Schmidt Family of Companies Support Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey is devastating the lives of millions of people in Texas and Louisiana and is now on schedule to become the most extreme rain event in U.S. History with over 50 inches of rain from a single storm.  It is a natural disaster of epic proportions.

Our hearts and prayers go out to those families dealing with the loss of life and for the people whose lives and homes have been disrupted by the rain and floods. There are still so many that need to be rescued and many more that need food and shelter.

While there are many ways to donate, we have chosen the Realogy Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity.  They have established a fundraiser in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey where Realogy has pledged to match up to $75,000 in donations raised through the Foundation with 100% of the proceeds of this campaign being delivered to the American Red Cross to directly help all of those affected by this storm. 

We have an opportunity to make a great impact on giving.  With over 1,300 agents and 200 employees; imagine what $20 a person could offer to those affected by this devastating event.  With your generosity, we could raise over $30,000.  Ken, Mike and Tom have started our giving campaign with a donation of $2,000.

You can make a donation by credit card through All gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.  Let’s show the impact that the Schmidt Family of Companies can offer by following these steps:

  1. Under Donors Full Name, please put your individual name.
  2. Under Company Name, please put SCHMIDT FAMILY OF COMPANIES (even though this is an optional field).

Thank you in advance for your generous consideration and please feel free to share this link with friends and family who may wish to contribute as well.
