June 19, 2013- Alpharetta, GA- The goal, $10,000 is set. The good news is we have raised almost $3,000. When we announced this fundraiser for the REALTORS of Moore, Oklahoma, we moved many people that have been affected by natural disasters. Especially Sally Moore an Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate Associates in Benton, Kentucky. Moore and her family lived in Miami for over 40 years and lost everything in hurricane Andrew in 1992. She knows firsthand the feeling of loss, destruction, but also the uplifting feeling of support from complete strangers and has been paying it forward ever since.
Almost every geographic area suffers from a force of nature that could destroy everything in its path. Moore says “I lived in Miami for 40+ years with hurricanes but that was home. I moved to Kentucky 13 years ago with tornados, ice storms, flooding, and earth quakes but this is home now.”
Home is Moore, Oklahoma to everyone that lives there. What if this was your home?
John Crimmins, RE/MAX Regional Director of Georgia also has been onsite rescuing people covered in rubble and debris from multiple natural disasters. “It is a life changing experience and I regularly donate money to recognized charities working in the disaster zone.” RE/MAX, LLC recently released an infographic on “Preparing your Home for Inclement Weather.” Regardless of whether you own or rent you should have a plan in place.
