27th May 2017: Philanthropist Sylvia Mantella, Chief Marketing officer of Mantella Corporation receives the Inaugural U for Change Champion Award. She’s an animal lover, a beauty with a warm and generous heart and an undying passion for fashion.
While doing her philanthrophical work in the last ten years she’s often asked how does one give back ? “It takes one person to give back” says Syliva. “If there are 6 million people and we take even half of that population for example and make one person commit to a $1 donation a month for a year then that’s $360 million raised”.
The award was followed by video presentations and a fashion show by U for Change fashion program grads. UforChange provides young people in Toronto with a series of high-impact, hands-on creative workshops led by a team of professional creative mentors.
