CNN Heroes added 7 new photos to the album: RIP CNN Hero Dale Beatty — with Purple Heart Homes.

Sad news from the #CNNHeroes family – CNN Hero Dale Beatty passed away unexpectedly this morning. In 2013, he was honored as a Top 10 CNN Hero for his work with Purple Heart Homes. After he lost his legs in the Iraq war, his community thanked him for his service by helping him build a home. To pay it forward, Dale co-founded Purple Heart Homes, a nonprofit that modifies or helps provide homes for disabled veterans. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and everyone touched by his work with Purple Heart Homes.

Past Top 10 #CNNHeroes share how the free nonprofit training and guidance they received from The Annenberg Foundation's Annenberg Alchemy program has been a 'game changer.' Learn more at CNNHeroes.com
