WWE Superstars and Fans Are Honoring Their #My2020Hero on Twitter — And We’re Here for It


Why Global Citizens Should Care
The United Nations' Global Goal 16 calls for peace, justice, and strong institutions. World leaders and citizens can do their part in achieving this goal — and so can celebrities. The #My2020Hero campaign recognizes those who contributed to peace and inclusivity by lifting their community this year. You can join us by tagging your #My2020Hero and taking action to help achieve the Global Goals here.

Though we can all agree that this year has been challenging for all, and devastating for many, it’s clear that what has carried us through 2020 is the compassion and kindness of others. 

This month, prominent WWE Superstars decided to honor the special people who have made their lives a little brighter this year, by taking part in Global Citizen’s #My2020Hero campaign — which calls on Global Citizens everywhere to honor those making a positive difference in their lives. 

WWE Superstar Mojo Rawley first took to Twitter using the #My2020Hero hashtag to celebrate Chris Nikic, the first person with Down’s syndrome to complete an Ironman triathlon. 

What followed was a moving string of tweets in which WWE Superstars and their fans celebrated one another.

Here are just a few of the tweets to warm your heart and encourage you to take part in this campaign to share the love.

Your #My2020Hero can be anyone, from your best friend to a complete stranger — and they could even be featured during Global Citizen Prize, an award ceremony hosted by John Legend that celebrates inspirational activists and leaders globally, and will broadcast and stream around the world from Dec. 19. You can find full global listings so you can tune in wherever you are, here.
