As brokers, we spend so much of our time either maintaining our existing clients or acquiring new clients that it can be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture and the humanitarian aspects of life.
We are in a fortunate position in that we can help those in need whilst creating a positive impression for our brokerages and brands at the same time.
1st Street is dedicated to contributing 10 per cent of our office income to charities and other worthwhile causes. During the month of May, we are taking part in the Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign in support of Multiple Sclerosis Research Australia. Their mission is to accelerate research on prevention, treatment and a cure for multiple sclerosis.
To raise public awareness, the campaign calls on supporters to wear, dare or share to fundraise in May each year. That could involve getting sponsored to wear red lipstick (or anything red), getting sponsored to do a dare, or by sharing with a Kiss Goodbye to MS fundraising event or sharing a post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #kissgoodbyetoms. To find out more, visit www.kissgoodbyetoms.org.
By contributing a portion of your income to those in need you will have a direct impact on improving peoples’ lives. It can also improve your brokerage in terms of boosting employee morale, improving clients’ engagement with your brand, there may be tax advantages and you can feel good about yourself knowing that you’re not only helping clients but you’re also helping the wider community.
