Who is a Superhero?


From ordinary to extraordinary. That is the story of every superhero! Whether it is a child taking care of a lost cat, a teenager standing up for a friend, a mother reading to her child every night, or a front-line worker helping those in need… each of these people have one thing in common; they are simply a regular person that is putting someone else’s needs ahead of their own. THAT makes you a superhero!




Be A Superhero and Take the Challenge!

#superheromovement kicks off in August 2022


1. Sew a “Be a Superhero” Doll, Pillow or Quilt.


2. Take a photo of your Superhero holding the doll, “wearing” the quilt, laying under the quilt or wrapped in the quilt and being transformed into a Superhero!


3. Post it on social media under the hashtag #superheromovement


4. Bee Sew Inspired (Jennifer Long), will share and link YOUR photos under this hashtag to a collage on the Blog to lift up the good news stories of all the superhero’s everywhere in the world! Anyone can be an ordinary superhero! Let’s fill up the social media feeds with Superheroes!


5. Be a part of the power of sharing love, spreading good news stories and lifting each other up, everywhere around the world!
