Moms and Halloween!
It's creepy and it's kooky -- and it's Mom's favorite low-stress holiday! According to mom after mom, those infamous "big name" holidays—you know which ones we mean—are sometimes more headache than highlight. The pressure! The presents! The out-of-town guests or out-of-town travel, the cooking and cleaning, the expenses! But Halloween—that's a different story. More than two-thirds of Moms are involved in celebrating with their families.
What I love best about Halloween is all the little things that I see families doing every year, stuff that's unique to their family, not part of some big commercial idea about what the holiday should be like. Whether it’s just the basics—costume, trick-or-treating, candy eating— now we've got a whole series of activities and special events that many kids totally look forward to—from roasting pumpkin seeds to making a scary straw man for the front porch.
Things don’t have to be fancy, elaborate, or expensive, but it's all uniquely about family traditions and memories that kids will treasure their whole lives. Go on, string fake webs all over your porch, hang ghosts from the trees, cut out scary silhouettes and tape them in the windows, or create a cemetery in your front yard! Halloween's one time you can really go over the top with your kids. Halloween is one time even the most health-conscious moms can give in to their sweet fangs without any guilt at all..
This is where we need your help and how you can benefit at the same time…
Charitable contributions are tax deductible to a point. Rather than give your money to the government, you should consider making a donation to a charity. I believe it will somehow come back to you, well beyond a simple tax deduction. A core value at our company is “the size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through.”
Either way, your referrals are in good hands and help us contribute to a good cause.
Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Buying experience a smooth rewarding one. Over the last decade of helping almost a thousand families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you! So your referrals, those you know considering a move, that we help – you can rest assured that not only will they get the award winning service we are known for, but that a solid portion of the income we receive from the transaction will go toward a very worthy cause.
Each month I do my best to remind you that YOUR referrals help the Sick Kids...
Through our Giving Back program, we are on a mission to raise $50,000 for The Sick Kids Foundation by donating a portion of our income from home sales to them. As you know the Sick Kids Foundation does a tremendous job of helping kids fight through and survive nasty life-threatening diseases like Cancers, Leukemia and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma: stuff that many times rob the life right out of young people. They also lead the way in early diagnosis of autism and recovering from spinal cord injury.
As the area’s leading non-profit organization, they depend on sponsorships and donations to continue their leading-edge care and keep families' expenses to a minimum. So, YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP THE KIDS…
Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to my real estate sales team?
Not only will they benefit from our award-winning service, you can rest assured we are also donating to a very worthy cause.
I want to make it easy to refer your friends, neighbours, associates or family members considering making a move, so here are your options:

With all my appreciation,
Why I Support Sick Kids Hospital
I remember when I first heard about a young person close to our family suffering from a nasty disease and getting treated for that at Sick Kids Foundation. It was then that I began to pay closer attention to the work they do at that non-profit organization.
Since then, I have learned that it is a collection of hard working health care professionals, most making their home right here in the Greater Toronto area, all coming together for a common cause. That cause is to help young people overcome unfortunate health issues that life sometimes throws our way. Now, not only being a son but also a father, I take pride in supporting in a way that I can see the good work these people do for the children.
My team rallies around our annual goal of raising money and donating portions of our income to help the Sick Kids Foundation in their quest to heal young people when they need healing. My team and I are committed to providing outstanding results for buyers and sellers referred to us by our past clients. I have discovered that Sick Kids Foundation shares similar commitments to their patients and since their services survive on sponsorships and donations, we are happy to contribute and proud to support them.
