Real hot girls know how to give back!
Megan Thee Stallion and Fashion Nova continue to give back through the nonprofit leg of the leading e-commerce fashion lifestyle brand, Fashion Nova Cares, reports Black Enterprise.
This time, they’re donating $25,000 to North Carolina-based HBCU, Bennett College. In honor of this past Women’s History Month, the funds will go toward Bennett’s Center for Entrepreneurial Studies to support and encourage future initiatives among students.
“What a time to be a woman, specifically a Black woman,” said Suzanne E. Walsh, president of Bennett College, according to Black Enterprise. “I am truly appreciative that Bennett [College] was not only selected but pre-selected to receive and participate in Fashion Nova’s new philanthropic initiative, “Women On Top.” This donation coordinates perfectly with who we are and what we represent as a historical higher education institution for women.”

Bennett officials explained that throughout March, Fashion Nova Cares has pledged to highlight, support, and donate $1,000,000 to female-focused charities and organizations, various educational institutions, female students, women entrepreneurs, and women-owned businesses.
The donation will also help to encourage and support students who have dreams of being an entrepreneur.
According to the college, the Department of Business, Economics, and Entrepreneurship has hand-selected three students to highlight. Bennett’s bright entrepreneurial standouts include Janeal Marshall, an influencer and freelance makeup artist; Zauria Murphy, the CEO and founder of Satin Skin Co., a homemade luxury skincare and self-care business; and Aariella Houston, the CEO and founder of apparel company, Zage Apparel.
Other HBCUs included in the initiative include Norfolk State University, North Carolina A&T, and Virginia State University.
