Event cancellations have become an ongoing reaction throughout 2020, even for non-profit organizations. With school systems primarily functioning remotely, a lot of the back to school drive events were cancelled or postponed this year. These circumstances left the Heaven Help One Help All Foundation with a critical decision to make. After careful consideration, the celebrity teen decided not to cancel her back to school drive event. Instead, Heaven chose to focus on the only thing she has been able to control throughout all of this, continuing to lend a helping hand to the members of her community with the hopes of bringing joy to someone else's life. On August 7th, Heaven put on her mask and handed out backpacks in the 6th annual Heaven Help One Help All Back To School Bash. This was the first event the foundation hosted since the COVID-19 relief support event that fed a population of homeless people across the Atlanta area in early April.
As a teen actress, model, author, and philanthropist, everything Heaven does is centered around bringing joy to others. After months of quarantine, and not being able to enjoy everything she loves to do, Heaven knew she had made the right decision.
In fact, difficult decisions like this one, are the foundation of who Heaven is as a person and a professional. She bravely faces every obstacle head on and finds a way to conquer the adversity even when she is required to pivot at the last minute.
In 2019, Heaven was nominated for the RICE (Rising In Community Excellence) Awards in Atlanta for Youth Achiever Of The Year on behalf of the Heaven Help One Help All Foundation. RICE Award nominations are earned through dedication, sacrifices, and contributions. The nominees are held to a high standard for being outstanding citizens who work tirelessly to serve their communities in Atlanta and beyond. The award ceremony is held annually and Heaven not only has hopes of being nominated again, but she is determined to continue her service toward making an impact.
Although Heaven is putting back to school in her rear-view-mirror, she will continue to find ways to brighten faces throughout her community in front of and away from the bright lights.
