Dear Dave,

Every natural disaster that happens around the world makes us appreciate our own good fortune.  These disasters that can affect thousands or millions of people may also encourage many of us to open our wallets (as we are able) to give to the charities of our choice, to alleviate the suffering of those affected.  I can imagine that many of our thoughts and prayers are currently with the people of Nepal, still reeling from the devastating earthquake, aftershocks and avalanches.

In any destination (vacation or otherwise), there are people who are much less fortunate that we are.  Not surprisingly, all of our clients contribute a lot to charities in their local communities in Mexico and Hawaii.  Knowing this can make our mutual clients feel even better about their vacation spending, when they know that part of their vacation money is going to do some good for local people or environment.  Enjoy reading about these contributions about our accounts that you may not have known about...


Happy selling!
Dave Emery
