Our community continues to amaze me. You can read the details in the press release below but it seems something comes across my email on a weekly basis that restores my faith in humanity. With recent events in Brussels and all the other horrible stuff the media tends to focus on you’d think this world was mostly bad. I’m here to say that I know it’s not mostly bad.
My community is much like others around the world. You have your 5% to 15% of bad people doing bad things but by and large…there is good. And that good comes from people that are inherently good. They have time they are willing to give. They have money they are willing to give. They have skill sets they are willing to use for the greater good.
I like hearing these good stories and thanks again to must! charities and the people working to make our community better.
Must! Charities Receives over $23,000 from Heart to Heart Real Estate
Gift marks the largest gift given by Heart to Heart Real Estate who donates 50% of their commissions to non-profit organizations selected by their clients.
Templeton, Calif. (March 22) – Mark McConnell and Liz Lee, owners of Heart to Heart Real Estate, presented a check for $23,515 to must! charities on March 15, 2016. Scott and Viquel Hawley of Paso Robles designated must! charities as the beneficiary through their association with Heart to Heart Real Estate. Must! Charities will use these funds to contribute to its recent collaboration, a four-year, $260k partnership with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to address needs in Northern San Luis Obispo County. By pursuing the four-year plan, CASA will not only be able to serve more children find safe, nurturing and permanent homes, but will also be able to sustain this program after support from must! charities is completed.
Heart to Heart Real Estate uses funds generated by real estate transactions to effect massive change through community partnerships. At the close of escrow for a transaction, Heart to Heart will disburse 50% of the commission to fund the nonprofit organizations designated by their clients, making it possible for any individual who otherwise would not have the means, to contribute to a nonprofit.
“Heart to Heart’s business model is the perfect example of how to give sustainably,” said Becky Gray, Executive Director of must! charities. “In a region where there is only so much to go around it’s wonderful to see a business implementing the model we used when founding must. Make giving a part of the way you do business, make it easy and painless, and generate new money for our community. It’s simple and it works. We are so grateful for Heart to Heart and the Hawley Family.”
