Click to preview Project KengiKat & Do Something Saturday photo book

For over 6 years Project KengiKat and Do Something Saturday backed by my close circle of friends and a loyal team of volunteers and supporters have worked very hard to restore dignity and respect to homeless individuals, seniors, children and people living with HIV.

This book is a celebration of the work I created over 6 years ago and a tribute to all the wonderful people who have supported my work since the beginning and the people we've tried very hard to serve with love and respect.

From the very first Santa Monica Beach outreach and our HIV outreach in Long Beach to the Baskets of Love and Operation Give Hope outreaches, Project KengiKat and Do Something Saturday represent grassroots outreach at its best. They represent what is possible when humanity comes before community creating connection without bureaucracy.

Kengi is what some have called an "old school" photographer because he ONLY believes in basic post production of his work. "I simply want to take great pictures with my camera, not create them in photoshop. What you see is what I snapped. If that means I'm outdated or considered less of a photographer, then so be it " Often called a "photojournalist" or "social justice" style photographer, Kengi uses his photography to bring new awareness and understanding for social issues gripping Los Angeles as well as the nation.

This book is amazing! I picked it up and didn't put it down except for when I was finished reading it. Kengi tells an amazing story - his story - and the story of the amazing people he has met along the way, without any pretense or apologies. It's a book that you read and think: Wow! He really cares about people! Wow, other people care, too. And, I can do something.
This book can only reach you in the best way and inspire you.
Thank you, Kengi!

I'm in love with this book! Kengi's work is amazing! Not only his published works but his life works. I promise if you buy this book the pictures and words will forever be with you. As I turned the pages I smiled, I laughed, and I cried.

I feel privileged holding his book in my purchasing my book I not only helped out Kengi's many projects but I added a book to my collection that I will always pull out and show to others.

Prepare to be inspired!

Much Love,
Kimberly Acuff-Coghill
