As a child, many of us dream about our ideal career when we become adults.
Although most of us manage to achieve this particular goal, there are those whose careers don’t turn out exactly as planned when younger.
A lot of us end up getting stuck in a crappy career that offers one purpose, yes that’s right, to pay the bills.
It’s rare to find a job that you truly love, however, Kimber Bermudez is one of the few who has achieved this.
Kimber had other things on her mind when she began speaking with the passenger sitting beside her on board a flight from Chicago to Florida.
Her friendly neighbor asked Kimber to tell more about her profession, so she began speaking about the job she adores.
Kimber is a teacher and very passionate about her job.
Of course, as she engaged in conversation with the man sitting beside her she mentioned this to him on the plane.
The stranger asking Kimber what the biggest challenge for modern teachers as the conversation moved on to the teaching community at large, Kimber didn’t hold back as she was always very direct.
She expressed that her low-income work at school was heartbreaking at times, she spoke about how tough it was for the children considering the amount of the difficult conditions they had to endure at home.
However, this has never prevented her from giving everything for those kids.
She hoped that 2018 would be the year when none of her pupils came to school hungry.
The man beside her asked if he could take her contact details and explained that his company often makes donations.
NOt expecting anything Kimber proceeded to give the man an email address for the school’s administration.
Something amazing happened shortly after.
Kimber posted the following on Facebook:
“The man behind me tapped my shoulder. I turned around and he apologized for listening in to my conversation, and he handed me a wad of cash. He told me to “do something amazing” and sat back down. I was in complete awe that I had touched a stranger. I realized that there was $100 on top, and started to cry. I thanked him and told him how I would buy my students books and give back to the community. I didn’t count the money from that man, but I would later find out that he gave me $500.”
Things didn’t end with this heartwarming gesture once the plane landed, something else transpired that moved Kimber beyond expectation.
“The plane landed and the man on the aisle across from me told me that he listened as well. He said that he didn’t have much, but he gave me $20. As if my heart couldn’t be any happier the man in front turns around as well. He also handed me money and said that he only had $10. I started crying on the plane. I told all four men that I would do something amazing for the kids.
“I was not telling my story to solicit money, and never intended to walk out of that flight with anything other than my carry on. I do however hope that posting this continues the chain reaction of people helping those in need, and especially the children in need. It doesn’t have to be a school in Chicago, and any bit helps!
“My heart is in complete shock and awe right now. When the world seems crazy there are always good people. I would do anything for my students and want to thank these strangers. I don’t know the name of the man who gave me the $500 or the other generous strangers, but they deserve to be recognized. I am thankful for the good people in this world. No child should ever go without anything. This experience made me want to do more for the kids, and use my gift of speaking to help others in need. I want to pass this story around, and thank those strangers and their amazing hearts!”
