Craig Kielburger has short brown hair, blue eyes, and
Craig Kielburger was born on December 17, 1982
in Thornhill, Canada.
His parents are Fred and Theresa Kielburger.
Craig wanted to stop child labour. when he was
12 years old he saw a newspaper heading saying
that a 12 year old boy named Iqbal Masih was
killed because he was fighting for no child labour
since he was forced to work at a carpet factory at
the age of 4.
Craig wanted to talk to the Prime Minister of
Canada Jean Chretien about stopping child
labour but got denied.
Yes, Craig did get help by many people such as
Alam Rahman, Jean Chretien after Craig did a
press conference saying that the Prime Minister
had a moral responsibility to take action on child
labour, Oprah Winfrey's Angel Network, his
brother Marc Kielburger, Oprah Winfrey herself,
Richard Gere, Jane Goodall, and Desmond Tutu.
You can learn determination from Craig
Kielburger's work because he worked till the end
trying to end something that was wrong in the
world that got him mad.
Craig represents my definition of heroism because he has
courage to do something what's right in the world and he is
greatly admired for what he did to stop child labour.
Craig Kielburger functioned as a hero by investigating what
child labour was, talked to hundreds of reporters saying that
the prime minister should come in board with him, and
wrote a book exposing child labour and what it was like.
Craig is not a person who doesn't back down, doesn't show
fear, he is not afraid to tell something, and shows a little
problem can go a long way.
Jason from the Lost Hero is brave because he
was trying to fight a huge monster that might
have destroyed the world and that takes a lot of
bravery to do.
Craig Kielburger did a lot of hard work to try to
end child labour.
