Mr. Dawson has achieved an upwardly mobile career in sales and marketing. Mr. Dawson established LID Foundation in 2020, but the inspiration for LID began five years earlier when Ken lost three of the most important women in his life; his mother, his wife, and older sister, all in a short time. Following this difficult period, Ken reflected on the lessons from his childhood. Among these were to treat others the way you want to be treated, to make a difference if you can, and to be kind to others. With the memory of these influential women in mind, he began contemplating how he could make a difference in his own right. When he came across the statics regarding foster care children and the challenges they faced in achieving long-term stability and success, he knew that making a positive impact in this area was his calling. To Mr. Dawson LID is personal. The three aforementioned women and what they meant to his life story inspire his drive to create something special and meaningful.
