Long time realtor and entrepreneur, Andrew Gavin, reminded me how fortunate we are to work in the real estate industry and all the incredible opportunities we are given that can make a difference in other people’s lives. Founder of the “Bikes 4 Kids Charity,” Andrew shared with me all the amazing work he is doing to make sure children get to experience the privilege of owning a bike. As someone that received a bike from a charitable program at a young age, I was truly touched by his story and his generous work.
We work in an industry where we have the opportunity to make a great deal of money. What we do with that opportunity is what really matters. There are SO many people in need in this world and it is our obligation within the real estate community to give back and impact someone’s life for the better. There is no greater joy than helping someone else. We do it every day, but why stop at selling homes when the chance to make a difference is right in front of us?
What can you do to give back? As Andrew said in our podcast, “sometimes it’s a simple as buying a pencil.”
If you are interested in starting your own charity but don’t know where to start, Andrew has supplied us with a “How To” file to help you or someone you know get started in pursing your passion and helping a community in need.
