Florida Realtor Initiates a Literacy Program with K is For Kids Foundation

Navy Veteran Discovers Passion During Middle East Deployment, Uses New Career in Real Estate to Turn Passion Into Action

Naples, Florida 34102

NAPLES, FLORIDA—August 31, 2015—Inspired by a passion ignited during his deployment to the Middle East, Navy veteran, Florida realtor and children’s book author, Sabin W. Johnson, has partnered with K is for Kids Foundation to launch “More Books for More Kids,” a new literacy initiative in which Johnson will donate five signed copies of his book, “The Jolly Shop,” to K is for Kids every time he completes a fully executed real estate transaction. 

During his ten years in the Navy, Johnson fell in love with serving his country and developed a passion for helping others, especially kids.  But as a first-hand witness to global strife, he became increasingly concerned with our nation’s future.  He realized that the best way to protect our national security was to provide for and invest in America’s most valuable asset—children.  Upon his military retirement, Johnson vowed to use his passion for helping kids, serving others and protecting our country, in order to find a new career that helped children grow into positive, contributing patriots.  Within 18 months of retirement, Johnson proved his commitment to this mission by embarking on a new career in real estate, and publishing his first book, a children’s Christmas adventure called, “The Jolly Shop.”

 Johnson said, “Being in real estate is a blessing because I love helping families find the right home for their needs.  But I want to do more than help today’s clients buy a home; I want to make sure their children can also own homes one day.  With so much economic uncertainty and a troubled educational system, it will only become more difficult for our youth to achieve the all-American dream of home ownership, enabling them to raise a family in a stable, secure environment.  I hope this new initiative helps more children develop a love of learning and reading, and inspire them to continue their education and imagine all that is possible for their futures.”

K is for Kids Foundation, a non-profit organization in Naples, Florida, promotes literacy through a unique student-driven volunteer-based program.  The foundation utilizes a mentorship program to promote youth leadership and develop students' skills through literacy initiatives. High school student interns create and manage programs to place new books into the hands of children who need them most and serve as valuable role models of success and reading advocates.  Like Johnson, the foundation aims to build toward a better, brighter future by developing kids into creative leaders and problem solvers.

Karen D. Clawson, founder and executive director of K is for Kids said, “We are thrilled about this new initiative and look forward to lots of books coming our way.  We will use our network of contacts and interns to distribute the books, read to children, and inspire imagination and motivation to keep learning.  Plus, the message in “The Jolly Shop,” is great because it is all about the value of giving and good triumphing over evil.  Kids love it!”  For more information about K is for Kids, visit http://www.kisforkids.org or call 239-596-KIDS-5437.

Johnson engages in real estate transactions throughout Florida and specializes in residential properties at Port Royal in Naples, Florida. He is also currently developing a screenplay for “The Jolly Shop.”  For real estate inquires, direct your browser to http://www.portroyalnaplesfloridahomes.com.

Florida Realtor

"My conscious got the best of me I guess," Florida realtor Sabin Johnson said.

A Florida realtor and military veteran was in a hurry to get to an appointment, but something on the side of the road made him forget about his rush.

"This is Officer Marker in Fort Myers, Florida, assisting an elderly gal with her car. That's a good cop right there," Sabin Johnson can be heard saying in the video

At first, the site of an officer changing a tire in the Florida heat wasn't enough to make realtor Sabin Johnson stop, but he told Newsy about a half mile later, it "got the best" of him, and he made a U-turn and offered Deputy First Class Eric Marker his help.

"As I kept goin' by, I was just thinking abut how he was back there cranking on that thing all by himself and you know if he had a hand with it, he'd probably, you know, get it done a lot quicker, get him out of harm's way and get these ladies back on the road," Johnson told Newsy on Skype.

Johnson was able to give the officer a break and take his turn helping change out the tire. 

Both men sweat it out helping the two elderly women change the tire after a car crash. It was 85 degrees that day in Fort Myers. 

"I told him when I saw him, I was like, 'You know, you're doing a good thing. You don't have to be doing this. You could be in your patrol car, sitting in the AC unit waiting for a tow truck, completely out of harm's way.' ... He went out of his way to go above and beyond his duty," Johnson said.

And thankfully, Johnson's potential clients weren't upset he was late.

"When I got there, they were like, 'You know, that's really cool that you did that,'" Johnson said.

And Johnson is no stranger to helping people in need. In 2012, he was awarded by the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office for pulling an unconscious man out of his car that was on fire.

But despite being called a hero, Johnson remains humble.

"I didn't really have any choice. I just figured I had to get him out of there before the car blew up, and in fact, it did. ... I think we all have a duty to do that," Johnson said.

Sabin is also a children's author and for every real estate transaction he donates 5 signed copies of his children's Christmas book 'The Jolly Shop' to the K is for Kids Foundation. For more information you are welcome to visit www.JollyShop.org.
