Showcasing Fort Wayne - Day 2 - Julia Fiechter and

On a dreary Sunday Laurie and I drove on out to see Julia Fiechter, a creative Fort Wayne Realtor who has come up with a brilliant new way to help the Fort Wayne community - its retailers, its consumers, and yes, its charities!  Check out what we learned in between open house "lookers..."



About JuliaI was a bit confused at first, but now I get it!  Think Groupon meets Salvation Army!  The program is designed to give back by working with local businesses, consumers and charities. Each participating retailer comes up with a creative offer as a customer incentive.  For example, let's take a look at how Bandido's is participating.


Bandido's will give the customer 5% off their bill and donate 5% to the Community Harvest Food Bank when the customer shows their client card.  Talk about win-win-win!Mike Thomas Associates


But Julia didn't just design the program.  She's also an active participant!  As a Realtor with Mike Thomas Associates, Julia has committed to donating 10% of her commissions to the charity of her client's choice.  Now that's putting your money where your mouth is!


You can get your complimentary JFLendingAHand customer card, browse a list of participating retailers, as well as a list of participating charities at Julia's website,
