My company, JMJ & Associates, got its start while the founding members were participating in a charity called The Hunger Project - a partnership that still exists today, and one that has created a defining quality of JMJ ever since - giving back to the community and world through charitable action.
The Blue Steel Team is currently trying to spread the word about our latest charity, One House At A Time, and raise our portion of the overall goal for them, which is $5,000. 1 House at a Time is an incredible charity that helps out families in need with upgrading many of their home's utilities and infrastructure as well as helping them through awareness and education in lowering their overall energy bills so that they don't have to continue choosing between something like paying for electricity, or feeding their family on any given month – something that happens all too frequently. They do this at no cost to the selected family.
In addition, everyone who volunteers on a 1HAAT project not only walks away with valuable insight and ways to decrease energy usage and improve their home that they can take back to their own communities, but they also have the opportunity to create a new possibility for their lives by committing to the changes they want to make in their homes and comminutes while on site, which 1HAAT offers to follow up with them on afterwards and stays committed to seeing them honor that word. This is one of my favorite aspects about the organization.
We're raising money for this awesome cause and getting our hands dirty as well by participating in a 1HAAT event this fall to upgrade a house here in Austin! Please consider donating and helping us meet our goal! If you’d like to learn more about 1HAAT before deciding, you can email me directly OR check them out online at: http://www.1houseatatime.org/
Thank you alland hope everyone is happy and healthy :)
