Chanel Adams of Guyanese parentage is creating a positive impact through her charity
Chanel Adams, of Guyanese parentage, is the founder of the non-profit, The SlimHeart Campaign.
She lives by these words “It’s the little things that are appreciated the most.”
In 2012 Adams launched ,The SlimHeart Campaign which is the networking and charitable outlet to help non-profit organizations raise awareness and strengthen relationships, while emphasizing the importance of youth giving back to their communities.
The SlimHeart Campaign’s signature event, “The Soul to Sole Shoe Drive,” is an annual shoe drive that collects new and gently-worn dress shoes for young teens that are in need for prom. Once the shoes are collected, Adams and her team distribute them to various organizations hosting prom drives in the New York State area, including Junior League of Brooklyn, Princess Chambers Inc., and Sen. Kevin Parker’s Prom Dress Giveaway. This year Adams said she and her team collected more than 900 pairs of dress shoes

Chanel said her public relations boutique helps Brooklyn start-ups tell their unique stories and elevate brands appeal through social media, creative media strategies, and event planning and media production.
