What better gift for “Christmas in July” than to plan to give back in the fourth quarter? If your company typically holds a fourth quarter promotion to give to a non-profit, it’s time to start finalizing the details. As a partner of HOPE International and Homes for Hope, mRELEVANCE encourages you to learn more about these organizations.
Founded by Jeff Rutt, president of Keystone Custom Homes, a mRELEVANCE client, HOPE International promotes microenterprise development to aid families who suffer from unemployment and poverty around the globe. Through business training, savings services and small loans, struggling entrepreneurs get a hand up instead of a hand out. HOPE International works in 17 countries across four continents including the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Peru, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Moldova, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, China, India and the Philippines.
Last year mRELEVANCE worked with Keystone Custom Homes on the “People of Hope” campaign to raise awareness and donations for HOPE International during the fourth quarter. During the campaign, the builder donated $5 to the organization for each selfie taken at model homes and quick move-in showcase homes.
The mission of Homes for Hope is “to work within the building industry forming partnerships with builders and their trade partners to create Homes for Hope income generating projects to provide financial resources to help support HOPE International and like-minded organizations which work to alleviate physical and spiritual poverty in the lives of families and individuals in developing countries throughout the world.” A “Home for Hope” is built on a pro bono basis and helps generate revenue for HOPE International. Builders can donate all or some of the costs and work with subcontractors, suppliers and consultants to donate materials, consulting services and costs of labor.
mRELEVANCE enjoys giving back to organizations such as HOPE International and Homes for Hope to help create better lives for people across the world.
