KRISTIE GIVES SO MUCH TO THE ROSWELL COMMUNITY BY VOLUNTEERING IN COUNTLESS WAYS, SUPPORTING STUDENTS AND FAMILIES THAT ARE LESS FORTUNATE BY PROVIDING SHELTER, FOOD, CLOTHING, ETC., AND MOST OF ALL, ALWAYS SHOWING THAT IT TAKES A VILLAGE.
Kristie, a Realtor in Roswell, Georgia, “gives so much to the Roswell community by volunteering in countless ways, supporting students and families that are less fortunate by providing shelter, food, clothing, etc., and most of all, always showing that it takes a village," shares nominator Carrie.
Carrie nominated Kristie after an extraordinary act of kindness that tugged at her heartstrings. The week before Thanksgiving, Carrie’s house caught fire and her family was staying in a hotel. Plus, to add to the craziness, Carrie tore her rotator cuff and required surgery. With a sense of humor and looking at life with a glass-half-full, Carrie posted a photo of her tiny Christmas tree in the hotel. Literally moments later, Kristie responded with this incredible message:
"Hi Carrie! I’m so sorry you have had a fire and are in a hotel!!! I can’t imagine you guys having to spend Christmas in a hotel!! We are out of town for Christmas... I would love to offer you guys our home, decorated and ready to go on Dec 21st! Please come make our home yours for the holiday. Kristie.”
This remarkable gesture meant so much to Carrie that she was motivated to recognize her “for all the kindness she has for humanity,” so Carrie scoured the internet for a company that rewarded women for their kind deeds and VOILA…she nominated Kristie for our ‘It’s Not About the Bag Program’.
Kristie, you emanate LOVE and KINDNESS! You inspire us with your unwavering goodwill and generosity!
