Justyn Boumah went the extra mile to ensure workers around his city are shown gratitude during these difficult times. The 5-year-old held a community service called the Blessing Project, and surprised the city workers with snacks and candy.

He went around the city handing out the goody bags to sanitation workers, police officers, trash truck drivers, and construction workers.

ESSENTIAL WORKERS RECOGNIZED

During his interview on People’s Tuesday episode (the TV Show!), he shared why he decided to initiate the cause and recognize the workers saying:

“I didn’t see any community workers being thanked. So I thanked them!”

The little boy was joined by his mother, Racquel Boumah, who said, "If we don't appreciate our community workers and realize they work hard for us every single day, we may not have them anymore."

Justyn has also recently launched the nonprofit, Heroes & Hearts. The organization aims to create awareness about literacy through library openings and read-a-thons.

Amid the ongoing pandemic, The San Antonio Chamber of Commerce also took time to appreciate essential local employees in the city by urging residents to show them support.

The Chamber requested people to express gratitude to essential workers by capturing a show of thanks, including making heart hands, lawn, or car decoration, recording a video and sharing it on social media using the #weheartSAheroes.

CHARITY WORK

Meanwhile, John Cena has also helped more than 600 kids' lives better through Make-A-Wish, a nonprofit organization that assists in granting life-changing wishes for critically ill children.

When the now 44-year-old was made aware of what the organization stood for, he went above and beyond to prioritize charity work above else in the future.

RAISING MONEY

Another individual, John Carreone, rode 80 miles in his bike to raise money for the organization mentioned above that helped his daughter Celina who was born with a nervous system disorder.

Carreone raised $30,000 for the nonprofit, which will make wishes for other kids come true. The money also sent Celina and her family to Disney World when she was 12 years old.
