From superhero to super philanthropist, the world of Erin Cahill is full of magical moments both on and off the screen.

Known as a formidable trailblazer, the iconic public figure has dedicated her life to a remarkable mission of bringing forth positive change in the world. Whether through riveting performances or through charitable acts, global communities sparkle as bright as her shining star thanks to the dedicated life to simply making people happy.

Cahill has famously for years created a buzzworthy presence in show business. Recognized by fans around the world, she carries with her an undeniably cheerful vibe no matter where she goes.

Her acting career took off at lightning speed in 2001 when she was cast as Jen, the Pink Ranger in the series “Power Rangers: Time Force.” It rocketed her to fame and over the years her resume continued to be sprinkled with incredible performances in hit shows from “How I Met Your Mother,” “Body of Proof,” “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” “The Mentalist,” “Monk,” “CSI: NY,” and “Supernatural.” Her voice work has had profound moments with the female lead in both Sony’s animated feature Resident Evil Vendetta and Activision’s “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” for XBox and Playstation.

Featured in films just as equally pleased loyal followers with such notable moments in Disney’s “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2,” “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta!” and Sony’s “Boogeyman 3,” She even has been an independent films darling with such wonderful work showcased in “It Snows All the Time,” and “Cut to the Chase,” with a role that saw her win Best Supporting Actress at the Northeast Film Festival.

For all the accolades there is also the remarkable title that she bears of being a bona fide Hallmark Channel star. Her celebrity status with the network has been created by notable roles in “A Timeless Christmas,” “Sleigh Bells Ring,” “The Secret Ingredient,” “Every Time a Bell Rings,” “Love, Fall & Order” as well as the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original “Last Vermont Christmas.”

Next up, the delightful actress plays a lead in “Christmas on Cherry Lane,” which premieres Dec. 9. Celebrating the holidays and all the ups and downs that come with it, the network’s newest project additionally features Catherine Bell, Jonathan Bennett, John Brotherton, James Denton, and Vincent Rodriguez III. The film follows a young couple preparing to welcome their first child as well as an empty-nester and her fiancé ready to start a new chapter; and a couple who unexpectedly have the chance to expand their family on Christmas Eve.

While the channel focuses every holiday season on the countdown to Christmas, there is as much appreciated joy found in the scripts as there is in the truly tireless work of cast members like Cahill who give true meaning to making miracles happen all year round and beyond the magic of Hollywood.

Her hard work as a humanitarian is heralded by many. Charitable giving and volunteer work comes from a truly genuine fondness that is based on wanting to consistently rise to the occasion with earnestness to help those in need.

Being a patron of good deeds is an inspirational journey that is marched on with several admirable organizations including The Kindness Campaign, which was founded in 2015 by CEO Andra Liemandt after tragedy struck a dear friend’s family. Teaming up with teachers, creatives, and other passionate individuals, Andra founded the nonprofit focused on teaching social-emotional learning skills in fun, engaging ways. Cahill played a prolific role in a viral media campaign for World Kindness Day that promoted the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world.

Another cause very dear to the performer’s heart is the BuildOn movement, which is powered by passionate people from all walks of life who are committed to ending poverty through service and education. She has spent countless hours in America and equally abroad to empower the organization.

Their “Service Learning Program” mobilizes students in under-resourced urban areas to uplift their communities through intensive local services. This is while the global division focuses on villages in some of the world’s economically poorest countries where they take the lead in bringing education to their communities.

Cahill has spent months over the years helping construct schools in foreign regions. The BuildOn movement currently brings dedicated volunteers to eight countries including Burkina Faso, Haiti, Mali, Malawi, Nepal, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Senegal to establish over 2,000 schools.

“It’s a life changing experience because oftentimes these kids were the first people in their family in their community to even have a passport, let alone go to a third world country and have this experience that’s just so impactful on every level,” she states.  “It makes you feel like you are part of a world community. It is just so beautiful.”

There is gratitude for the storied journey this ambassador of goodwill continues to take throughout the world all comes from great pride and an understanding that she is truly blessed to be able to spend time giving back.

“It’s the gift that keeps giving,” Cahill reflects as she looks forward to her next volunteer assignment coming up in Senegal where her husband Paul will join.

Finding time to do it all takes creative efforts to complete, especially as her career in entertainment continues to blossom. But, for the performer there is simply no other option than to attempt it all and to do it with a smile.“Not only does working with BuildOn create a work life balance, but it makes me treasure both things more,” Cahill says about each time she donates her time to a project. “I come back to my home, and it makes me feel even more grateful for this life that I have that I’m already endlessly thankful for and it deepens my gratitude, my love. It’s a win, win on every level.”

If only there were more Cahill’s on this earth. Not all superheroes wear capes, but the ones who use their superpowers to empower mankind with blissful joy are the best ones of all.
