But before you hop onboard for that ride, I want to ask you a question. When do you really feel fulfilled? What is it that you do that helps give you joy? Most say it’s the act of giving.
I’m a Just Big Kid at Heart!
If you know me you know I’m just a big kid in a 60 year old body. I still get excited about the holidays. Plus, the holidays stir strong, positive memories in me. I suspect they do the same for you.
Some of my most memorable holidays are the ones I actively took part in giving. Sure, it’s easy give a present or toss money in the red kettle. But I’m talking roll up your sleeves and being part of something really grand!
A local grass roots organization called the Triangle Spokes Group has been my “vehicle” (bad pun!) to give back in a small way to my community in recent years. Organized and run by two local dynamo Triangle REALTORS, Ashley Wilson and Jenn Nowalk, Triangle Spokes helps raise 100% of its proceeds toward buying, and assembling bikes (with a helmet) to distribute to need-worthy children in the Triangle every year during the holidays. I’ve been a part of the distribution of these bikes at the local Salvation Army distribution center and it’s a special treat. To see the look in the eyes of moms and dads as they claim a bike and helmet for their kids is incredible. Talk about feeling alive!
Here at Dakno Marketing, we are a partner with Triangle Spokes Group. One of the ways we participate each year is to give a bike for each site we sell during the month of November. So for every Dakno real estate SwiftSite, SwiftBlog or Hybrid website purchased, Dakno Marketing will donate a new bike and helmet to be given to a need-worthy child this Christmas. We are already experiencing a tremendous month of sales and we believe the best is yet to come!
If you have been thinking about investing in your real estate marketing, November would be a great time to create your marketing hub and be part of something really grand. Something significant!
Thank you everyone for partnering with us as we help bring awareness to this awesome organization. Let’s make this holiday extra special for local Triangle area need-worthy kids and donate a bike and helmet today!
