Dad of the Month: January 2019

Written by Michael Bonner

When I created the Dad of the Month club, I had one goal in mind. To recognize and thank hard working men for their effort and dedication as fathers.

I don’t know if I’m the right person for the job. I do know, however, that a lot of fathers deserve this award. My hope is that every time we choose a Dad of the Month, we also raise awareness and celebrate the achievements of other well deserving fathers.

So, who is our very first Dad of the Month?

Say Hello to Diony Marte

The first time I heard about Diony and his beautiful 6 yr old daughter, Lillianna, I was driving for Lyft in Las Vegas. I had picked up a passenger named Jahar and on the way to his destination, we started talking about my blog,

Before we were even done with the conversation, Jahar gets on the phone, calls Diony in New York and makes the introduction by handing the phone over to me (no, I wasn’t driving at the time). We said hello, good bye and exchanged contact information.

Why can’t meeting and dating someone be that easy?

Anyways, I knew that Diony was a father but not much more than that. In between my rides, I checked out his profile on Instagram and that’s when I discovered the amazing life of…

The Daddy and Daughter Crew

Diony is the founder of Daddy & Daughter Crew Clothing; an apparel clothing line designed for fathers with daughters across the world. In his own words, Diony believes that the role and definition of a great father is being redefined and created Daddy & Daughter Crew Clothing to give fathers raising daughters the credit they deserve.

To better understand why Diony is an easy choice for Dad of the Month, all you have to do is look at his Instagram and YouTube page(s). He is 100% committed as a father. He also serves to inspire other dads as a positive role model through Daddy & Daughter Crew Clothing.

Congratulations Diony Marte! You are Dad of the Month for January 2019 and thank you for being such an amazing father!

Feel free to follow Diony’s Instagram, send him a message and check out his YouTube page.
