Conscious Real Estate agents donate 10% of their own commission from a home sale or purchase to a nonprofit of their clients’ choosing.
Conscious Real Estate Agent Kimberly McAleenan is a veteran herself. So, when her clients chose Veterans to Farmers as part of their 10% nonprofit donation, she was elated.
Kimberly explains: “Veterans to Farmers is an amazing organization that helps give Veterans a purpose after getting out of the military. They teach Veterans the tools they need to switch their mindsets from the military mindset to an agricultural mindset.”
“They also educate and encourage Veterans to pursue their new paths to success. This non-profit has completely changed my client Luke B’s life and gave him new purpose,” she says.
More than anything, he wanted a home with a massive garage so he could have a space to grow mushrooms (for cooking not hallucinating!) and also be able to help educate other veterans on the process.
“I am honored to have helped Luke with the VA home buying process and to be able to donate to such an fantastic Veteran non-profit,” Kimberly beams.
Veterans to Farmers is an organization dedicated to “turning protectors into providers” by teaching them valuable skills as hydroponic and in-soil farmers. The goal is a return to the family farm, powered by veterans. Farming is also a therapeutic way to channel their energy following trauma, and of course, can help make new bonds, whether with the plants, or fellow program participants – it gives options for healing, while working toward a positive goal.
Conscious Real Estate is proud to partner with local nonprofits with unique solutions to help people – such as farming!
