Santa Barbara, CA – December 21, 2011 – RealtyStore (www.realtystore.com), the nation’s premiere consumer resource for foreclosure listings, bargain property information and real estate agent connections, was pleased to both offer financial support and participate in an invitation-only event to benefit the Mona Foundation, an organization supporting socioeconomic and educational development programs for women around the world. The Foundation’s luncheon event, “Christmas with a Purpose”, was held December 20that the Rosewood Sand Hill Hotel in Palo Alto, CA.
The Mona Foundation identifies locally based educational initiatives both in the United States and around the world and establishes long-term partnerships with those organizations demonstrating both a commitment to provide quality education to children and a strong focus to raise the status of women and girls.
This year’s luncheon brought together key executives from leading technology companies, and included presentations and discussions of ways communities can be nurtured and supported to become change agents to positively impact their economic and social development.
“RealtyStore was introduced to Mona Foundation earlier this year. The more we learned about the foundation, the more we liked the idea of offering financial support,” said Tim Chin, CEO of RealtyStore. “Bringing educational resources to underserved communities worldwide requires considerable commitment and dedication. We have full faith in the foundation executing on its agenda, and since all donations go directly to its projects, we feel our contribution has the most impact possible. For anyone contemplaing a charitable donation or conducting broader philanthropic activity, we encourage consideration of the Mona Foundation.”
About the Mona Foundation
