D'IYANU Gives Back 2019

Well before D’IYANU was founded, CEO Addie Elabor yearned to live a fruitful and impactful life by giving back to her community. As a Nigerian born American, she recognizes her move to the US as being a blessing. Thankful for the experiences that’s led to her success, Addie strives to inspire others with her positive influence and clothing line, D’IYANU.

In line with D’IYANU’s core value of giving back, the company recently launched an initiative to give $4000 quarterly to one or two organizations making a positive impact in their community. Through charitable efforts, the fashion brand plans to grant opportunities that may not have been otherwise afforded to disadvantaged men, women and youth. Ultimately, their desire is to see their community rise.

The selection process to find impactful community-based non-profits, heavily involved their customers. They were contacted for their valued suggestions and D'IYANU thanks them for their helping hand. After deep consideration, this quarter, D'IYANU will sponsor the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia and The Women’s Safe House.

Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia’s impact in the lives of children spans 132 years, since its commencement in 1887. The franchise’s mission centers around inclusion--providing equal opportunities to children of all races, gender, ages, sexual orientation, religion and class. Success is guaranteed for every young person that graces their facility. D'IYANU wholeheartedly support the non-profit's commitment to see young people excel as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. D’IYANU's core values align with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia. The donation will be allocated to their many youth programs.

The Women's Safe House

The Women’s Safe House’s objective is to “provide safe shelter and transitional living services to battered women and their dependent children.” We admire their determination to educate and empower women about their choices for the future. Since 1977, the facility has served as a haven for women and families in danger and fleeing domestic violence. The 501( c ) (3) non-profit organization is open 24-7, with the capability to house 400-600 women and children annually. D'IYANU is elated to donate to such an important cause.
