Carl Keyes is an internationally recognized humanitarian who has orchestrated some of the most significant emergency relief efforts in the history of the United States. His first response efforts in Hurricane Katrina and the September 11th crises were recognized formally by the United States Senate as his efforts were inserted into the Congressional Record of the United States.
Keyes is the Founder and Managing Director of AID for the World and has expanded his relief efforts to include people who live perpetual crisis everyday due to a lack of basic life necessities. He has spent 23 years of serving people both in the US and in 31 different countries as well as nine years of living in Bushwick, Brooklyn serving the downtrodden and then eleven years as Pastor of Glad Tidings in Manhattan, the oldest Pentecostal church in NYC.
Currently, the revitalization of US Cities is at the forefront of his mission as he is bringing sustainable economic and ecological development to areas of the country hardest hit by the floundering economy. From retooling factories to developing marketing plans, He and his Team form collaborative creative meetings to building a better mouse trap, with his concept of “Three Minds.” Keyes and his dreams of resurrecting the poorest of our Nation are becoming a reality as he travels with a Bible in one hand and a dream in the other.
Carl and Donna Keyes have been married 30 years and have two sons Matthew and Ryan.
