RAD, a female-founded social enterprise that celebrates culture through cause by driving impact for charities, shared a video of TRAVIS SCOTT receiving a RAD Impact Award. The RAD Impact Awards honor cultural icons who inspire purpose. Other awardees include Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Laverne Cox.
TRAVIS SCOTT is using his RAD Impact Award to provide several Waymon Webster scholarships to empower and enrich deserving students at HBCUs through his Cactus Jack Foundation. His honoree is Raquel Simpson, a sophomore at Howard University, who he selected to receive the first scholarship in this series. The Cactus Jack Foundation believes the youth should not be prevented from attaining their lifetime goal and is committed to extending educational opportunities to all, regardless of their circumstances to achieve their dreams.
RAD has partnered with Luxury Stores at Amazon, a new shopping experience for both well-established and emerging luxury fashion and beauty brands, to underwrite the impact donations for the five charities chosen by the RAD Impact Awardees. Luxury Stores is providing additional support by creating a shop dedicated to the awards season and guest curated by Sarah Andelman, called the RAD Impact Edit. The new storefront presents an ‘awards at home’ theme and features luxury brands including Altuzarra, Aquazzura, Car Shoe, Charlotte Chesnais, Charvet, Clé de Peau, CVC Stones, Deveaux, Dundas, Elie Saab, For Restless Sleepers, L/Uniform, La Bouche Rouge, La Perla, Marina Moscone, Mark Cross, Mateo, Oscar de la Renta, Révive, Rodarte, Roland Mouret, and an assortment of luxury beauty brands from multi-brand retailer, The Conservatory. Luxury Stores is donating to the RAD Impact Award charities, including 100% of Amazon’s sales proceeds from the RAD Impact Edit between 4/22-4/30. Customers can visit the Amazon mobile app, then enter “Luxury Stores” in the search bar to shop the RAD Impact Edit.”
