GIVING BACK: My 2016 Pledge to Support Two Local Omaha Charities

With the New Year, it gives me the opportunity to extend my thanks to those who helped make this past year wonderful.  To continue the tradition of helping others, I am declaring 2016 as the year of GIVING BACK as I celebrate my 15-year anniversary as a REALTOR®. 

For each closed transaction in 2016, I will be donating $50 to one of two local charities:  Hands, Hearts, and Paws or Goodfellows.

HANDS, HEARTS AND PAWS

Hands, Hearts and Paws is a local non-profit animal rescue organization, whose mission is to rescue, fully vet and re-home dogs in need.  HHP operates strictly on donations, and is full of hard-working, animal-loving volunteers who rescue pets from high kill shelters, puppy mills, and homes that can no longer keep them. 

100% of donations made to Hands, Hearts, and Paws go towards vetting and the animals, and making sure they are healthy.

This means none of the donation go to administrative costs as they rely on “foster parents” in the community to help house and care for the dogs until a permanent owner is found. Click here to search for dogs currently up for adoption.

GOODFELLOWS, AN OMAHA WORLD-HERALD CHARITY

Goodfellows is an organization that has been helping those in the Omaha community for over a century with a history dating back to the 1890’s.  Its origins come from helping farmers with bad crops during a time of widespread unemployment.  In 1910, their efforts matched 750 needy children with families who promised to provide them with a decent Christmas.  

The Omaha World-Herald pays for all the administrative costs, so every dollar donated goes directly to those in need.  Today, Goodfellows assistance is diverse helping families who are in need of one-time urgent funds, providing holiday meals, and also providing clothes, shoes, and coats to thousands of underprivileged children.  This charity has made a profound impact in Omaha by raising and distributing nearly $10 million dollars since 1945.
