Social Sunday: Deon Grant, Football Star and Philanthropist

Today, following  Friday's media debacle otherwise known as "TigerGate", Fashiona was fortunate enough to meet NFL safety Deon, #24 with the  Seattle Seahawks, who is as dedicated to the NFL as he is to philanthropy.

Fashiona was able to chat with Deon at  the  Moët and  Chandon Nectar Impèrial Rosè "Seal it with Rose' " Sunday Brunch.   Deon admittedly tired after a long season was very gracious with his time with the press including Alicia "aka" Fashiona.

Alicia "aka" Fashiona: Thanks for taking the time to talk with me.  You look very handsome in your baby blue shirt, great contrast with your dark skin.  Why a blue shirt and who are you wearing?

Deon: Thanks, honestly the blue shirt was a last minute decision. I get my clothes custom made in Paris. The shoes are Louis Vuitton. (He actually shows her the label with his name on it in his jacket).

Alicia "aka" loving this interview

Alicia "aka" Fashiona:  What brings you to the Moet event today?

Deon: I don't drink and never have because it is a personal choice of mine based some bad experiences I witnessed growing up in Augusta GA.  The brand is supportive of my foundation the Grant D Knowledge Foundation.

The Grant D Knowledge Foundation aims to teach youth in the Augusta and Atlanta Metro areas the importance of education. It provides philanthropic support and grants to nonprofit organizations that provide community based support services that address the educational needs of inner city children.

Alicia "aka" Fashiona:   Why is charity work and philanthropy so important to you?

Deon: Family is very important to me and  I feel it is my responsibility to give back to my community.  Kids need to see the possibilities in life outside whatever circumstances they are in.  During my off season, I make it a priority.

Alicia "aka" Fashiona: Again thanks for your time and enjoy the event.
