In a brief and important departure from regular old real estate stuff, I wanted to share with you what might be most special and unique about the Brokerage I work with - Keller Williams Realty International.

It's called "Red Day" and will be taking place in every single city in the United States and Canada where there is a Keller Williams Realty Office.

What is Keller Williams RED Day? 

(Renew, Energize and Donate) Day is a Keller Williams Realty service initiative dedicated to improving our local communities. Keller Williams Realty asks all of their associates in the US and Canada to donate their time on May 13, 2010 to renewing and energizing aspects of their local communities.

On May 14, 2009 we logged over 100,000 community services hours on Red Day!!!

Our vision for this day is that all Keller Williams associates will actively engage in a coordinated effort to improve their local community. Activities may include rehabbing a house, cleaning up a local trail, providing food for the homeless, or any other service related activity needed in your community. This will be one of the single biggest events ever undertaken in the real estate industry.

Keller Williams Realty St. George Project

Our St. George Keller Williams Realty office will literally be CLOSING ITS' DOORS on Thursday May 13th to complete our project - The planting of a full garden at Porter's Nursing home, located at 126 W. 200 N. in St. George.

The people at Porter's have told us that a garden is exactly their their residents need to keep themselves busy and feel like their time and existence has "value." We are SO PLEASED to be doing this! I dont' know much about planting a garden, but I can use a shovel, rake and hoe!

We are inviting ANYONE from the community to is interested in participating to join us! Just shoot me an email: larkin@gostgeorge.com, and we can discuss the opportunity.

Watch out this Thursday cause we're painting the town RED!! If you'd like to see a REALLY neat video about this special event, here it is, just don't forget to grab a tissue.
