“what if you could really help – really make a life or death difference to a fellow REALTOR who seriously needs a hand up, not a hand out?”

For Pat's Sake

I just received the following email from my good friend, Dr. Fred Grosse:

Dear Friends

Greetings to you all from springtime in New Zealand. We are writing to you with a different kind of message today, one that we very much hope you will support and which we also hope you will never need to use.

We would like to invite you to visit the following site:

The site asks the question: “what if you could really help – really make a life or death difference to a fellow REALTOR who seriously needs a hand up, not a hand out?”

We encourage you to sign the “Bridge of Hope” petition and send it to NAR. The purpose of the Petition is to show the leaders of NAR that members of NAR want NAR to establish a benevolent fund to help its REALTOR family. To show NAR decision makers that this is something that needs to be done and that it is hugely supported by REALTORS around the country. Please take the time to read the information and to sign.

Once you’ve signed the petition and sent it to NAR, please would you email your friends and networks and ask them to do the same thing.

We feel this is an action whose time has come and we thank the Tuesday sisters and their male counterpart, Nick French, from the bottom of our hearts, for what you are doing. And we thank you, in advance, for your support.

Dr Fred and Victoria

I’ve signed the petition and think it would be great if every single person reading this signs it, as well. 

The site address again is:
