We learned about the incredible work of Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets from Diva Dweller Cameron. He has long been a volunteer, board member, donor, and all around cheerleader for this local nonprofit, supporting hundreds of homeless, at-risk youth here in Seattle. In Cameron’s own words, PSKS
[serves] homeless and at-risk youth and young adults on Capitol Hill just a few blocks from my place.Â Totally â€œCapitol Hillâ€ in their style: small, scrappy, rough around the edges, grass roots, quirky, totally effective…They take the time to get to know the kids and get them involved in the organization and the broader community.Â That involvement turns into investment in their community, and as a result, in themselves. They have something for just about everyone.
Basically, PSKS and the kids and young adults that they work with are awesome. This is totally something that we Divas can get behind, which is why this past summer, we dedicated ourÂ Divas Take the Hill event toward supporting homeless LGBTQ youth through the work that PSKS is already doing,Â raising a Diva Record amount of money. We were impressed by this small, rag-tag, Ã¼ber funÂ group who are able to do so much to enrich our community and make it a better place.
That is why we are BEYOND excited to be deepening our relationship with PSKS by making them an official Team Diva Real Estate Community Partner.Â What this means if that anytime someone that is affiliated with PSKS or one of its members buys or sells a house with us, we commit to donating 10% of our commission back to PSKS! Although 10% at face value may not seem like a lot, 10% of the commission on a $350,000 house is $1,050 – now that is something that the savvy people at PSKS know how to work with and put to good use!
Another way that you can give a little bit but make a huge difference in the work of PSKS is by attending the Big Annual PSKS Gala Celebration & Auction this Saturday, October 12th. We Divas are hosting a table and have two more spots to fill – so if you love this organization already or want to find out more, all while havingÂ a darn good time, with great food and even better company, get in contact with a Diva about buying up one a ticket to our table. They’ll go fast, so let us know ASAP!
