I started this series to introduce you to the movers and shakers in imaging, and that's definitely today's guest, But he's been going one step further with his focus on a life-changing direction of giving back. Chicago-based Kevin Kuster joins me, and he's a testimonial to the power of social media, too - especially when it comes to growing friendships.
We met online just before ClickCon in Chicago in 2019 and then live at the convention that year. Our friendship simply grew, as did my respect for him. Kevin's one of the founders of Watts of Love, and there are too many of you who don't know about this organization.
From their website, here's how they describe their ability to empower communities around the world:
Financial independence is a foreign concept to those living in pervasive poverty. We break the cycle of poverty and help people create their own vision for economic independence.
Kevin is no stranger to SCU. He's been featured in a half-dozen different posts since 2019. They're all just a click away. The image Kevin shared was captured nine years ago on his first trip with the organization. Visit the Watts of Love website with a click on Kevin's favorite image, or their logo below.
The service you do for others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.
I hope you'll take the time to listen to Kevin's story. Then you'll understand why his "rent" is paid in full for a long time to come!
