Jim Killon

Jim Killon is an American born humanitarian, author/writer, social concern photojournalist, artist and motivational speaker. In 2009 he left his native Baltimore and arrived in the Peruvian Andes where he fulfilled a dream and vision to help children living in destitution and despair. Today his project, Changes for New Hope reaches over 2000 children, bringing them value based inspiration through his "Do the Right Thing" initiative, art projects that build self esteem and have been exhibited in national museums, and the ubiquitous anemia and malnutrition issues are being addressed with vitamin distribution and anti-parasite medicine. Jim shares that apathy is humanity's most profound humiliation. No one can change the world but each of us can change a piece of it and help the less fortunate if we make it a priority.
