HPR HEROES are some of the most phenomenal people all around us, who have been through tragic circumstances, yet choose to help others in need. This blog post is the initiative of ONE DOOR MEDIA Inc. to bring recognition to those real heroes.


A few of the 'heroes' featured on this site also run registered charities in Canada and the US; direct links to these not-for-profits are added at the end of their respective true-life stories - so readers may also consider donating directly to a charity of their choice.

Tania Haldar, Creator and Editor of HPR Heroes has previously been invited to speak about HPR HEROES at the Rotary Club in Oakville and has spoken at the March of Dimes, Toronto, and was also interviewed by Voices 4 Ability, a radio show in Toronto especially created for those with physical and intellectual disabilities. Her work has been featured in one of the local Toronto magazines and her stories have aired on Rogers TV, Cable 10 as well as featured on Halton TV. 

We wish to continue to spread the word about HPR HEROES, for two reasons : A) Make our heroes known through consistent PR efforts and raise funds for them, and, B) Spread hope and encouragement in the face of despair.


Therefore, if you know someone who can be featured as an HPR HERO, please feel free to reach us at

If eligible, we will set up interviews to learn more about their lives so that their stories may be also be featured. Because - we all need a little bit of hero in us.

Welcome to HPR HEROES! Read On . . .
