Each year, there are thousands of volunteers, sponsors, celebrities and supporters who demonstrate the spirit of humanity through their volunteer work, advocacy initiatives, leadership, media coverage, and philanthropy in communities across Canada. The World Vision Heroes for Children Awards is the NGO’s opportunity to celebrate those Canadians who have a clear heart for children, and have done something extraordinary. Michelle Wright has been awarded as an artist who uses a public voice to lift the needs of children.

Michelle was recently given the award at World Vision Canada headquarters in Mississauga during her recent trip to Canada in support of the new 6 part humanitarian video series she released. The video series was filmed in the Dominican Republic and documents Michelle’s emotional journey while visiting the developing country. Watch Michelle visit two music schools and give the gift of music!
