A Boise real estate agent has committed to setting aside $500 of the money he earns on each home sale he makes, and donating that money to local nonprofits that help veterans.
Robert Farias has already donated $500 of that money, and plans to make another donation soon, according to a news release. The donations are part of a program called 22-0 Real Estate, affiliated with Keller Williams Realty in Boise. Farias, himself a military veteran who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, chose the name in reference to the 22 veteran and active duty suicides that occur daily. His goal is to donate the money to nonprofits that “advocate for veterans at risk of suicide and homeless veterans,” according to the release.
He’s aiming to raise $25,000 for the non-profits in 2019 through the sale of 50 of his clients’ homes. In addition to that, he’ll also help another nonprofit raise money through a raffle at the giveaway of a Harley Davidson Street Glide on April 27th.
