RE/MAX celebrates 40 years of giving back to communities

This year marks the 40th anniversary of one of the world’s largest real estate franchises – RE/MAX, the leading global real estate brand. RE/MAX of Southern Africa will commemorate this remarkable achievement on 30 January 2013, known by those in the RE/MAX family as Founder’s Day, the day on which the brand was created.

Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says that RE/MAX offices around the world will mark Founder’s Day with a number of events and celebrations. Over the past 40 years RE/MAX has taken the opportunity to celebrate Founder’s Day by giving back to their local communities in various ways. He says that globally RE/MAX is proud to have raised more than $100 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Komen for the Cure, Reach for a Dream and other charities.

“Locally RE/MAX of Southern Africa has donated in excess of R7million in the past seven years to charitable causes, and will continue this tradition by launching the first initiative of The RE/MAX Foundation, a non-profit charitable organisation that aims to uplift the lives of families and individuals in need,” says Goslett.



Through The RE/MAX Foundation, offices across the RE/MAX of Southern Africa area of operation will be invited to engage with their local communities by collecting both toys and books for a local orphanage, crèche or charity that they nominate. Members of the communities are encouraged to participate by donating the items and dropping them off at their nearest RE/MAX office or with their RE/MAX agent. The toys and books collected will be distributed to the various institutions on Founder’s Day, 30 January 2013.

“This is the first campaign of many that will be administered by The RE/MAX Foundation to continue to build up the communities in which RE/MAX of Southern Africa operates. One of the brand’s mottos is that we don’t just work in a community, we live there to,” says Goslett. “RE/MAX of Southern Africa is therefore committed to uplifting these communities and the people that live there,” he concludes.
