Kevin Livingston may look like a regular middle class guy with a nice truck, but if people really knew who he was and what he’s hauling around in that truck – they’d be very surprised! Livingston, a community organizer in New York City is the CEO of ‘100 Suits for 100 Men’ suits in which he carries around in the back of his truck; not to take to the nearest goodwill but to set up a rack at a store front in high-crime neighborhoods to give them out FREE to young as well as not so young men.
It could be retail, It could be restaurant – You put on a suit? And you automatically stand out.
Kevin Livingston, CEO 100 Suits for 100 Men
Due to Kevin’s passion for helping young men “succeed” his donation-based business caught the attention of judges, retired district attorney’s and celebrities such as Colin Kaepernick, Snoop Dogg, Charlamagne tha God and more. So, you might be asking “Well, what if the suits don’t fit?” Livingston, even has that taken care of; he has a tailor there on the spot, to take measurements! How Awesome is That!!
There’s no cost for any of the services provided and once the men sign up, Livingston goes to work by not only getting them fitted for the suit but he also teaches them how to tie a tie as well. And that’s not all! Livingston has the men to sign up, so he can follow up and check in with the guys to see how their doing. No young man will get left behind with just a suit, because to Livingston, this is a life changing program for young to not only be great but to understand the greatness they walk in.
When the young men leave, they not only leave with a tailor made suit but they leave with a new lease on life, knowing that someone wants to engage with them and help them succeed – Hats off to Kevin Livingston for following his passion and giving our young men, no matter the background or race a chance to be seen and respected by the world.
