Beauty Mogul Supa Cent Helps Break Guinness World Record For Largest Toy Giveaway
The New Orleans entrepreneur teamed up with fellow mogul Jesseca Dupart to give away over 5,000 toys.
After a Cyber Monday sale that saw her gross over a million dollars in revenue, Raynell “Supa Cent” Steward is grateful for a lot. With the spirit of giving in the air, the entrepreneur collaborated with Jesseca Dupart of Kaleidoscope Hair Products in their hometown of New Orleans on Sunday to give away the most toys in the history of Guinness World Records, Atlanta Black Star reports.
Steward and Dupart held the giveaway at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to ensure there was ample space for those in need. The venue turned out to be a wise choice because they had thousands of toys to give away.
Steward and Dupart broke records with their act of charity by giving away 5,019 toys in just one hour. The previous record for a toy giveaway was set in Hong Kong, where 3,000 toys were given away in the same time frame.

Doubling down on their act of kindness, Steward made sure no one went home empty-handed. Volunteers who worked the event were given bags full of leftover presents.
"Shout out to Supa," one volunteer said in a video posted to Instagram. "We ain't gotta buy nothing else."
A representative from Guinness was on hand to celebrate the women's generosity:
And the New Orleans Police Department, one of the giveaway's sponsors, gave Steward a special award for her commitment to community service. The businesswoman celebrated the award on Instagram, writing, "Police never gave me nothing but charges so you know I’m bucked."
As Nola.com reports, Steward wasn't done playing Santa. After leaving the football stadium, she posted a video on Instagram where she presented her mother with a fantastic early Christmas gift at a fancy dinner: a new house.
After breaking out as a social media star, Steward flexed her entrepreneurial muscles with The Crayon Case, a line of makeup inspired by the nostalgia of school arts and crafts products.
The line has been successful, and Steward has continued to captivate her fans with new social media content, documenting all aspects of her life, including what it has been like making the shift from waitress to CEO of a lucrative cosmetics business.
