In need of a smile?
December 14, 2011
If you haven’t met Kim Todd from our Seattle store, do yourself a favor and come in sometime and introduce yourself. Kim is one of the most incredible people I know. She is always up. I mean always. And it’s not an act. It is totally genuine. Kim lights up any room she’s in with her fun personality and her warm smile. You’d never know it, but Kim has been through some difficult times in her life. She has fought off cancer. Her Mom, who she is so very close to, is now in failing health. She has had more than her share of difficulties since I’ve known her, but I have never once heard her complain about her troubles. Instead, she comes to work every day with a smile on her face. Her fun, charismatic upbeat presence always lifts the mood of all those who come in contact with her. Her co-workers all love her and her clients are constantly raving about her. However, the most extraordinary thing about Kim is her big heart. For many years now, she has helped out a local homeless guy, helping find him a place to live, giving him food, supplies to wash cars, allocating his government welfare checks out to him over time so that he doesn’t blow the money all at once on drugs. She even brought him over to her Mom’s once for Thanksgiving dinner. (I’m not sure how her Mom felt about that one).
Kim’s current project is named “Drink Up Butter Cup”. It is a fund to raise money for a well for an African village. If she can raise $5,000, this village will for the first time have its own well for clean water. She has already raised almost $2,000. Here is the link below if you’d like to help contribute to this wonderful cause. mycharitywater.org/drinkupbuttercup
However, this article is not meant as a pitch to encourage people to donate (although it really is a great cause). It’s meant to tell you about what an amazing person Kim Todd is. She is one of the kindest and warmest people I’ve ever known. She is so much fun to be around. Everyone that meets her loves her. I’m thrilled that she chose to join EE Robbins when we first opened for business many years ago and I am extremely thankful that she is still with us today. She is truly one in a million.
If some day you find yourself in need of a smile, c’mon on into our Belltown store when Kim is there and say hi. If you spend any time at all with Kim, I guarantee when you leave the store, it will be with a smile on your face.
