Back during our first annual Redwood Rally, we were visited by and inspired by New Story Charity founder Bret Hagler. During that Rally, CFO and co-founder Nick Pasquini challenged the crowd comprised of all 10 of our offices to raise enough money to raise $30,000. In turn, that money would go to build 5 houses for families in need in Haiti.
Well, congratulations are in order, because in less than year…we’ve raised that $30,000!
5 homes will be built along “Redwood Road” – here’s Bret standing along the site of where those homes will be built:
The efforts of our Redwood Gives Back committees and their ambassadors, along with individual agents who contributed, will surely be appreciated by families who need homes the most. Special recognition should be given to C21 Redwood Realty Ashburn agent Rebecca Vittitow, who launched the very first Redwood Gives Back agent fundraiser. Between her clients, family, and friends, Rebecca raised $6,000 on her own! Rebecca will have a home in Haiti dedicated to her incredible achievement!!!!
Our efforts are never over, though. There’s always another goal to reach, and we continue to encourage agent and company contribution to local, national and international causes through our Redwood Gives Back program.
