WKYC TV Names Kent State Student “Biggest Winner”

Katie Kimble has a heart of gold and WKYC TV took notice. Kimble’s random acts of kindness helped her earn the title of “Biggest Winner” on the Channel 3 Morning Show.

Kimble is a strategic shopper who saves her money throughout the year to buy gifts for children who are in need around the Kent State area.  She fills out rebate forms and sells some of her gently worn clothing to buy toys, books and games. 

Kimble donates new undergarments and clothing to MetroHealth Medical Center for victims of sexual assault. She also donates food, treats, leashes and supplies to SecondHand Mutts in Tremont, Ohio. 

“I like to spread cheer on any old day too,” Kimble said. “I like to buy coffee or lunch for someone behind me in line whenever I can.  I never look back, but sometimes I’ve been chased by someone who wanted to say thanks.  Oftentimes they will ask why, and I usually tell them that I don’t know. I guess I want to live in a world where people enjoy risky behaviors like smiling a lot and doing nice things, even for perfect strangers,” Kimble said.
