Todd Kassal Recognized for Helping Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

The people of Texas experienced complete devastation earlier this year as Hurricane Harvey reared its ugly head on the state.

But in times of tribulation, the strength and kindness of people come out in full force. Todd Kassal proved that to be true as he was able to bring light to a dark and scary situation.

The stockbroker from Miami, Florida used his financial resources and time to help those who needed it most following Harvey’s impact.

After seeing what was transpiring around Texas, Todd Kassal loaded multiple trucks with supplies, water, and cans of food. With the help of drivers, he coordinated the route and destinations for the relief aid.

The drive from Miami to Texas was a long one, taking over 16 hours as Kassal and drivers only stopped for gas along the way.

“We wanted to get to Texas as fast as we could,” Kassal said. “The supplies and food we had were vital to the survivors of this disaster.”

By the time Kassal and his crew arrived in Texas, they were able to reach different destinations with the supplies.

“Every piece of food and every bottle of water was essential to the victims. And to be able to assist government official and the authorities in the relief effort,” Kassal adds.

The state of Texas and many of its communities have taken notice of certain individuals who went the extra mile when assisting in the relief efforts.

Todd Kassal is no stranger to the effects of hurricanes, having gone through the devastating storm of Hurricane Katrina.

That storm took everything Kassal owned. He remembers people from all over the country coming to aid him and the people of his community.

“I’ll never forget the feeling of despair and loss of hope when you learn that everything you own is gone,” Kassal states. “But the people who came to help were instrumental in my recovery.”

The experience during Hurricane Katrina was always on his mind during his drive to Texas. But when arriving at the state, his help was not entirely welcomed by law enforcement officials. But he ignored the advice and pushed on, helping those in need by passing out supplies and food.

“What could I do? Turn my backs on those in need? No way. I came a long way to make a difference, no matter how severe the conditions were.”

Kassal and his crew were able to help over 200 people. While that is only a fraction of the thousands who suffered losses during the horrific storm, it’s his help that will have a long-lasting effect on those he reached.

Todd Kassal receives calls from key members of the communities he helped, he is learning more ways to help people during future storms.

No matter where a storm hits, Kassal is going to keep a watchful eye and plan assistance again. His crew has always said they would drive for Kassal if he needs supplies and food transported across the country.

“This experience brought so many people together,” Kassal says with a smile. “We are now a tight-knit group and will help people in need in the future.”

PRESS RELEASE  UPDATED: OCT 23, 2017

Todd Kassal, Changing Lives a Class at a Time

While technology has sure made human life easier and has even replaced a lot of human jobs, it still cannot compete in tasks that require skill as well as intelligence. The skills are passed from generation to generation, which makes sure that the art of excellent craftsmanship is not lost with a single individual. From such a skilled family belongs Todd Kassal, who is a master in the art of welding, with his name known by almost everyone in the city of Scottsdale, Arizona in lieu of his legendary welding.

Many people have the misconception that welding is an easy task. And while it is not rocket science, it is not as simple as it looks like. A lot of factors need to be kept in mind to ensure a weld that will withstand heavy duty use over the years while maintaining its structural integrity. From the correct choice of metals to be welded to ensuring the amount of welding done is just right for the joints to be connected together, welding requires a lot of split-second calculations which can be only done by those skilled in the art of welding.

On top of that, welding is an extremely dangerous occupation, with chances of hot of heavy metals falling over the welder as well as the smoke generated causing health problems if inhaled. Therefore, welding is nothing short of challenging and not everyone has the capability to do it. But with the right amount of perseverance and hard work, one can learn and even be a master in welding like Todd Kassal, who, even in the face of adversity, mastered the art of welding.

Born to a poor family of welders in rural Arizona, Todd Kassal was always fascinated by the way how two discrete pieces of metal were connected together as one with the help of welding. Every other day, he used to visit his dad in his workshop and gaze enthusiastically at the way his dad used to weld pieces of metals large or small with such precision and accuracy. Todd’s dad, even in their financial hardship, enrolled Todd to a school, where Todd was one of the star students.

Even though he could not afford those expensive school books, he passed his school and high school with flying colors, scoring a distinction in all his subjects. Subsequently, he joined college and pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture. He also pursued a technical degree in Welding. His skills and talent ensured that he got a job almost instantaneously after completing his education, and he was involved in several large infrastructure projects all around America as well as in other major countries of the world.

