Though they got off to a slow start, Kim and Marlene find a way to give big to Karl. After their first meeting, Kim immediately starts making calls, using her personal contacts to secure a check for the family from Bridgestone/Firestone. Though Marlene doesn't make a single call, she maintains her positive attitude and is thrilled with the team's success.
Kim also found a beach house for Karl and his family, with the first month's rent and utilities already paid off.
"My entire life has been about what's best for me, taking care of me," Kim says. "To know that instead of getting, I'm giving and making somebody else's life better, it makes me not want to take my own life for granted. There are people out there that are struggling, and it just takes one person to make a difference in their lives."
