Sunshine Kids

The Sunshine Kids is an international, nonprofit foundation completely funded by contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations. Unlike many other groups, The Sunshine Kids isn't an organization that raises money for medical research.

Instead, it provides a service to these kids that's truly unique. Through its efforts and those of its supporters, The Sunshine Kids allows these kids to forget about hospitals and just have fun!

It allows these brave kids, who face the pain, depression and isolation of treatment everyday of their lives, to get out of their homes and hospital rooms and into the real world, The Sunshine Kids sponsors events every year, free of charge, for kids from hospitals across North America, plus many regional events that allow these kids to participate in wholesome, healthy, outdoor activities with other kids just like them.

All of these kids are selected by the medical staff at each participating hospital. In addition to paying for each child's expenses, the Foundation also provides a staff of doctors and nurses who monitor the medical condition of each child during every event.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Affiliates believe in the work of this remarkable foundation. That's why we chose to adopt it as our charity. Throughout the year our local offices participate in a myriad of fund-raising activities. And there is one very special activity that you can participate in whether you're selling or buying a home.

Help Support The Sunshine Kids
As a seller, you can participate simply by designating your house as a "Sunshine Kids" listing. You'll get a special sign on your property letting people know you care, and when your house sells, your sales associate or broker will donate a minimum of $10 to The Sunshine Kids. As a buyer, you simply ask your sales associate to donate a minimum of $10 to The Sunshine Kids when you purchase your home.

It's that simple. It's that important! For further details, please discuss this worthwhile program with our sales associate.
