Krave Magazine Introduces the Krave King of Hearts Kalendar Benefitting Area Charities
Dallas, Texas, January 2012 – KRAVE Magazine® was introduced to the world by CEO & Publisher William T. Young in 2005. It is the only fashion, lifestyle and entertainment magazine specifically for the urban man with urbane taste. KRAVE Magazine® stands alone when it comes to men’s grooming and high fashion. In fact, there has been no other magazine geared towards upscale urban male style since. KRAVE Magazine® is proud to introduce its latest project with a heart, the Krave King of Hearts Kalendar available for purchase at http://www.kravemagazine.net.
The twelve-month Kalendar®, shot by celebrity photographer, Eric Ganison, represents the majestic glory of men of color not only on the outside but also on the inside. Young dedicates the Kalendar® to a very special role model in his life—-William T. Young Sr., his father, who passed away due to complications with cancer. A portion of all sales will be donated to area charities in his name.
Each male model is adorned with a “Krown” on his head, symbolizing strength and pride, a very powerful message that Krave wanted to pass on to young readers. They emphasized this message with the launch of the “The Makings of a King” essay contest in area high schools. KRAVE Magazine® selected three deserving young men as winners. The magazine then began including the now popularized krown shot at the end of all of its photo shoots.
Philanthropy is nothing new to KRAVE Magazine®. In October 2011, they launched the first annual Krave Fit Pink Issue. Krave Fit® is a brother magazine to KRAVE Magazine® with an emphasis on male health and fitness. The Pink Issue brought breast cancer awareness to the forefront for its readers and shared the story of a black male breast cancer survivor, Hulon Thompson. This was an eye-opener to many Krave readers because there are not many reported cases of male breast cancer. Young says, “There is a bigger purpose for all the Krown shots we’ve taken over the last year and we couldn’t think of any better purpose than raising money to benefit those in need.”
KRAVE Magazine® will be hosting, the first of many, Kalendar® signings in the publication’s home base of Dallas, TX on Saturday, February 11, 2012, Aloft Hotel, 10 pm – 2 am. Additional nationwide signings and promotions will be announced in the near future.
Krave & Krave Fit Magazines are bigger and better than ever. They are still meeting and exceeding the fashion and fitness needs of its readers.
