CANADA – Each week, Sutton Spirit promotes the volunteer work and charitable efforts of Sutton Brokers, REALTORS® and staff across Canada. This free service is designed to raise community profiles in a meaningful way. Studies show that not only does it feel great to give back, there are also marketing and networking benefits. You can make connections with people who share similar interests and build a positive reputation.
We want to celebrate your latest projects—large and small—and help to promote your upcoming events. Contact us to write your story for you free of charge. Our writer will follow up to gather a few details, comments and a photograph or two.
Some of the offices and individuals featured on Sutton Spirit have told us that clients and REALTORS® have contacted them specifically because of our stories highlighting their efforts and contributions. Others have reported that the coverage helped to increase event participation/boost donations.
All Sutton Spirit stories are distributed to media and Sutton members in the region. Our site www.suttonspirit.com is an online archive, making it easy to share social media links. We also produce an annual magazine, which is delivered to all Sutton offices.
Autumn’s crisp days and numerous holidays offer many opportunities to get involved. Consider these ideas:
• Host a Halloween party with a raffle or 50/50 draw to benefit charity.
• Attend the SPCA’s chic and glamorous Unleashed Gala.
• Cook a meal at a homeless shelter.
• Start an office collection to supply a festive dinner and gifts to a family in need.
• Follow your passion by volunteering at sporting events, art programs, etc.
• Check your local listings for unique charitable projects.
• Explore “voluntourism”; many tour companies combine international travel with opportunities to build homes, teach English, protect endangered animals, and more.
What are you waiting for? Giving back can be enjoyable and rewarding!
