Todd Kassal, one of the most successful brokers in Miami, helped Hurricane Irma victims with bottles of fresh water and cans of food.
We all have seen what Hurricane Irma has done since hitting the state of Florida, and the damage that it caused. But how many of you realized what a strong nation we are when we stand together? One man that should be thanked for his good deeds is Todd Kassal, a stockbroker from Miami, who organized a real philanthropy, distributing fresh water bottles and food cans on the streets of his city. "People were so scared, and they had every reason to be like that, but someone had to do something. I knew that authorities couldn't deal with all the victims, so this was the least I could do to help," told us, Mr. Kassal.
Todd Kassal has the privilege to live a good life granted by his experience on the market. "I always tried to give something back for all that I have. I strongly believe in Karma. Everything that we do has a strong influence on the things that will happen to us in the future. I am also extremely emphatic about my fellow Miami residents. I couldn't leave them like that. There was this woman with his five-year-old child that lost most of her goods because of the hurricane. It was such a depressing image to watch." Mr. Todd Kassal donated one thousand dollars to the woman's family.
The good-hearted man has a swamp buggy truck, perfect for these type of emergencies. "I had it since Katrina hit. I knew that something like this would come again. When it comes to natural catastrophes, we live in a very dangerous area. When I first heard about Irma, I tried not to panic and remember what I promised to myself." - Mr. Kassal partially lost his achievements in the flood that was caused by Katrina. He had to face the harsh reality of hurricane damages. He promised himself that he will not allow this to happen to someone else and that he will do everything he can in order to help someone that was affected by a natural disaster.
Of course, sometimes even the good deeds are not welcomed by everyone. "There were cops around Washington Avenue that did not like what I was doing, telling me to go and find shelter. But how could I do that when so many people were struggling? When I first heard about that Mariott boat, I was asking myself, 'how could someone do something so despicable?"
Mr. Kassal used his wealth in a good way when he asked a car engineer to build him a truck that can drive through the flooded streets. "I know that the rigs may not be legal on our roads, but I didn't care at all. We were not under normal circumstances."
Some people were acting like he was using the hurricane as an excuse to drive his monster truck. "People can be harsh at times. I know that they are already stressed, so am I. I care about my city and I will not let it fall down." It is estimated that Todd Kassal aided around 200 people with a bottle of water and a meal.
