Our Story

 

Balloon Zoom started as party business founded by Fataima's three daughters, Anna, Leila and Noor.  When the three began twisting balloons, they wanted to build a business that was not only fun, but also gave back to their community. They have donated their balloon art to Janney Elementary, Alice Deal Middle and Woodrow Wilson High schools, and locally-based Prana for Preemies, purchased coats for Washington, DC, children in need, and groceries for refugee families building new lives in our area.

 

Anna is now a freshman at The Ohio State University.  Leila and Noor contract with Balloon Zoom as their schedules permit.

Leila, 16, was a the driving force behind Balloon Zoom's first charitable project: donating goats, chickens, ducks and goslings to families in need through Heifer International.

 

Today, Leila works for Tenleytown MainStreet, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building the small business community in her neighborhood. She remains involved with Balloon Zoom as an independent contractor.
