I recently read where we were working Jan. 1 through June 30th of each year, just to pay all of our taxes. After that, you keep all you make. Prior to that, 100% goes to the government in some form or fashion to pay for some kind of government worker, work program, social program, defense, project, health care, common good, common projects, etc. Whatever you want to call it, April 17th is TAX day; the deadline for filing your federal income taxes in the U.S.A.? Did you know that April 16th is “Emancipation Day “a legal holiday in the District of Columbia? So we all get an extra day!!!
So, in celebration of this special time of year, let’s talk TAX relief. If you received last month’s letter from me, you will recall our goal of trying to raise $5,000.00 for Every Kid Outreach (EKO). But – we need your help and I believe you can benefit from the TAX relief as well.
Every Kid Outreach (EKO) just came back from one of their many college trips, which gives kids a massive step to achievement. Unfortunately, they were caught in a blizzard while in D.C. As a result, their flights were cancelled and they had to rent vans to get back; very expensive vans. Not to be deterred, they have already started planning their next college trip!
Located in the historic town of Eatonville, EKO serves students throughout central Florida. As they strive to prosper in life and pay their fair share to society. The future is being mentored and successful generations are being created.
For every house we sell by this referral year, we are donating a portion of our income to EKO, Every Kid Outreach. Our goal, again, is to raise $5,000 to help them in their quest to mentor, educate and enlighten the youth in Central Florida.
This is where we need your help and how you can benefit at the same time…
Charitable contributions are tax deductible to a point. Rather than give your money to the government, you should consider making a donation to a charity. I believe it will somehow come back to you, well beyond a simple tax deduction. A core value at our company is “the size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through.”
Either way, your referrals are in good hands and help us contribute to a good cause.
Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Buying experience a smooth rewarding one. Over the last two decades of helping thousands of families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you! So, your referrals, those you know considering a move, that we help – you can rest assured that not only will they get the award-winning service we are known for, but that a solid portion of the income we receive from the transaction will go toward a very worthy cause.
Your Referrals Really Do Help the Kids…
I want to make it easy to refer your friends, neighbors, associates or family members considering making a move, so here are your options:
1. You can go to www.HelpKidsWish.com and enter their contact info on line or forward the link to who you know considering a move.
2. You can pass along our business card to them; I have enclosed a couple here for that purpose.
3. Of course you can always call me direct as well at 321-436-5463.
You and your referrals mean more than ever to my team and I. As we move forward in this new season, please know we are extremely thankful for you and your being a special part of our business.
With all my appreciation,
Bing Realty Advisors
P.S. I have copied and pasted an awesome story about EKO that will inspire you!
We were supposed to fly home on Wednesday evening, but unfortunately our flight was cancelled due to the weather. They wouldn't have been able to get us on a flight home until Saturday, so what do we do? That's right - Road trip! It added an additional day and lots of driving, but we made the trip from Washington, D.C. to Eatonville, FL in about 13 hours! Your support ensured that we were able to make this adjustment. From transportation to food, you ensured that we were able to make it back safely and timely! Our students (& their families!), staff and volunteers are truly grateful for your support!
