These humble beginnings made us who we are today, and because of this we are always inspired to give back,” says Jeremys Image of NovaStarz, “We are young, fun, spontaneous guys who want to spread positive energy to the world. It gave us great pleasure to be able to put a smile on the children’s faces and we are grateful for CeeLo Green, Gabrielle Dennis, Puma and Diamond Supply Co., for their support.”
