History of Sell a Home, Save a Child
Sell a Home, Save a Child Co-Founders Nick Shivers and Erik Hatch had both been loyal supporters of Forward Edge International for several years. After serving on short-term mission trips with Forward Edge and seeing children and communities devastated by material poverty firsthand, they put their heads together and created Sell a Home, Save a Child in 2016. When they came home, they were motivated to share their experience with their colleagues and inspire them to be a part of transforming the lives of vulnerable children as well. It caught on like wildfire.
How it Works + What It Accomplishes
100% of the funds raised by Sell a Home, Save a Child go towards helping fund the Children Programs of Forward Edge International in Cuba, Haiti, Uganda, Kenya, Mexico and Nicaragua. These donations provide things like healthy meals, clean drinking water, education, tutoring and spiritual discipleship for children in need. SAHSAC Members are also given the opportunity to sponsor a child. Says Tyler Heins, a longtime SAHSAC Member and sponsor of several children, “Knowing that my small life is making a big impact by feeding and sustaining lives of children around the world brings me to tears and is as humbling as it gets.”
Since 2016, loyal Sell a Home, Save a Child Members have raised more than $2 million for children in poverty, with those numbers growing everyday. As Real Estate Agents continue to sell homes, they are inviting more people into SAHSAC’s mission and giving children great hope for a purposeful future.
