Give Me 30 Seconds and We’ll Save a Kids Life Together…

Welcome to the month of April.  By the time you are reading this, you will be deep into it.  That means I can’t play any April Fool jokes on you.  Never been a fan of those anyway.   When I was a kid, my favorite radio station 96 Rock in Atlanta announced they were going to be changing formats and playing elevator music and for half the day they did that, only to announce it was a big April Fool’s Joke.  

Another BIG deal in April is TAX day! Yep! Deadlines for filing those personal income tax returns.  I don’t think most people mind paying taxes as long as they are being put to good use.  I think it’s the waste that bothers most us citizens.

Both days I mention above are for sure conversation starters, one full of funny stories, the other maybe not so much, but there are few days more memorable than the day you buy your dream home.  That day is supposed to be fun, exciting and a great feeling of accomplishment.  

Therefore, we offer guarantees and assurances to our clients.  We call this Our Risk Removal System.  Like our Guaranteed Sale Program: Your Home Sold at a Price Agreeable to You or We’ll Buy It*. And our VIP Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee:  If You Are Not Happy With Your Home, We Will Buy It Back!*  In fact, our Exclusive Seller Agreements Offer 10 Unprecedented Guarantees.  In my experience, these guarantees elevate our service and our clients experience.  

And by now, four paragraphs into this month’s Homeward Bound, you are wondering how the headline ties into any of this.  If you are receiving Homeward Bound for the first time, you will notice we give back to those in our community who need help the most.  Like the Kids at Children’s Health Care of Atlanta (CHOA)! 

Just down the street from where I’m typing, Children’s Health Care of Atlanta has a full house of kids with many fighting for their lives.  And that is no April Fools joking matter.  It’s also likely taxes are the furthest thing from the minds of the parents with kids at CHOA. 

As you know Children’s Health Care of Atlanta does awesome work in helping kids fight through and survive nasty life-threatening diseases like cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia and others. They also lead the way in early diagnosis of Autism and recovery from spinal cord injuries. 

Most don’t know though that Children’s is a non-profit.  They depend on sponsorships and donations to provide their world class care and keep costs for the families of these beautiful kids to a minimum.  

This year, we are on a mission to raise $10,000 for Children’s Health Care of Atlanta. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell.  

So, when you or anyone you know buys or sells the place they call home with us, we deliver on our exclusive guarantees and award-winning service AND a very worthy cause benefits as well.   

The reason for the headline is because 30 seconds is about all it takes to think about who you know that may be considering buying or selling the place they call home and to give us a call.  If it is you, then awesome! If it’s a friend or family member, that’s great too! 

Thank you in advance for your referrals! My number is 770-898-1088.

It is an honor to give back to the community that I grew up in and that I love and there are so many kids that really need our help.  With the help of our clients, I'm confident we'll make our big goal of $10,000 this year. 

Over the decades of helping hundreds and hundreds of families sell or buy the place they call home, we have met so many wonderful, loving, caring people. We are so grateful. Thank you for reading over this month’s Homeward Bound and thank you for referring anyone you know considering buying or selling to my team. They will be in good hands and a very worthy cause will benefit as well.

Go Serve Big!!!

P.S. I copied and pasted the story enclosed from CHOA’s website. It tells the story of the great work CHOA is doing better than me.


Hampton Cooper (Age 5), Congenital Heart Defect 

From bumps and bruises to respiratory issues, Hampton Cooper’s parents Melissa and Chris became quite familiar with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta when he was between the ages of 5 months and 3 years old. 

But it wasn’t until he was almost 3 that a closer look into Hampton’s hospital visits helped doctors            determine he was struggling with a very rare heart defect. 

“He had a complex vascular ring, was also missing his left pulmonary artery and had a bicuspid aortic valve,” Melissa said. “We were looking at three significant heart defects.” Hampton was struggling to breathe, and his health was declining quickly. 

The Children’s care team created a plan that included two complex heart surgeries. “I was super anxious about Hampton feeling traumatized by the first surgery, but leading into the second surgery, he asked when he would get to go ‘back to his hospital,’” Melissa said. “It’s amazing what Children’s is able to do, giving kids a positive experience, even when they are going through adversity.” 

Melissa and Chris are very thankful for how well Hampton has done post-surgery. He is running and keeping up with his siblings, and he’s one of Hope and Will’s–the Children’s mascots–biggest fans. “Our outlook and perspective on life is a lot different now,” Melissa explained. “There are so many blessings and so much to be grateful for.”
