Fall has arrived and we are nearing the Holidays quickly. You’ve undoubtedly noticed that everything is now flavored with “Pumpkin Spice” and the tastes, smells and sights are getting everyone into the Holiday spirit.
Inside my real estate business, I’m involved with a Mastermind Group of agents all over the country that try to give back to our individual communities as much as possible. Especially around Thanksgiving time, we’ve always looked at this as a time to reflect on how fortunate we are, what great families we all have and the love we should embrace for our fellow neighbors.
Unfortunately, we still have poverty in America. As a matter of fact, we have it right here in our area. This Thanksgiving, there will be families as well as single Mom’s and single Dad’s that can’t provide a bountiful feast for their loved ones. As you can imagine, nothing could be more disheartening or humiliating for the provider of a family, so we try to help out wherever possible.
Happiness, love and gratitude are things that are extremely important to me here in our community. I would encourage anyone that wants to create good will, good feelings and good examples for your children to just find a family or two that could use a little bit of cheer and help them out with a big family dinner or anything else that may be of assistance.
We’ve found these families by checking with local churches & charities, food banks and even running a few ads online to ensure we find good families that are simply down on their luck.
If you’d like to talk about this a little more, simply give me a call. Otherwise, help out anywhere you can!
