To the Supporters of America's Disaster Relief,
We want to help America’s Disaster Relief – ADR, raise more money to accomplish its mission. We believe that it is the 'grass roots', the very Heart and Soul of America, that best knows the real needs in our communities. This is even more true in times of disaster. Our organization is similar in spirit to ADR. We focus on helping nonprofit organizations who are without the huge grants and government assistance given to the large national Non Profit Organizations - NPOS. ADR is greatly in need of donations from the 'grass roots' in order to accomplish their missions and we would like to help. We are the 'grass roots'.
We are REBSEA, the Real Estate and Business Social Enterprises Association, a 501 (c)6 nonprofit trade association. REBSEA was founded by 135 Realtors, lenders, and insurance agents in 46 states and across Canada who have been donating to and/or actively work with nonprofits as part of the way they conduct their business. Our members have donated millions of dollars earned from their business to nonprofits in their communities. Many of our members have founded nonprofits of their own as well.
We are asking for your help so that we can help ADR. There are several ways that we can raise money for ADR and we are asking you to read the following and consider being part of the process of making this happen in a meaningful way:
1).Whenever you, or anybody that you know, is going to buy or sell a home or property please consider searching the REBSEA Member Directory for a REBSEA member in your location. www.rebsea.org If there is not yet a member in your location please contact us and we will find one for you that you will be pleased to work with.. When you work with a REBSEA member you know that after closing a donation will be made to a nonprofit
2) ) REBSEA members donate a part of their commissions to nonprofits of their choice. Those of you who are real estate agents, lenders, or insurance agents, please consider joining REBSEA and donating part of your commission from business that comes to you from the REBSEA network. Please visit www.rebsea.org to learn more about the REBSEA program
3) REBSEA members have donated millions of dollars to nonprofits. We will inform our membership, our database, and our extensive social media network about the great work done by ADR and encourage them to support ADR with their donations.
4) When major disaster strikes we will ask our members, our database, and our extensive social media network to donate directly to ADR. We will explain the dire need for second responder aid "once the shock has worn off and reality has set in". We understand !
