We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.

– Sir Winston Churchill

 

We tell our kids we are a blessed people; we live in such an amazing city, we have food on our plates, clothes on our backs, and a home to live in with a family that loves us. As we enjoy and are thankful for these things, we want to be mindful of those for whom food, clothing, and a loving home are constant struggles.

There are so many amazing agencies whose sole purpose is to care for those with less, both here in Kelowna and overseas. With the whole world being our village, giving back locally and globally is easy!

A significant event for our family was a trip we took two years ago to South East Asia, to expose our kids to a third world environment and give them the opportunity to respond to the needs of Children at Risk. We visited 9 different cities in the Philippines and Thailand, where different friends and missions groups have feeding programs, work in poor areas with business development and self sustainability projects, and with single moms giving them the skills to support themselves. We also had the privilege of meeting Abi and her family, the little Filipino girl we had been sponsoring.

This exposure to another culture and the challenges of extreme poverty had a profound effect on all of us. The experience also gave us practical and creative options of how to effectively care and respond.

There are many ways and means by which we can can give back and numerous worthy non profit organizations that aim to make the world a better place. We have chosen to raise support and awareness for four non-profit organizations that we are familiar with and trust.

If you’re interested in giving back, we will match any donation you make to one of the following charities. We pledge to match dollar for dollar, up to $500 per real estate transaction completed through SW Properties’ services. Income tax receipts are available for all donations over $25.00.
