Clearwater, FL (March 19, 2018) – “Make a difference, give it away” is what local Real Estate agent Jodi Avery is doing with her new initiative called “Giving Matters.” Give Day Tampa Bay is May 1, 2018, and Avery will kick off a program she developed to help local families and charities in need. “Giving Matters” aims to recycle common household goods, clothing, equipment and furniture from homes and turn them into impactful donations.
For the past 20 years Avery’s been selling homes throughout the Tampa Bay area and often finds homes filled with items sellers don’t want any more or can’t use. Many of these items are in good shape and may be useful to others; items like furniture, books, bikes, clothes, musical instruments, cell phones, etc.
“I am excited to share my idea called “Giving Matters,” as it is something near and dear to my heart. My goal is to help charities receive items they need, so they can help others and have a beneficial impact on the community. It is all about working together to make a difference in the community. Someone else’s trash may be another person’s treasure,” said Avery.
Charities and nonprofits can participate for FREE in “Giving Matters” by going to Avery’s website www.jodiavery.com/giving-matters. Home sellers can also go to the website to donate items by clicking on “Giving Matters.” Here is how it works!
1. Look on the “Giving Matters” list and see if any of YOUR unwanted belongings are what these charities need.
2. Call the contact for the organization and let them know you got their name from the “Giving Matters” list.
3. Schedule a time to have the organization pick up your items.
4. Share the “Giving Matters” list with others!
“I hope “Giving Matters” gives you the opportunity to purge your unwanted belongs. These donations may seem small to you but have huge impacts on community and the families receiving them,” said Avery.
Avery and her team pride themselves on making the moving process easy. Avery even created a free book she provides to the public called, Avery’s A-List. It includes the “best of the best” service providers in the Tampa Bay area. Her 2018, edition is coming out soon and will feature “Giving Matters.” For more information contact Avery at 727.238.9660.
