WHAT B.R.O.W.N. MEANS...

BROWN “Brave Respectful Optimistic Wise and Noble”

…and DADS “Dedicated Attentive Determined Squad” the squad “fathers” wish upon!

Recommending these Brown Dads for an Applause Profile:

Nominated by their children, neighbors and friends, these men are helping to bring a change to our perceptions of male parents—and our observations of them. Nothing against “fathers” but Brown Dads is the squad “fathers” wish upon a star!

I am proud of our remarkable Brown Dads who we have profiled. From all walks of life, and we call them our “Brown Dad”honorees.

​I began this tradition in 2000 after I became a dad—and now I am very proud to share our fraternity formed in 2009 with other Brown Dads who are proud and deserving of the title “Dad”—and these men exist all over the world.


Nothing against “fathers” but Brown Dads is the squad “fathers” wish upon a star!

Children are living proof that our true nature is that of love, curiosity and focus.  I never took a course on peak performance, but I make an effort to be polite to all and to exude all the qualities that most people look for. As an adult, I don’t lack it, but I often block it with overthinking. After may first I knew I’d be tired most days, but I never knew how much I wouldn't even mind. Even if they wake me up hours before I’m ready by screaming my name relentlessly or climbing on top of me begging for my attention. It’s just not possible to stay angry at them because they're mine and they call me DAD! And so my kids are magical...once I come home (after a long work day), and I hear the joyous echoes of "Dad's Home!" I'm feeling rejuvenate.
I Am A PROUD B.R.O.W.N. DAD!

The color brown is significant to us in many ways. However, its importance is primarily because it is the color of earth. The color Brown is associated with all things natural and organic. Men, dads who are featured here are individuals who are confident in themselves and in their ability to make their way, especially when they need to. They are confident in that ability of theirs no matter how difficult the obstacles that are presented in their way.
