Experience the Joys and Rewards of the Season
CANADA – Advertising is a major expense for most REALTORS® and a necessary part of becoming recognizable in the community. Sutton Spirit is a free service designed to raise your community profile in a meaningful way. Each week, we promote the volunteerism and other contributions of Brokers, sales associates and staff across Canada. Studies show that not only does it feel great to give back; there are also unique marketing and networking benefits.
Over the years, some of the offices and individuals featured on Sutton Spirit have told us that clients and REALTORS® have contacted them specifically because of our stories highlighting their projects. Others have reported that Sutton Spirit has helped to increase participation, boost donations and raise awareness.
All Sutton Spirit stories are distributed to media and Sutton members in the region. Our site www.suttonspirit.com is an online archive, making it easy to share social media links. We also produce an annual magazine, which is delivered to all Sutton offices.
Contact us to write your story for you free of charge. Our writer will follow up to gather a few details, comments and a photograph or two. In most cases, it requires no more than 10 to 15 minutes of your time.
Autumn and winter are a great time to get into the spirit! Consider these ideas:
Halloween parties can raise money for any good cause through entry fees, raffles, costume contests, photo booths and games.
‘Movember’ raises money and awareness of men’s health issues. It started as a challenge to grow beards and moustaches, but now there are a variety of events across Canada. Learn more at https://ca.movember.com
Remembrance Day on November 11 can inspire people to share their skills with young air cadets and volunteer at care facilities, or donate to legion halls.
The holidays offer many opportunities:
Provide baskets of gifts and food to local families in need
Hold a gingerbread house contest with voting by donation
Host a tour of Christmas light displays
Start a food drive campaign
Shelters need food, clothing and assistance, especially during the colder months.
What are you waiting for? Giving back can be enjoyable and rewarding!
