In the Lower Mainland, there exists a shining example of compassion that brings warmth to the coldest corners of our community—the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive. Originating in 1994 from the simple desire of Vancouver REALTORS® to make a difference, it has grown into a remarkable annual tradition of kindness that touches the lives of countless individuals facing homelessness and poverty.
Diana, with a heart as warm as the blankets she collects, humbly has stepped into the role of coordinating the Richmond/South Delta leg of this drive for many years. “It's not about one person; it's about the collective effort that warms the hearts and bodies of our neighbors, reminding us all that a small act of kindness can have a big impact,” Diana says.
Year after year, her dedication transforms her community into a hub of generosity, bringing holiday warmth to those who need it the most. With an inspiring commitment to their communities, REALTORS® have collected enough donations to help over 480,000 people in need. In the spirit of collective goodwill, it stands as a testament to the transformative power of small acts of kindness.
