RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is our annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, we celebrate RED Day as a part of our legacy worth leaving. Making a difference in the lives of others and bettering the communities that we serve lies at the heart of the Keller Williams culture. This observance defi nes who we are and is a natural extension of our commitment to the highest level of professional customer service. Over time, a growing number of our family members and friends continue to participate in this extraordinary event. It embodies the generous spirit and commitment associates have to “giving back” to the cities and towns they live and work in.
Just like the time I had to pick up trash on the side of the road in high school, the McBs are always, always down to ride.
Urban Dictionary defines ‘down to ride’ as “If someone is DTR, it means that they are excited to do basically anything. This is especially true of situations of craziness, ridiculousness, randomness, and spontaneity.” So you can now understand why I used such a silly phrase.
Good news is Kasey complained less this time, and as you would imagine, kept moral HIGH on the job site. I love my DTR family!
Our KW Austin Northwest Market Center teamed up with OSD, Operation Supply Drop, to make RED Day happen this year. OSD “is a global, chapter based, Veteran Service Organization providing relevant, relatable and sustainable impact to the military community through social, professional and service-oriented programs.”
The Market Center split up around the greater Austin area and we were able to help a Veteran family in need in Dripping Springs, right down the road from where I grew up! All the Drip Drops know that means Fitzhugh road, and all the newbies can identify that as the road you take to get to Jester King Brewery.
The first photo above is of our Market Center Leader, Pauly C., showing us all that he doesn’t just swing the Lead Gen hammer, he knows how to work a sledge too.
Overall, it was an amazing day for such an amazing cause. To have the opportunity to help a family so close to home was the water on top of the bonfire. Thanks for keeping that under control too, Kase.
