Redfin Holiday Giving Project (It’s Better than Fruitcake!)

We cancelled our gazillion metric ton order of holiday fruitcakes this year because we thought Redfin clients would prefer something less…sticky and brick-like. Instead, we decided that our clients and friends would find it much more meaningful to give back to the community this holiday season. Redfin is donating a total of $10,000 to three inspiring nonprofit organizations, and we need your help!

We have selected three nonprofits that are engaged in important work: American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA®), Rebuilding Together, and Vittana. We’ll award donations to each organization, but how much we give is up to you.

    minus 10. There are no veterans or wounded hero charities in your list. We should always seek to include those who have sacrified for the lifestyle we enjoy.
