5% To Charity - Food Lifeline

I care about what you care about, and I'm putting my money where your heart is! I'm donating 5% of every commission to each client's favorite charity.

Showcasing Lindsay and Anna's Choice - Food Lifeline

I helped Lindsay and Anna buy their first property in the US. They are from New Zealand, and real estate is done quite a bit differently there. They needed guidance and education to understand how properties are bought and sold here. I helped them find a place in the area they wanted within their budget. It was a rollercoaster ride to the finish, with a few bumps along the way there and after, but I helped them through it all.

When I asked them which charity they would like me supp0rt, they chose Food Lifeline because it benefits the essential needs of the community they live in. Anna and Lindsay said, "The main charity we support is Food Lifeline. I think it was back in the early days of Covid we were looking at what we could do, and someone told us that they did good work. It's a direct way of helping people, especially when sometimes people just need help to get through a short term crunch. That means they can keep homes, cars and jobs, and they've got a good chance of getting past the rough patch. We've remained monthly contributors since."

Food Lifeline believes that food is an integral part of life. No one deserves to be hungry. By partnering with food industry sources, they are able to distribute fresh food to a network of 350 food banks, shelters and meal programs locally here in Washington. At the same time they are working to end hunger by addressing its root causes including poverty, racial inequity and social justice by supporting advocacy at the government level. They actively support policies and investments to help reduce food waste in Washington by 50% by 2030. In addition, thousands of v0lunteers help to ensure food gets to the people in need in various forms, whether it be a food bundle or a cooked meal. If you would like to volunteer, be a part of this year's Food Frenzy or learn more about Food Lifeline, go to:

When you buy or sell with me, you can support your favorite school, social justice organization, food bank, un-housed neighbor program, veteran group, or anything else you care about. How great is that? What will you choose?
