Could You Lift A Couple of Hippos?

Male Hippo Female Hippo

The average female hippo weighs about 3,000 pounds. And the average male hippo weighs about 3,500 pounds. Do you think you could lift them?

I know I couldn’t. At least not by myself. But teamwork makes the dreamwork.

Red Day KW McLean 2015  KW McLean red Day 2015

Earlier this month our KW McLean/Great Falls office celebrated RED DAY – a day where we totally step away from our computers, lap tops & apps – to give back to our local community. This year, as in years past, we collected urgently needed items to restock SHARE of McLean‘s food pantry. (Now, I can’t lie – we may have been negotiating a few contracts in between collecting for SHARE. But shhh – don’t tell!)

Thanks to all of YOU who helped us. The McLean and Great falls community stepped up as usual and we are deeply grateful. My favorite donor was a guy who walked in with earphones on. He took our flyer & didn’t respond when we spoke to him, so we figured he didn’t hear us or wasn’t interested. Out he came a few minutes later and plopped down diapers in our basket. Turns out he was the Giant Food Peapod driver stocking up for deliveries. What a nice guy!

I am proud to say we collected even more food, diapers & paper products than last year. In fact – we collected 6,564 POUNDS worth – plus $1,137 in cash & gift cards! And it took a whole team of committed KW McLean agents, led by the most awesome Diane Miller, to lift the equivalent of a male and female hippo!

Giving is at the heart of our business. It’s why The Belt Team’s mission statement is “Changing Lives For The Better“. We do more than sell real estate. If you would like to help change lives too, we’d love to invite you to our Annual Keller Williams Charity Golf Tournament, Dinner & Auction. The charities that will benefit this year are “Our Military Kids” and “Semper Fi Fund“. You can help by golfing, shopping, sponsoring & more. Call The Belt Team at (703) 242-3975 for details!
