On Thanksgiving at 9 PM (EST), CNN’s Anderson Cooper will host "CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute."
These aren’t heroes who can run 40 yards in four seconds, or score 100 points in a basketball game. They aren’t guys who have built business empires that makes billions.
They are regular people who have dedicated their lives to helping others. According to CNN:
"Our Top 10 CNN Heroes are proof that you don’t need superpowers — or millions of dollars — to change the world and even save lives," Cooper said.
CNN launched its second annual global search for ordinary people accomplishing extraordinary deeds in February. The network has aired weekly CNN Hero profiles of those people, chosen from more than 3,700 nominations submitted by viewers in 75 countries.
