I know there are some vocal members of the business2.com.au community who seldom miss a chance to bash realestate.com.au. Most of you know I work at the company that runs that website. So you might be surprised that today I’m going to give you a free opportunity to take money out of our pocket. What could be better, right?
So, here it is: just visit this website (NOW CLOSED for donations), and click in the appropriate spot and we’ll donate $1 to Mission Australia to help provide Houses for the Homeless (up to a total of $100,000).
I know, I know. If you’re trying to soak us, $1 isn’t that much. But, if you pass the URL around to all your friends, then you can up the cost to us substantially.
At the same time, you’ll be helping people who really need help. You’d be surprised by the people who have been homeless at one time or another. In a country as wealthy as this, certainly no one needs to be in this situation.
The World Wide Web tells me that these folks are among those who have been homeless: Jim Carrey, Halle Berry, Kelly Clarkson, Daniel Craig, Kelsey Grammer, Jewel, David Letterman, Martin Sheen and Hillary Swank. Two formerly homeless individuals have gone on to be nominated for Nobel prizes, and one has won a Nobel.
So, do your part. Bash realestate.com.au AND help put shelter over the heads of those who need it.
