You know how everybody has that one cause that hits really close to home for them? This is it for me. I lost my cousin Kim in the Spring of 2008, when she was just 30 years old. The culprit?

When it comes to Red Robin, it's usually the catchy, "Red Robin, yummmmm," commercial jingle that first pops in one's mind.
Now the famous burger chain might have reason to change their slogan to, "Red Robin, awwwww."
The Colorado-based chain of more than 400 restaurants is in the headlines for a good Samaritan act by one of its managers that, it turns out, is not all that unusual.
A manager at the Red Robin in Apex, N.C., paid it forward by comping the dinner of one very pregnant woman dining with her family.
As first reported by Consumerist, the manager joked with the woman, Amie Sivon, a local attorney, about her Red Robin dinner possibly being her last meal before giving birth. When Sivon and her husband, Jason, dining with their 2-year-old son, got the bill, Sivon's $11.50 meal had been deducted from their total, with nothing more said than a "MOM 2 BEE GOOD LUC" note.
"The manager said nothing to us about it," Jason Sivon told ABCNews.com. "We were already happy with the service so that action really blew us away. I looked at my wife and told her that I guessed we would be coming here more often."
The now-viral story - told by Sivon to Consumerist only in hopes it would "make businesses see the value of being more personable," he told ABCNews.com - is nothing out of the ordinary for Red Robin team members.
"These kinds of random acts of kindness in our restaurants are part of our culture," said Kevin Caulfield, a Red Robin spokesperson.
"Our team members, day in and day out, will bestow these random acts," he said. "They're empowered to do special things for our guests to make the experience a great one for our guests."
