The Global Hero Foundation was created in February 2019 by Gary Kong, Billie Mitchell, and Ying Zhu. It
is currently a privately self-funded organization with a goal of saving lives, creating a better world and truly
honoring those people who dedicated their lives to helping others.
The mission of the Global Hero Foundation is to help ordinary people do extraordinary things. We
achieve that goal by providing financial support, medical supplies, and the payment of medical bills and travel expenses for those tasked with assisting others whenever, and wherever, disaster or crisis occurs.
We define Global Heroes as: doctors, nurses, medical professionals, first responders and members of point
of contact organizations.
Global Hero Foundation was also created to assist the fireman, the police officer and first responders
who saved others and were wounded in the line of duty, by sustaining them and providing
monetary assistance for their medical bills, household bills and food for their families. These are the
people we like to call Global Heroes
The Global Hero Foundation donated over 12, 000 Surgical Masks to NYU, NYC Police Departments, and NYC EMS workers. We will continue to work with all health care workers to combat the spread of the corona virus
Joint statement by Borough President Oddo, Congressman Max Rose, District Attorney Michael E. McMahon, Senator Diane Savino, Senator Andrew Lanza, Assemblyman Michael Cusick, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, Assemblyman Mike Reilly, Assemblyman Charles Fall, Councilman Steven Matteo, Councilman Joe Borelli, and Councilwoman Debi Rose:
“We are joining together to thank the Global Hero Foundation for coming forward at this time of need. Founders Gary Kong and Staten Island native Billie Mitchell remind us that as New Yorkers and Americans, we come together in times of need. This donation of 40,000 surgical masks and 800 N95 masks will immediately help safeguard those on the front lines of this imminent crisis. We are working closely with medical personnel in our hospitals and nursing homes to meet their needs. Additionally, we want to be sure that bus drivers who are transporting essential personnel to and from their jobs have the much needed protection, as they drive their routes.”
