Broken Toy Hero Press Release

For Immediate Release

5 February 2021

Ashland, OH and Huntington, WV— 5 February 2021John Buckland has gone viral rescuing cat’s out of burning houses, speaking to students after a school shooting, carrying customized caskets when little heroes lost battles with terminal illnesses, speaking at assemblies, and advocating for virtues like kindness, responsibility, building healthy peer relationships, etc. Now, with Broken Toy Hero, he has created an affordable book to help kids through the Covid crisis. His concern for the overall well-being made the hero put down the cape and take on the pen. Since in person meetings aren’t accessible, like they were pre-Covid, John wants to share a message of hope with youngsters while they are dealing with our changing world.

John is a survivor and overcomer of child abuse, depression, bullying, addiction and self-destruction in his own life. He openly shares his story with the entire world at schools, churches, and large community events.

His passion is to inspire others to “repurpose their pain” as well. His work has been shared with millions by media outlets all over the world. His charity is a source of inspiration and compassion.
