Amy Harris Real Estate will help build homes for families in need by becoming a member of “Give Back Homes.” I am so excited to finally marry my business goals with my personal goals.
Similar to the program at Tom’s Shoes, every time I sell a home, I have committed to donate money towards the cost of building a new home for a family in need in either in the United States or Central America. The network is tied directly to Habitat for Humanity which has successfully built thousands of homes for people in need all over the world.
The way it works is that in order to donate, I pay a monthly fee to become a member of the network. These monthly fees are used to defray the cost of running the network so that all donations go directly to the cost of building homes. Hopefully, home buyers and home sellers who are in the market to purchase or market their homes will consider using a member of the Give Back Homes network to generate more donations to build more homes. Currently, they have projects going up in Houston, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Nicaragua, Denver, New York City and Las Vegas.
A cool element of the network it that it allows the real estate professional to donate directly to the project in the city of their choice and shows how much has been donated and how much more is needed to begin the project. See example below.
Once there are enough funds, I will actually have the opportunity to help build the home itself. I love the combination of both the monetary as well as the physical contribution to making these new homes a reality. I look forward to making the program an integral part of my business.
