Music & Film Executive Honored for Charitable Work
LONDON, April 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — As the world turns its attention to Buckingham Palace in anticipation of the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and Her Majesty The Queen Consort, Dani Stephenson reflects on receiving the Platinum Champion honor.
Stephenson received a uniquely designed Platinum Champion Jubilee pin and a signed certificate from Her Majesty The Queen Consort on behalf of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. With over five thousand nominations for the prestigious honor, Dani was handpicked by an esteemed panel of judges that included Ade Adepitan (MBE), Gyles Brandreth, Elaine Paige (OBE), Felicity Kendal (CBE), Julie Siddiqi (MBE), Myleene Klass, and Her Majesty The Queen Consort herself.
Stephenson was recognized for his work with Straight Forward Giving, the charity he founded in 2015. The organization’s initiatives have helped thousands of people from underprivileged and deprived communities receive access to education and mentorship while taking strides to facilitate social mobility through the power of music, film, and art.
Realizing the importance of volunteering early on, Stephenson started donating his time at the age of 16. He continues to volunteer for charities like the Prince’s Trust Foundation as a mentor, UNICEF, LEWA, Street Child, and The Royal Versailles Ball at the Palace of Versailles as Patron. On Feb 8 2022, Dani was awarded the prestigious “Points of Light” for his charity’s continued nationwide contributions.
