Why Houses For Harvey
Read our CEO and Co-Founder’s letter to the “FlyHomes Family” below:
To the “FlyHomes Family” –
I’d like to share a story with you about my college friend, Kaycie, who just closed on her first home purchase. Like many of you, she had dreamed about the idea of investing in a home for years. Unfortunately, I learned this weekend that the home she bought was in Houston — and because of Hurricane Harvey — her entire investment was literally under water just a week after moving in.
Kaycie is just one of the many victims of Hurricane Harvey, and I’m sure several of you share similar stories of someone you know that has been impacted by the storm. Many of us on the FlyHomes team have family and friends who have lost their homes and personal belongings in the hurricane.
As a Texan, born & raised, I must admit that despite the devastation, I’ve never been prouder. The outpouring of support for those in need has been overwhelming. 18 volunteers helped my friend Kaycie and her family clear out their flood damage this weekend, and I have been moved by the stories on social media capturing the brave volunteers who are helping thousands of people begin the long rebuilding process.
FlyHomes Wants to Help.
A few days ago, we had a team meeting to brainstorm how we could help. Although it’s impossible for our team to volunteer after work to help those impacted directly in their home, we are passionate about helping remotely. So we’ve decided to volunteer as a group to do what we know best: helping people win homes.
Houses For Harvey
FlyHomes will donate 100% of its commissions, up to a total of $100,000, to the Harvey Relief Fund, for potential homeowners that signup over the next 7 days and want to help Hurricane Harvey victims.
All potential buyers need to do is text “Harvey” to (206) 202–4224. One of our teammates will reach out to explain the program and then we’ll get to work helping the potential home buyer (and Harvey victims) win a home.
How you can help: We are hoping to share this program far and wide in the Seattle community this week, with the goal of blowing through our initial goals and would love any support you can provide by sharing this in your network. We’ve included the link to our blog post announcing the program, we’d love it if you could share it!
Let’s win some “Houses for Harvey!”
