page

Thank you again to everyone for all of your support. We hope you are as proud as we are!
