We Need a Hero!

CNN is looking for its Hero of the Year. Click here to vote for your favorite. Of course, ours is Efren Penaflorida from the Philippines, a child of the slums who knew early on that education is the way out of poverty. To pay it forward, this extraordinary young man turned pushcarts loaded with books and educational materials into ambulatory classrooms, heading into the poor areas to give lessons. With the help of friends, he formed Dynamic Teen Company.

You have until 19 November to cast your vote. There is no limit to the number of times you can vote. CNN is televising "CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute" @ 9 PM this Thanksgiving Day, 26 November.
