CIR Realty recently announced a partnership with two great organizations in Calgary. As a mom to great kids and a couple of nutty canines I am very happy to make a contribution to the program at the closing of every transaction going forward.

A contribution from every sale I makes goes towards the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and I am proud to be on the top 10% donor list for 2011.  It is amazing to see that so many names comprise the donors list showing how many people contributed to set the new record.
 
April 5, 2012 – The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is thrilled to announce its fundraising results for 2011: a record-setting $2 million was raised to support women’s shelters and to help stop family violence in Canada. Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charity, empowering sales representatives to make a tangible difference in their local community and across the country. Now in its 14th year, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation supports 200 shelters across Canada, helping more than 30,000 women and children every year. It's also committed to funding violence prevention and education programs for youth.

Since its inception, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $14 million with the support of generous Royal LePage agents, brokers, managers and staff, along with members of the communities in which they live and work and local and national sponsors. Since Royal LePage covers the administrative costs of the Shelter Foundation, 100% of the funds raised goes toward the cause.

Thank you to everyone that stopped by and bit by bit raised some money for the Royal LePage Foothills Shelter Foundation this weekend at my little garage sale. A couple folks added some extra coins here and I just wanted to say thank you.  It would have been a bit more, but a very nice family struggling to get settled needed some furniture so away it went.
 
Even though Calgary is very prosperous, there are folks out there that find themselves in circumstances. The foundation has one goal - to raise money for the development and protection of women and children living under abusive and stressful conditions.
  
Every time I help someone buy or sell a home, I make a donation to the foundation. Hopefully the number at the end of the year is a good one and I hope to increase it with every year.
 
If you'd like to donate visit the Royal LePage Foothills Shelter Foundation website or visit the Royal LePage Foothills website for more information about the Foundation.
