When I worked at Eddie Bauer, there was a period of time when we would ask people if they’d like to add a dollar to plant a tree. Here in eastern Washington, we had a lot of people decline when they discovered the tree would be planted in one of a few designated areas in western Washington.
Today in TJ Maxx, I was asked if I wanted to add a dollar to my purchase to ‘Save the Children”. How does someone say ‘no’ to that? I didn’t. I also didn’t ask for clarification, figuring I’d find out more when I got home and looked it up online. And I did, here. As you can see, obviously the money goes to Save the Children, literally and figuratively, and also helps out with diabetes and autism. Cool.
Did you know that when you use me, or any Windermere agent, to buy or sell your home, part of the money I am paid in commission get directly funneled to the Windermere Foundation, which in turn channels money to help low income and homeless families? Very cool.
