On September 22, 2020, DRK Beauty Healing and our proud partner, Cynthia Erivo, multi-award-winning actress and singer, hosted our successful Slumber Party virtual fundraiser to raise money to continue giving away free therapy to womxn of color in the U.S. impacted by COVID-19 and racial injustice.
Alongside co-host, La La Anthony, several special guests including Michelle Williams, Jessica Marie Garcia, Yaya Dacosta, Grace Harry, Chris Miss, Lula Dualeh, Dr. Christine Coleman, Dr. Akua Boateng and Caren Howard from Mental Health America joined to support the cause. Their open dialogue on mental health, wellness and activism was truly authentic, inspiring and well-received.
We had a great turn out but more importantly, many people had expressed such positive and heartfelt messages. Not only did we effectively shed light on some critical topics for our community, but we are pleased to announce that we raised over $130,000 towards DRK Beauty Healing.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout our journey leading up to this moment! We are beyond grateful for the number of womxn of color that we are going to be able to help with the funds. We are also aware that our work doesn’t stop here. Team DRK Beauty is keen on and looking forward to continuing our fundraising efforts to maximize the impact of this meaningful work.
With love and sincere gratitude,
Team DRK Beauty
