Giving back, helping others less fortunate in our community is so important to me and my family.

As such, there are a couple of charities I feel privileged to work with closely. Knowing many people who have fought and continue to fight cancer, it seems it is a disease with an impact none of us can escape. $100 of each sale I close goes directly to the Terry Fox Foundation, a charitable organization that embodies the values of its founder; that funds cancer research projects that are innovative and daring; that has become an important part of community-building and fellowship and awareness. 

I am a proud supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation benefiting Women and Children escaping violence. Each year one of our biggest fundraising events is the National Garage Sale for Shelter. Every dollar raised goes directly to helping the more than 50,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund. Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $27 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charitable foundation and is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs; another reason why I love what I do!
