2018 Philanthropists of the Year
Charles and Kinshasa Watson believe that charity and philanthropy provide an avenue to demonstrate love for one’s fellow man in an increasingly divisive and materialistic world.
He’s the director of Product Development for C Spire, and she is the owner of Allow Me Design Group.
Kinshasa, recalling her own childhood, said her family benefitted from programs offered to the underprivileged, so helping others in need, in turn, has always been a priority.
The Watsons volunteer and help raise money for many organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, The Salvation Army, Stewpot, Catholic Charities, and the International Ballet Competition. They also host workshops for young girls through their daughter’s nonprofit, Kaitlyn Cares.
The Watsons are the parents of Kaitlyn and Charles Douglas III.
