Secret Santa Week

Real Estate Agent with Albuquerque Homes Realty 16572

Secret Santa Week



It’s true it’s Secret Santa Week!  It’s time to get out and do something to help someone less fortunate.


There are many ways to be a Secret Santa.  Simply drop some cash in the Salvation Army buckets. Homeless Shelters and many other organizations need help too.  Don’t forget the Animal Shelters are in need of assistance especially in winter months.    

It’s not always about money.  There are many people in Nursing Homes, VA Hospitals or Home-bound that would really appreciate a visit or a call. Sometimes it’s as simple as a smile, wink or hug that will mean a lot to someone.

So why wait?  Be a Secret Santa today and then pay it forward 365 days a year in anyway you can.

John McCormack - I feel like visiting nursing homes used to be a bigger priority but seems to have gotten lost a little bit. We need to get back to that!

John McCormack I had to come back to the Christmas posts because it is starting to feel a lot like Christmas. Christmas had me in short sleeves and no coat, windows down showing homes. Now mother nature is making up for it. I booked a trip to the Bahamas the end of February and would have left today if i could have, i just have to make it 3 more weeks.
