Why give?

"To our soldiers, ‘going home’ means 10 minutes on the phone hearing a loved one’s voice. If 'home' to our service sons and daughters is a short phone call, then we, as Florida Realtors, should help them find home.” - Wendell Davis, Florida Realtors president.
"When your son is in Iraq or Afghanistan, he’s physically 7,000 miles away, but the distance is much, much farther emotionally. For so many of our sons and daughters, comfort is a phone call. That’s it – their only connection to family." - Patti Fitzgerald, Florida Realtors president elect and mother of two Marines.

"I was able to talk to my wife and family from Afghanistan thanks to the phone cards donated by patriotic individuals, such as Realtors. For that, I offer a sincere thank you." - LCpl Joseph Fitzgerald, Patti Fitzgerald’s son.
