Soon you will have the opportunity to impact the lives of Honduran artisans while also supporting local charities by shopping our online boutique of unique, one-of-a-kind hand-crafted decorative pillows. A portion of each purchase is donated to charity.
We are passionate about giving and we know you are too. Because everyone loves to give sometimes we just don’t think we can afford it or we just don’t know exactly how to start. And, because the mission of Heart and Sold Austin is to give back and encourage others to do the same….we are going to show you how easy it is to be a part of the giving movement at an incredibly low cost!
Heart-Felt Closing Gifts
Because our Real Estate business, Heart and Sold Austin, has always given a portion of our commissions from each closing to charity, a “frivolous” closing gift was not considered to be much of a priority at the start. And yet, what we know now, is that Real Estate is more about people than it is about property. In fact, the agent/client relationship is personal, private and confidential and agents will typically talk to their clients at least weekly, oftentimes daily…and during the most critical phases of a transaction, an agent will speak to their client multiple times a day for several days in a row. So, once the transaction is successfully completed…what was once a very steady and constant relationship tapers off and it is often missed, especially when the agent has really gained the clients’ respect and loyalty through the working relationship. For that reason, we reconsidered and realized that a closing gift is a nice way to commemorate that journey.
The problem was the options seemed limited at best. So….we searched far and wide for a closing gift that had a story of its own – one with purpose and something that would really make an impact and allow us to share a story.
Our research led us to a nonprofit organization that supports women in Central America who are learning to combine their embroidery and applique skills with newly learned business skills in a safe, pleasant environment. Today these women are elevating their own lives and achieving greatness in an otherwise incredibly challenging environment as residents of countries in which the average annual income for a family of six was $1800. They are now blessed to make more and work from home so as not to jeopardize their own family to make ends meet.
We formed a partnership with this organization to help them sell their beautiful, hand-made home décor items including: throw pillows, table runners, placemats and more. Their items needed a home and we have many homes that need beautiful, heart-felt items!…the perfect match was made.
Together, we can make the world a better place!…
