Sunday Best Season 2 winner and DC area-based songstress Y’Anna Crawley has always made a constant effort to give back in any capacity she can find. Being socially responsible is very important for her and will remain a part of who she is forever. Late last year Y’Anna partnered with Saving Our Daughters and Covenant House for “Yell Confidence….Starting with the Sole”. Once again, she is partnering with these two organizations.
Like so many artist and celebrities, Y’Anna Crawley has a countless numbers of dresses, accessories and other wardrobe items that have been photographed on red carpets, television programming and photo shoots. Often times these items sit in closets for years and are never seen again.
Y'Anna is donating some of her wardrobe options that have been worn to awards shows and performances to The Covenant House Broadway Presentation. This presentation is put on by The Covenant House and Saving Our Daughters and takes place each June in New York City. Y’Anna will be inviting some of her celebrity friends to also pay it forward by donating their wardrobe items.
Covenant House was founded in 1972 with the simple, profound mission to help homeless kids escape the streets. To break the cycle of chronic adult homelessness and bridge the gap of support in the lives of our youth, Covenant House has developed three core services known as their Continuum of Care: Street Outreach, Crisis Care, and Rights of Passage. Last year, Covenant House Street Outreach Teams and Residential and Community Service Center programs cared for over 50,000 at-risk and homeless kids in 21 cities in the United States, Canada, and Central America.

Saving Our Daughters is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose philosophy is to build a movement that begins with experiential literacy and effortlessly flows into recurring civil actions (words and actions).
