Personal life story and mission to help charities
Currently, Charles does not generate any income for himself when interviewing celebrities or hosting celebrity events. Maybe in the future, Charles will monetize these celebrity interviews, but he’s currently just doing them for free in an effort to help engage listeners, readers, and viewers. What drives him the most is his desire to provide for others largely because of his past and how destitute he would have been had people not shown him kindness. It is well documented that he lost his biological mother and father in the following years at the age of 12 and 13 respectively. He lost his mother when he was 12 and his father when he was 13. By the age of 14, Charles had also lost his 4 grandparents. That said, Charles was fortunate to be blessed with an exceptional extended family. Her aunt and uncle were such monumental parental figures in her life. Even after losing his biological parents, he still felt loved and cherished by his remaining relatives. Charles fully recognizes that many orphans in his position have not been as fortunate as him and often become homeless and destitute. This awareness is a big part of why charity is extremely important to him. Charles plans to use his growing community of celebrity peers to help raise awareness of obscure or unknown charities, help raise money for charities, help launch charity campaigns and also motivate those less fortunate to keep fighting in life. He has a weakness for orphanages having himself been an orphan. He has donated and also served a plethora of charities/foundations over the years.
Charles began donating to charitable causes when he was 13 years old. He was saving up to 50 cents a day by choosing to walk instead of using transport when he traveled to terminals en route to his school. Every year since the age of 13, he raised more than a hundred US dollars. He gave all the money he would earn to the homeless, to charities and to church offerings. At the time, Charles was based in Zimbabwe having moved from Botswana following the untimely deaths of both his parents. His childhood was very difficult emotionally because of the loss of his parents. Having loving parents certainly helped Charles better cope with the loss of his beloved parents. His uncle whom he considers a father figure is an important factor behind Charles’ faith in God. His uncle’s enormous level of faith and integrity helped shape the man Charles is today. His aunt is also a devout believer in God and Charles adores her deeply. She helped transform him from a small, vulnerable orphan into a God-fearing strongman.
Over the years, Charles began to see more and more of God’s hand. He became an actuarial scientist, a number 1 bestselling author and a famous broadcaster, in addition to becoming an international speaker. He credits everything to his faith in Christ and has seen God provide for him many times through the kindness of close relatives, friends and, in some cases, strangers. As such, Charles desperately wants to contribute more to several charities as he once needed charity. He believes that none of his experiences were wrong and that these experiences have harnessed his passion to help provide for the needs of orphans, widows, refugees, the sick and the destitute all over the world.
