I recently sent out a letter to my mailing list offering to donate 10% of my commission to the charity of their choice (minimum $1,000) either for their home purchase or sale, or as a result of their referral.
My former clients Dinesh and Kavitha were the first to respond to this offer. Despite a busy family and work life, Dinesh is an ER doctor at St. Paul's Hospital, they will spend September and October volunteering at Handicare International.
Here is how Dinesh describes Handicare:
"Thank you very much for your offer to support a charity. We are involved with a registered charity called Handicare Intl. Handicare supports an organization in India that runs a school, rehabilitation centre, special needs school, vocational training centre and much more for disabled people who are very poor. Both Kavitha and I have volunteered there and helped raise money to start the Special Needs School."
Thank-you to Dinesh and Kavitha for allowing me the opportunity to serve you, this charity and your friends.
