Well it has been a crazy day getting up early to interview Kevin Brown, VP, Chief Marketing Officer of Home Appliances for Sears Holding Corporation at the crack of dawn. After that, I was building a fence all day until we got rained out and in a little bit – am off to a reception- nuts! But I wanted to get a blog post off to you quickly. You see, Kevin “gets” New Orleans as he was born and raised here. He is very proud of working for Sears and being part of Heroes at Home for the past 4 years. Sears has raised over 10 million dollars mostly by consumers at Sears and Kmart giving a buck here and there at the check out. What really impressed me is 90 cents on the dollar goes directly into the project. They have completed 750 homes and of course, furnished them with appliances. Now let me remind you, Sears is not paying me to write this, but is sponsoring me so I can be part of the Fifty for Five program this week. Yep, I’m darn impressed with Rebuilding Together as a whole, but thrilled that Home for Heroes is helping veterans (you know that is my passion).
