How can one RED Day change lives?
RED Day 2011 is May 12, 2011
RED Day (Renew, Energize and Donate) is an initiative dedicated to celebrating Keller Williams Realty’s year-round commitment to improving our local communities. Each year, on the second Thursday in May, tens of thousands of associates from across the United States and Canada participate in a wide range of projects, devoting our time to renewing and energizing aspects of the neighborhoods in which we serve.
RED Day is Keller Williams Realty’s culture at work. And it’s the glue that binds our company together as we express our commitment and our solid values to make our communities better places in which to live.
Last year’s impressive success story included 150,000 hours of community service by 35,000 agents.
We’re only a few days away from this year’s RED Day on May 12th and our hope is that we will double our efforts! At least 250,000 hours spent working in our communities and 45,000 associates. Together we will go out together and make this wonderful, wonderful thing happen.
On Thursday May 12, 2011, associates with Keller Williams Referred Realty, including me, will celebrate RED Day by helping two charitable organizations: Wychwood Open Door and Humewood House.
Wychwood Open Door has been providing homeless and socially isolated people with guidance, food, friendship and support since 1986. Keller Williams Referred Realty associates and friends will be painting St.Matthews kitchen and dining hall to provide a clean and welcoming environment for those who frequent the space.
Humewood House is a Young Parenting Resource Centre, which offers young moms and soon to be moms residential services, life skills training, childcare, education and counselling. We will be painting, cleaning and gardening at Humewood House to make the gardens and building beautiful for the young moms and babies that come to the Parenting Resource Centre for help.
When we participate in RED Day, our life will be changed to a greater extent than those we have helped. This is going to be a glorious day. We’re making a difference not only in the life of our community, but in our own personal life.
I’ll report back on the benefits of our efforts on RED Day!
To the good we can do!
