#GivewithRobertsHomes

Roberts Homes Opt To Give 2017
Tis’ the season where client and referral gifts of appreciation are in exchange. The most common end of year gesture for most realtors is the cliche branded calendar. Here at Roberts Homes, I believe that there is no better gift than giving to those that are truly in need. As Pablo Picasso famously said, “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”.

Rather than sending a branded gift (such as a calendar), I encourage my supporters to donate the $10 cost of each calendar to a good cause. This years recipients are either:

Listen and Talk School: Listen and Talk is a nonprofit educational program
that has been delivering life-changing results for children who are deaf or hard of hearing, and their families for 20 years.

OR

Jubilee Women’s Center:  Jubilee Women’s Center supports women experiencing poverty to build stable and fulfilling futures, one extraordinary woman at a time. Led by the guiding principle that women of all races and cultures are to be treated with respect and dignity, Jubilee provides programs and services that empower women to make positive life changes.

The responses have been rolling in and I feel so grateful to pass the donations along to two wonderful local causes here in Seattle. If you have your response card, please don’t forget to drop it in the mail.

Happiest holidays to you and yours!
