“God has been so good to us both. It just felt right.” That’s what Pinky Cole, the creator of the plant-based burger restaurant Slutty Vegan, said about her and fellow entrepreneur Stacey Lee giving back to 30 Clark Atlanta University students in need at the black university, paying off their debt, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Lee is the owner of Harlem Hops.
Both Cole and Lee are graduates of CAU, and also members of Delta Sigma Theta. After discussing their matriculation in college and its ups and downs the pair decided to join together to give back and surprise these CAU seniors.
“Growing up in a single-family household, and being the first to go to college, I know what it feels like to not know where the money is coming from,” Cole said. “But there were people who believed in me despite my circumstances and I wanted to be that person for someone else.”
