About Sir Darius Brown

Sir Darius Brown is a 15-year-old powerhouse teen social entrepreneur, speaker, shelter pet advocate, philanthropist, and the Founder of Beaux & Paws, where he designs and creates handmade stylish bow ties.


At age two, Sir Darius was diagnosed with speech comprehension and fine motor skills delay. However, he never let his challenges get in his way or stop him from accomplishing his goals. At the age of eight, his fine motor skills started to improve after he began assisting his older sister with cutting fabric and learning how to use a sewing machine. During this time is when he discovered his passion for making bow ties.


In 2017, Sir Darius was moved by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, and wanted to do his part to help. Learning that some rescue dogs were being transferred from the devastation in Texas and Puerto Rico to the ASPCA in NYC, Sir Darius thought of a unique way to use his passion to create bow ties to help displaced dogs look dapper and adorable. This helps increase their chances of being noticed and adopted faster into fur-ever homes.


During his visit to the adoption center, Sir Darius learned that hundreds of dogs are euthanized daily at some shelters due to overcrowding. He was devastated to learn this horrific reality. As a dog lover, this started Sir Darius’ PAW-SOME Mission to help save shelter pets' lives by donating his handmade bow ties to animal shelters across the nation, volunteering and participating in adoption events, and spotlighting shelter pets on his social media. As Sir Darius traveled to different shelters around the country, he realized many of them are underfunded, understaffed, and needs a lot of support caring for adoptable pets until they find forever homes. He knew he had to do something to help. In 2022, Sir Darius created and began donating "Wag Bags" which are personal bags for dogs and cats in shelters that are filled with essential items that are much needed, such as food, treats, bowls, toys, collars, leashes, waste bags, and more.






Sir Darius has used his platform to help raise over $300,000 to support animal shelters, sponsor adoption fees, donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to sponsor a Puppy Wish, create Wag Bags, and give thousands of bow ties to shelters and adoption centers across the USA and the United Kingdom. The PAW-SOME Mission has helped countless shelter pets find loving fur-ever families and homes!
