KaBOOM! CEO & Co-Founder Darell Hammond provides commentary in support of CNN Heroes

As families gather for the Thanksgiving holiday, KaBOOM! CEO & Co-Founder Darell Hammond invites you to join us in honoring and recognizing outstanding volunteerism in the U.S. and throughout the world.

Hammond offered online commentary in support of CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute, which will air on Thanksgiving night, Nov. 27 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). Hosted by Anderson Cooper, the program recognizes ordinary citizens whose extraordinary deeds are making a difference in their communities and beyond.

After receiving nearly 4,000 submissions from 75 countries, a Blue Ribbon Panel including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Dr. Jane Goodall, Queen Rania Al Abdullah, Franklin Graham, Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson and George Lopez (to name a few) selected this year’s Top 10 CNN Heroes. Each honoree will receive a $25,000 award for his/her organization.

We encourage you to tune in to CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute on Thanksgiving night. For more information, please visit
