When you buy or sell a home through me, I like to give you the opportunity to make a choice to help someone else. I donate one percent of my income from your purchase or sale to the charity of your choice, from the list below.

I view social responsibility as my opportunity to infuse support in the world as my part of living here.  I’m very excited that together we have the power to make a little difference.

 

 

Earth

We only get this one beautiful planet!  Conservation International works to
"protect the natural balance of the life on land and in the seas".

"I'm not an enviormentalist. I'm an Earth warrior." Darryl Cherney, quoted in Smithsonian 1990

"A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself.  Forest are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people."
Franklin D. Roosevelt
 

Physical and Mental Challenges

Vision/FoundtionVision/Foundation for Blind Children/Local for Blind Children/Local

Provides services to children & adults whom are blind or visually impaired. My granddaughter Evie has Accomodative Estropia.  She has been wearing glasses since before she was one. We are constantly worried about her possible loss of vision. Days of wearing eye patches and an inability to see without glasses is a very hard thing for a little kid.

This charity is also near and dear to my heart. My niece Arden has Apraxia. She is a very bright, intelligent young lady yet, she must work very hard to be understood. Apraxia is a speech disorder.  Every person deserves a voice.
