Las Vegas, Nevada, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — “A phenomenal 7-year-old philanthropist, social entrepreneur and youth influencer, Justyn Boumah is the youngest internationally awarded African-American author, CEO of Traveling Toddler, and Founder of the 501c3 non-profit organization, Heroes & Hearts.

With ingenuity and care, Justyn continually uses her talents and creativity to educate, empower and encourage underserved communities through literacy, food awareness and special projects. Justyn was recently featured on NBC Nightly News Kids Edition with Lester Holt for extending his blessing project to homeschooling and retired teachers where he gave each of them his signature thank you bags, which included handmade notes and cards filled with some of Justyn’s favorite things like M&Ms, Goldfish Crackers, chewing gum, pencils, pens and more. Additionally, he hosted his infamous Blessing Breakfast to express his gratitude and appreciation to these dedicated and hardworking teachers.

Now, this young hero continues his mission to help marginalized people by hosting his first hybrid Rock, Paper, Scissors fundraising tournament! Join the #kidshelpingkids party by registering at www.heroesandhearts.org and selecting “PLAYERS JOIN THE TOURNAMENT” before Friday, July 15, 2022. We have children from all over the world joining us! The event will take place on Sunday, July 24, 2022 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. PST in Las Vegas, NV. Children, teens, adults, families and businesses will help raise funds by paying a small entrance fee or donating toys, books, school supplies, diapers and food, to support young Ukrainian refugees as part of the Justyn’s Hearts for Ukraine project.
