Alongside Tim, Kim runs The Hudson Family Foundation, which “is committed to making a positive and long lasting impact in the lives of children who have a genuine need for assistance with regard to a specific physical, emotional or financial circumstance.”
According to its website, the foundation “is based on our Christian values and our strong belief that we should be thankful for our many blessings and give back to those in need. We will raise funds through an initial personal investment, personal donors, grants, corporate sponsorships, and fundraising events.”
She has also previously been involved with various charities including The Rally Foundation, Team Ministries and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

She is also a practicing lawyer at Davis, Bingham and Hudson in Auburn, Alabama, where the family resides during the offseason.
According to its website, the firm “is licensed to handle real estate matters in both Alabama and Georgia and our attorneys provide full service representation in the closing of home purchases and refinances.

5.She Tweeted at Eric Young Jr. after the Mets Outfielder Fractured Tim’s Ankle
Eric Young Jr., a New York Mets outfielder, fractured Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson’s ankle during a game last season. But the next day, Kim kindly replied to an apologetic tweet from Young, even thanking him for the way he played the game.
Hudson was injured when Young stomped on his ankle during a bang-broke play at first. With Hudson clearly injured on the play, Young became visibly emotional as EMS workers removed the pitcher from the field.
“I’m hustling down the line like I always do, going for the base,” Young told reporters after the game. “I saw his foot, as I’m going for the base, right there in the middle, as I came down, I knew I didn’t get any of the base. I know I got all of his foot. I pretty much knew it was probably broke right as I did it, and that’s why I sprinted right back to him and tried to console him as much as I could and apologize.”
