" From Harm to HOME"

From our peaceful cabins. homes and land on the snowy hills and dales around Asheville, REALTORS® who, in a special way,  understand what HOME can mean, are touching lives across the globe.

This holiday season a number of real estate brokers and our clients in Asheville have chosen to send a life-affirming and a life-saving gift-  basic tools and simple comforts- that  can make a critical difference in the lives of people who are experiencing terrible suffering.

By December 15th, in honor of clients, friends, and loved ones, along with a  small donation made before or after closing, we are sending a personalized holiday card in their name.

As a former teacher, I am especially attracted to the idea of providing mosquito nets to save children from malaria. Mosquito nets only  cost $18!

ABOUT IRC

Formed at the request of Albert Einstein, since 1933, the International Rescue Committee has gone to crisis zones to rescue and rebuild with a banner that reads,

 "We lead refugees from harm to HOME."   

And, for almost two (2) decades, Gerry Martone  has worked for the IRC, http://www.theirc.org/ spending much of that time leading emergency response efforts in crisis situations around the world.  Here's the percentages showing how our donation will be used (see graphic.)

 

From our snowy slopes in Asheville, we wish wellness and happy homes for all...

Hi Janeanne,

This is wonderful of you.  I support Breast Cancer as my charity year round, but I do end up giving to many other charities through this wonderful season.

Andrew~

It is so gratifying to know that, as real estate professionals and as individuals, we ride the waves of compassion.

janeAnne,

1) I'm jealous you've had snow already. I haven't had any snow in Southern Colorado yet!

2) What a generous, kind heart you have.

Malaria is one of those disease we don't often think of much in this country.  In fact, I have only know one person that actually had it.  However, watching what he experienced with the disease was a real eye opener.  I agree with you that real estate professionals are a very giving group of people.  Thank you for posting this information.

janeAnne.....I was not familiar with IRC.   You are truly a giving and compasionate person.  All the best to you.

janeAnne, This is wonderful of you all. I'm on our charity committee here in our office. We just learned of a young soldier coming home that needs to modify his home to make it handicap accessible since he lost his legs in the war.

janeAnne, what a wonderful way to support a good cause during the holidays.  I hadn't heard of IRC, so thank you for sharing the information.  All the best!

Dena~Big snow and FRIGID 10 degrees this morning. Still blue skies are peeking through today...

 

Myrl~ Malaria does seem like something "far off the scope" ...but I, too have seen the effects...and wish for all the children of the world...wellness and mosquito nets if that will help.

Carra~Let's hope this touches a few real estate professionals like you...THX!!!

 

Connie~ As I read your comment, I smiled. I was thinking that when we reach out to our neighbors, the world seems warmer.
