Let’s Start Giving

“If you cannot feed a hundred people, then feed just one” Aesop

LaVida Harris, Contributing Editor & Reneigh Coffman, Community Iniative Director & Tony McGilvery Jr. Weight2Wear Brand Ambassodor (not pictured) supported Lets Start Giving Foundation on 12/23/17 by helping feed the homeless in downtown Dallas.

Lets Start Giving Foundation is a non-profit organization founded a year ago by then 9yr old Alaia Stinson, that helps the homeless and those at risk homelessness. Alaia’s hopes and dream is to one day have a shelter to help the homeless to have a roof over their head, even if it’s just temporar for them

This young girl has truly inspired us to do more in our communities. Please join us us by supporting them first with a simple “like” to their page and secondly support any upcoming “giving days” in 2018; you can support them financially to help this young girl’s desires to continue to give to the less fortunate and/or you may donate your time. Please contact them directly for their needs.

If you missed the unveiling of the 2012 King of Hearts Kalendar on 2-11-12, here is a glimpse of that night. The Kalendar guys introduce themselves by their month.

Since the unveiling of the Kalendar, “Mr. July”, Tony Weathers (called by his friends T-Dubb or Weatherman)  has passed away. Tony entered this life on May 26, 1981. Tony was a quiet young man,however you could hear him loud and clear through his wonderful smile, kind spirit and great voice as you will hear a sample on the video. Click picture to view video.

Press Release: 2012 “Kings of Hearts” Kalendar





For Immediate Release – January 9, 2012                                             



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  


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.  For more information on KRAVE Magazine® please visit them online at  Also please like them on Facebook at For  sponsorship info for the Kalendar signing party please contact LaVida Harris at
