Love Life by giving...  

 

Santa Cruz SPCA When we purchased our building we had an epic garage sale where all the proceeds were donated to the Santa Cruz SPCA. We love what the SPCA is doing and I am happy to say we were able to write a nice check to this great group.

Renaissance High School Wood Shop Program

A great guy took over teaching Renaissance High School's woodshop program and needed some assistance with upgrading the shop. I still remember my shop teacher, Mr. Bigelow, and was more than happy to donate some new tools and materials so a new generation of kids could have a great shop experience.

A Taste of Santa Cruz

Every year we team with Derek and the East Side Eatery for the Santa Cruz Association of Realtors' Taste of Santa Cruz event at the Boardwalk’s Cocoanut Grove. Our booth is classic and Derek’s food is Awesome.  We have a great time and the event's proceeds go to assisting low income home buyers with closing cost assistance as we bridge the gap to home ownership.

Whole Planet Foundation

We found out about this program through a great gal over at Whole Foods Market. As entrepreneurs we are very excited to be involved with the Whole Planet Foundation's program to invest in a future without poverty by offering microcredit loans to empower aspiring female entrepreneurs in the developing world, where a small loan can help an entrepreneur build a home-based business that creates an opportunity for stability and prosperity for her family.

One Hundred Hats for Ramey

I still remember the first time I met Ramey. It was at our first office across from the Verve. He came in to see if Friday Realty would like to be one of the sponsors of the Schralpfest, a local surf contest for the kids. Ramey, has a ton of spark and we said sure! When we heard what had happened we could think of no better person to support with our fundraiser at the 3rd Annual Pleasure Point Street Fair. Thank you to everyone who purchased a Friday Realty "Love Life" baseball cap. 100% of the proceeds went to Ramey and we were thrilled to provide him with such a nice check!

Young Heroes Foundation

We heard about the Young Heroes Foundation through two local friends who do bike rides through Africa to raise funds for the Young Heroes Foundation.  Unfortunately the devastation of AIDS is creating a generation of orphans in Swaziland.  Though it's one of the smallest of all countries, Swaziland has the world's highest rate of HIV/AIDS infection.  Started in 2006, with the help of the U.S. Peace Corps., The Young Heroes Foundation now supports over 1,000 orphans in more than 600 families with monthly stipends, comprehensive healthcare, vocational and business training.  We are happy to provide a donation to The Young Heroes Foundation.  Please click on the link to learn more about how the program works - and how easy it is for you to offer your help.