Although Todd was far away from the hardships and the monetary struggles he faced during his childhood, he always thought that something was missing from his life. He still had the passion of welding after all these years, and he wanted to spread this skill to people far and wide. So, last year, he settled in his hometown in Arizona and decided to impart his welding skills to learners. He opened a technical school called the Kassal technical school, which has an aim of training people the best of any technical skill they desire. The specialty of the school, as you must have guessed, is welding, with a wide variety of courses teaching the different techniques of welding.

Todd Kassal himself heads the welding classes himself and one can really feel his enthusiasm while attending any of his classes. Todd Kassal is one among several others who are doing their bit to ensure that humanity’s great skills and craftsmanship are passed on from generation to generation instead of being lost in the endless void of history and time. In a way, he is also giving an opportunity to the future generation to see how things used to work before the rise of the machines, who are slowly but surely, taking the workload off humans.

PRESS RELEASE  UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017

Todd Kassal Helps the Victims of Hurricane Irma With Fresh Water and Cans of Food.

During the time Hurricane Irma hit Miami, a successful broker named Todd Kassal helped the victims with fresh water and cans of food.

Hurricane Irma led to the destruction of many homes in Florida. But in times like this, there is more need than ever to be compassionate to each other.

The man who took his time and used his financial resources to help the victims of Hurricane Irma in Miami is Todd Kassal.

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.

 TODD KASSAL

The stockbroker was driving a monster truck all over town defying the dangers he was exposing himself to in order to help others who were in need.

“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,” said Mr. Kassal.

The successful Miami stockbroker recognizes that it wasn’t just his hard work that helped him climb in his career but also the fact he had more opportunities than many others.

“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.”

After helping the woman by providing a meal and some bottles of water, Mr. Kassal donated one thousand dollars to her family.

The man who decided to help the people of Miami used a swamp buggy truck, which works well on flooded roads.

“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 lost everything due to Katrina in the past, and he knows the damage that a hurricane can cause. This is why he tried to help everyone he could with water and food. He promised to himself that next time a tragedy like Katrina hits he would help others avoid the suffering he went through.

Not everyone was happy with the good deeds the stockbroker made, however.

“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?’

But in the end, Mr. Kassal risked a lot when he drove all over the city in flooded areas with a means of transportation that wasn’t legal, just to help people.

“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,” added Mr. Kassal.

There were others who were saying that the stockbroker was just looking for an excuse to drive his monster truck, but the critics didn’t stop him from helping others.

“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.”

Todd Kassal has no regrets and is happy he did the best he could to help those in need. It’s estimated that around 200 people were helped with water and food by the kind-hearted man.

The damage and suffering caused by Hurricane Harvey have made the American people feel more lost than ever. But in times like these, the strength and the loyalty of many are being put to the test.

Todd Kassal proved that under the harshest situations, people are getting closer to each other.

The stockbroker from Miami used his time and financial resources to help those who need it the most by distributing water bottles and cans of food in the affected areas of Miami.

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.

“People were so scared, and they had every reason to be like that, but someone had to do something,” added Mr. Kassal. “I knew that authorities couldn’t deal with all the victims, so this was the least I could do to help.”

Not many had the same courage or recognized the gravity of the situation. The city of Miami was hit hard by the Hurricane Harvey, and there were many times when authorities were overwhelmed. It was impossible for them to help everyone.

But Todd Kassal recognized that there is a need for civilians to contribute too. The stockbroker lived a good life thanks to the hard work in his field, but he always recognizes that they are others who never had the same opportunities as he did.

“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.”

Todd Kassal helped the mother and her five-year-old child by donating one thousand dollars.

The man with a big heart was driving his truck around the city looking for people who might need his help.

“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 Harvey, I tried not to panic and remember what I promised to myself.”

Todd Kassal is no stranger to the damage that hurricanes can cause. Hurricane Katrina took everything he had. Ever since then, he promised to himself that he will do his best to save others from the same experience he endured.

Unfortunately, not everyone could see the good in his actions. Some authorities were not pleased with what he was doing and recommended him to find shelter instead.

“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 Marriott boat, I was asking myself, ‘how could someone do something so despicable?'”

There are some critics who were saying that 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.”

Despite the critics and the challenges he had to face, it is estimated that Todd Kassal helped over 200 people with bottled water and canned food.

Todd Kassal Brings Water and Food to Hurricane Irma Victims

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.
