CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK
At RE/MAX, we believe that serving the communities in which we live and work allows us to not only contribute to the well-being of our society but to also be concerned about the outcome of that contribution. This dedication we call Premiere Community Citizenship. Our commitment as the exclusive real estate corporate sponsor for the Children's Miracle Network allows us the opportunity to expand the universal cause of caring for sick children.
The RE/MAX - Children's Miracle Network affiliation began in 1986 when RE/MAX affiliates in Calgary, Alberta and the Quebec Region started raising funds for this worthy cause. In 1992, RE/MAX International adopted the Children's Miracle Network as its official corporate charity. Raising funds for hospitalized children, to date RE/MAX professionals have collectively contributed over $76 million to the cause.
In Canada, RE/MAX continues to be a strong corporate contributor to the Children's Miracle Network - $3.5 million in 2006. With funds contributed by national sponsors like RE/MAX, the affiliated hospitals are able to provide needed medical care and equipment for more than two million Canadian children every year.
RE/MAX of Western Canada affiliates raise funds through community involvement such as the annual Children's Miracle Network broadcast, pancake breakfasts, golf tournaments, ride-a-thons, walk-a-thons and a myriad of other events. But the cornerstone of our involvement is the Miracle Home® Program whereby the sales associate pledges a contribution derived from each transaction involving a RE/MAX Miracle Home®. 100% of their contribution helps sick children from their community.
RE/MAX chose the Children's Miracle Network as its international charity because ...
• The Mission Statement of the Children's Miracle Network, an international non-profit organization, is to "Generate funds and awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its associated hospitals". An outstanding cause!
• RE/MAX lists and sells homes with the very families whose children have been served, or may one day be served, by a Children's Miracle Network hospital. One out of ten children will be treated at a Children's Miracle Network hospital by the age of 18.
• RE/MAX stands for quality service and for caring about the communities where its Associates live and work. RE/MAX makes the world a better place to live through Premiere Community Citizenship.
As for us, we make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network in your name with every completed transaction. It's just one of the ways we like to give back.
