What is Little Heroes?

Little Heroes is a new way to help families bring values like kindness to life, while helping to support the British Red Cross at the same time.

The activities are for kids of all ages, but we think 3 to 8 year olds in particular will love them!

How it works

1

Sign up to a Little Heroes membership for a monthly donation of £7.50, and we’ll send you fun-filled activity packs every month.

2

Enjoy your activity pack! Each one focuses on one of the four values: kindness, gratitude, patience and humour.

3

After you’ve collected the 48 activity cards over 12 months, we hope you’ll choose to continue your regular donation to the British Red Cross, turning good values into positive actions.

Little Heroes is supported by your monthly donation to the British Red Cross – that means you’re in total control and can stop your donation at any time.

Meet the heroes

Captain Kindness

Captain Kindness

Captain Kindness will help your little hero discover the joy of being kind to others and the importance of being kind to yourself – he shows the way with magical powers like compliments and empathy. Being kind helps little heroes feel more confident, relaxed and happy.

Funny Bunny

Funny Bunny

Funny Bunny shows us all how looking on the bright side helps to make the most of situations and how to become more resilient. Plus, it’s a great way to make new friends. Gut-busting giggles and bonkers gags will have your little ones in stitches while they learn and play.

Gratitude Giant

Gratitude Giant

This hero is into saying ‘thank you’ in a BIG way. Being grateful releases the brain’s happy chemicals and little ones who are great at saying thanks tend to be more trusting and better at dealing with life’s little bumps in the road.

Patience Pal

Patience Pal

Patience Pal is all about the chill. Encouraging young people to live in the moment and stay calm and relaxed is an important part of avoiding anxiety and increasing mindfulness. Research has found that children who can wait patiently tend to be happier, less stressed and more hopeful for the future!

FAQs

Where does my money go?

By signing up to Little Heroes, your money goes towards supporting the work of the British Red Cross, a charity that helps people in crisis all over the world.

How often will I receive a Little Heroes activity pack?

You’ll receive one pack a month for 12 months. We send the packs out at the end of each month, postage is already paid and the packs should fit straight through your letterbox.

What age is Little Heroes designed for?

The activities can be enjoyed by children of all ages, but we think children between three and eight will particularly enjoy them.

How long do the activities take?

The activities are designed to be adaptable and fit into parents’ busy schedules. Some can be as short as one minute, while others can take around half an hour or even longer if you want them to.
