59: Charles Kelley, Bridge Builders International

Charles Kelley is the founder and president of Bridge Builder International. A Latvian-American with dual citizenship, he connects Latvian and North American businesses, churches, educators, medical professionals, artists, and humanitarians to partner for mutual advancement. He is a popular speaker, author, and host of the My Riga video series.

Recently back from a six-week trip to Europe, where he led the Artist Network at the European Leadership Forum in Wisla, Poland, Charles gained an experiential understanding of the conflict in Ukraine and the impact it is having on European nations, including Latvia, which like Ukraine, was formerly part of the Soviet Union. His organization is bringing much needed clothing, medical aid, food and water to the Ukraine border and helping Ukrainian refugees resettle in Latvia by assisting with documentation, housing, employment and socialization.
