Personal life story and mission to help charities
At present, Charles does not generate any revenue for himself when he interviews celebrities or curates celebrity events. Perhaps in the future, Charles will monetize these celebrity interviews but he is currently content with doing them for free in a bid to help motivate listeners, readers, and viewers. What drives him the most is his desire to provide for others largely because of his past and how he would have been destitute if people had not shown him kindness. It’s well documented that he lost his biological mother and father in subsequent years at ages 12 and 13 respectively. He lost his mother at the age of 12 and his father at the age of 13. By the time he was 14, Charles had also lost all 4 grandparents. That said, Charles was fortunate to be blessed with an exceptional extended family. His aunt and uncle were such monumental parental figures in his life. Even after losing his biological parents, he still felt loved and cherished by his remaining relatives. Charles fully acknowledges that many orphans in his position were not as fortunate as he was and often go on to become homeless and destitute. This realization is a big factor in why charity is extremely important to him. Charles envisages utilizing his rising community of celebrity peers to help generate awareness for obscure or unknown charities, help with fundraising for charities, help initiate charity campaigns and also motivate the less fortunate to keep fighting in life. He has a very soft spot for orphanages having been an orphan himself. He has donated to and also served a plethora of charities/foundations over the years.
Charles started actively donating to charitable causes as early as the age of 13. He would save up to 50 cents every day by opting to walk instead of using transport when traveling to and from terminals en route to his school. Each year since the age of 13, he would raise over a hundred US dollars. He gave all of the money he would make to homeless people, charities, and church offerings. At the time, Charles was based in Zimbabwe after relocating from Botswana following the untimely death of both his parents. His childhood was very emotionally challenging because of the loss of his parents. Having loving relatives certainly helped Charles cope much better with the loss of his beloved parents. His uncle whom he sees as a father figure is a strong factor behind the faith that Charles has in God. His uncle’s huge levels of faith and integrity helped shape the man Charles is today. His aunt is equally as devout a believer in God and Charles adores her profoundly. She helped nurture him from a vulnerable little orphan into a strong God-fearing man.
As the years progressed, Charles began to see the hand of God more and more. He emerged as an actuarial scientist, #1 best-selling author, and a celebrity host as well as becoming an international keynote speaker. He credits everything to his faith in Christ and has seen God provide for him numerous times through the kindness of close relatives, friends, and in some cases strangers. As such, Charles desperately wants to contribute more to several charities because he once was in need of charity. He believes none of his experiences was a mistake and those experiences harnessed his passion to help provide for orphans, widows, refugees, health patients, and destitute people all over the world.
