Giving Back to our Communities
Real Estate Webmasters is dedicated to our community because we love where we live. We also know that coming together to achieve a common goal is a powerful thing, and we're proud of the work we do to unify our cities.
REW and our staff support a number of causes and charities on an ongoing basis. This act of giving back is our small way of saying "thank you" to the communities and people that continue to support our growth.
Here are some of the previous opportunities we've had to give back to our community:
Easter Seals Canada
Real Estate Webmasters has donated $21,000 to Easter Seals Canada, an organization which offers free summer camps to children with disabilities.
Easter Seals Canada is the partner charity for Century 21 Canada, a major REW client. To show our appreciation and give back to the community, REW donated 100% of the first $21,000 in proceeds received from new Century 21 websites.
Real Estate Webmasters participated in a month-long series of charity events, kicking off with a Halloween costume contest (by donation) and ending with a silent auction. Additional fundraisers included popcorn sales, pizza parties, an inter-office ping pong tournament, and a highly successful bake sale.
BC Children's Hospital
Real Estate Webmasters continues to support the BC Children's Hospital through a variety of fundraising events in our Vancouver location. As a family-oriented company, children's charities continue to be of utmost importance to our team.
During the 2017 Giving November campaign, REW staff fundraised $1,090 for the BC Children's Hospital through a costume contest, bake sale, ping pong tournament, and silent auction.
Real Estate Webmasters gave Christmas gifts to 100 people who otherwise wouldn't have presents to open Christmas Day. Staff were invited to participate in a shopping day, where gifts were lovingly picked out for every person on REW's Christmas Angels list. The team then wrapped the presents and sent them off to dozens of families in the Nanaimo area.
In December 2017, REW purchased over $7,500 in gifts, with additional presents donated by staff.
Child Development Centre
REW is an annual platinum sponsor and team participant in the Child Development Centre's Silly Boat Regatta. This regatta challenges corporate and family teams from the Nanaimo area to build the silliest boats possible, then race them in the ocean waters of the Swy-A-Lana Lagoon.
The annual charity even is the primary fundraiser for the Child Development Centre, whose mandate is "to provide individualized services for children with developmental needs, from birth to age 19, and their families that promote optimum child development".
In addition, REW held several additional fundraisers for the Child Development Center during Giving November.
Some of our sponsorships are small, and others are done in secret to respect the privacy of families and participants involved. You won't see them here, but we are just as proud of these contributions!
