BIO OF SIR DARIUS BROWN
Sir Darius Brown the 12-year-old with a heart of gold is an entrepreneur, speaker, actor, philanthropist, honor roll student, impeccable dresser and founder of Beaux & Paws. He specializes in designing hand made custom bow ties for dogs, cats, and people.
At the age of 2, Sir Darius was diagnosed with speech, comprehension, and fine motor skills delay but he never let his challenges stop him from accomplishing any of his goals. Sir Darius became interested in making bow ties when he was 8 years old while watching his sister sew. He started to assist her by cutting the fabric to help improve his fine motor skills.
Shortly after he started designing and selling bow ties to family, friends, and at vendoring events.
In 2017, Sir Darius became emotional and was moved by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma and wanted to do something to help. Learning that some rescue dogs were being transferred from the devastation in Texas and Puerto Rico to the ASPCA in NYC as well as other shelters, Sir Darius decided to donate bow ties to these displaced dogs to help them look attractive and fashionable in hopes of getting them adopted faster and finding their new FUR-ever homes. During this time Sir Darius learned that every year thousands of dogs are euthanized at some shelters if they are not adopted in time due to limited space. When he learned of this horrific act he was beyond devastated. A dog lover himself, this was the beginning of Sir Darius's mission to help dogs and cats across the nation as much as he could.
Sir Darius has donated countless bow ties to animal shelters and adoption centers across the USA and in the United Kingdom.
Former President Barack Obama learned of Sir Darius and his mission, sending him a letter of recognition for his compassion, efforts, achievements and his commitment to service. Sir Darius has received support, encouragement and have designed bow ties for former NBA All-Star Allen Houston, motivational speaker Les Brown, Michael Strahan, Walt Frazier, Scott Perry, The NY Knicks, NY Giants, actress Kenya Moore, Tiffany "The Budgestnista", Radio host DeJa Vu just to name a few. He has also received the Leadership Award from "Leaders of the Future No Limits", Outstanding Achievement Award from the "WDIB Conference", the Youth Changer Award from "Excel Honors" and he will be receiving the Jasmina Anema Youth Award from the "Black Cotton Foundation" July 2019
