LEADERS OF TOMORROW  – AWARD RECIPIENTlogo
Tyler Fazzari has a big heart. When Hurricane Sandy tore through Long Island, forcing his great grandparents out of their home, he wanted to make a difference and created “BirthdayBack.” Instead of gifts, guests were asked to make donations to Long Beach’s East Elementary School. Tyler raised over $20,000, including a donation of a SMART Board. In 2013, Tyler “BirthdayBacked” Nassau Suffolk Services for Autism, raising almost $1,000. In 2014, Tyler invited his entire fifth grade class to support The Wounded Warrior Project. More than 100 kids raised over $3,000 and WWP named Tyler a Student Ambassador. For Tyler’s twelfth birthday, he raised more than $30,000 in much-needed products and monies for The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network).
