Today we’ve been inspired to take a look at a Home for Hope builder who loves to say “thank you” in extravagant ways.
Rosewood Communities is a family-run home building company based in South Carolina that absolutely loves culture and tradition; and building Homes for Hope has been a part of that tradition since 2011.
To-date, Rosewood has built 3 Homes for Hope and just recently kicked-off their fourth home in a truly unique way – by taking their trade partners to play golf and picking up the tab.
I recently had a phone call with Rosewood’s owner, Mark Nyblom to get the scoop on the event:
“The invitational is something we do every year as a way of showing appreciation to all of our trade partners. This year, we coupled it with a trade partner meeting/groundbreaking to kick-off the start of our next home.”
This was the first year that Homes for Hope was a part of the Rosewood Invitational, and Mark loved the added dynamic.
“I particularly enjoyed bringing H4H to the invitational this year – it made the event more than just about having fun, but to make it last and have an impact. Jack presented an executive report to our trades that illustrated the global impact of our Homes for Hope, and they loved it. He also lead a group activity that illustrated the power of microfinance, and it really clicked with them – they get it.”
During our conversation, it was clear that Rosewood’s team is passionate about building community & culture with their trade partners. I asked Mark what motivated him to choose golf and cover the bill for everyone:
“That’s who we are! You know, golf is something that our trade partners don’t get to do that often. These guys are working really hard all year, but nobody ever just takes them out.”
Homes for Hope is grateful to Mark & his team at Rosewood Communities for inspiring us with their commitment to fighting poverty globally, as well as their ideas and innovation for loving people well.
