About Tom Gibson
Some recent health scares were enough to cause Gibson Company founder, Tom Gibson, to evaluate the purpose in his life. He took a step back to reflect on what mattered to him most. He quickly realized that to him leaving a legacy amounted to giving back to the community in which he lives and to those who are in need. This ultimately led to the conception of Pocket Share.
The name Pocket Share is inspired by Tom’s lifelong friend, a German exchange student he met in high school. As an adult, his friend faced a life-threatening illness. When Tom called to console his friend, he shared a famous German saying, which when translated means, “the last shirt has no pockets.” Tom became determined to live the spirit of those words after hearing of his friend’s illness and living through his own.
That phrase helps remind Tom of the importance of living for today because you never know when your time will come. As far as money, “you can’t take it with you.”
