Seasons Givings

I’ve read a lot of articles this week about people giving back: from funding technology to find a cure for ALS, educating people about AIDS/HIV with today’s World AIDS Day , how to join the ranks of WarrBill (my “clever” Brangelina mash-up for Buffett and Gates).

There even was a story in The Wall Street Journal today about hitting up party guests for donations to your favorite charity. People say they are “fed up with the excesses of the season and would rather wind up with money for a good cause than 20 bottles of wine at the end of the night.”

Since about 80 percent of charity donations come during the end-of-year holiday season, I wanted to point out a new option for Redfin homebuyers. Now you can have as little or as much of your refund sent to the charity of your choice. We’ll even drop the check in the mail for you.

It’s easy to do, just make sure you select “Apply all or part of the refund to the charity of my choice” when making an offer and a Redfin agent will help you with the rest.

Instead of using the old adage, “I gave at the office,” just tell ‘em you gave part of your home.

Happy Holidays!
