HEROES IN 2007
In 2007, viewers in 80 countries nominated more than 7,000 heroes. Eighteen finalists -- three each in six categories of cause-related work -- were selected, and one individual in each category was recognized in a live, global telecast. "CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute" was hosted by CNN's Anderson Cooper and Christiane Amanpour from the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
