Bestselling Author of Kindness Diaries to Speak at CAC Legacy Luncheon
CONROE, TX – Leon Logothetis, bestselling author and host of the Netflix series The Kindness Diaries, will share his journey traveling the world looking for the kindness in others on at the 2019 Community Assistance Center (CAC) Legacy Luncheon Friday, May 10 at the Palmer Legacy Ballroom at The Woodlands Country Club in The Woodlands.
“Random acts of kindness can change lives,” said Logothetis. “Anything you dream is possible. Anything. And that the fuel for all this delicious potential is simple: Kindness and harnessing the power of human connection. And doing it all with a smile on your face and a spring in your step!”
A global adventurer, motivational speaker & philanthropist, he was a financial broker in London where he felt uninspired and chronically depressed. He gave it all up for a life on the road. This radical life change was inspired by the inspirational movie The Motorcycle Diaries. His new passion is finding ways for your inner rebel to come out and play. Traveling the globe via a vintage yellow motorbike, Kindness One, he shares life changing gifts to unsuspecting good Samaritans.
Leon recently returned from filming the second season of The Kindness Diaries traveling through 100 countries from Alaska to Argentina in his vintage yellow VW Beetle changing lives through kindness. His journeys through countries without any resources to show people are genuinely hopeful and kind. His motivational message will be deeply moving to attendees at the luncheon.

“We are very excited to honor Bill Dougherty, Praxair, Inc., First Baptist Conroe, and Cody McGullion at our 2019 Legacy Luncheon,” said Jennifer Landers, Executive Director of CAC. “Each of these champions for CAC make significant contributions to our Montgomery County neighbors in need, demonstrating compassion, kindness, and commitment to serving others.
Landers couldn’t say enough about her commitment and the staff commitment to serving the community through their mission driven work at CAC.
“I can enthusiastically speak for our staff and Board of Directors when I express how blessed we are to have the thoughtful and generous support of these outstanding members of our community. There are many people in all parts of our county who struggle through short term as well as long term financial difficulties and are in need of assistance, support and resources to make changes to improve their lives and become more self-sufficient. But we cannot do it alone and that is where our community partners shine. We rely on the support of individuals, businesses of all sizes, congregations, civic groups and anyone who has a heart for service. Every act of kindness and all levels of support can truly make a difference in the lives of those we serve.”
Scott Perry, Chairman of CAC sees kindness and compassion frequently in the community. “It is a blessing to know that our community takes care of each other, and CAC has been leading the charge for over 30 years. The Legacy Luncheon is not only an excellent way to acknowledge the rich history of the organization, but also those inspiring individuals who have the foresight and the passion to provide for others in their time of need.”
