#GivingTuesday

November 28, 2017

On this #GivingTuesday, day after Cyber Monday, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match up to $2 million of funds raised through Facebook. Facebook is going to waive all the fees on this day. This is an awesome time to give to your favorite non profit organization. Anything you give will be matched until that initial $2 million has been used up. This is the easiest way to make a difference! You don’t even have to get up early.. just get on Facebook (which you do everyday already) and click a few buttons.. ta-da! You just made a difference in your favorite non profit organization! 

Here are a few places you can donate to on Facebook on #GivingTuesday:

 

 

Click on your favorite organization above and it will take you straight to their Facebook page where you can donate.

There are so many organizations to choose from. Just remember that on #GivingTuesday, only non profit organizations are included in the event.

 

Give a little back this year!  

 

 

5 Reasons Why – Renter’s Insurance

Don’t have it? Get it. – Renter’s Insurance


Have you been contemplating whether or not to get renter’s insurance? I have an answer for you… YES. Renter’s insurance is a must. You never know what may happen! I could give you a whole book on incidents caused by tenants where insurance, thankfully, covered everything.

So, here are 5 reasons why you should get Renter’s Insurance

  1. It’s Required – Most property management companies require tenants to carry some form of a Renter’s policy. We are one of those companies! If someone doesn’t want to get their own policy, we actually can provide them with a basic liability coverage (will talk more about this in No. 4).
  2. It’s not expensive –  I know this may sound crazy, but… renter’s insurance is not expensive!! Normally its only about $12/month. And trust me, its totally worth it. 

3. It covers your personal property – Although we don’t require your personal property to be covered, we highly recommend you get some coverage for your belongings. Let’s say your neighbor starts a kitchen fire while attempting to cook and your apartment gets smoke damage and none of your clothes will ever smell the same again… Ta-Da! Renter’s insurance will replace those smelly clothes!! – You’re Welcome 🙂

      4. Liability – This is the main thing that our company requires all renters to have. At least $100,000 in liability insurance. Let’s say that you were the neighbor who caused the kitchen fire. The fire damaged the kitchen cabinets and now all the cabinets need to be replaced… at your cost!! Thank goodness you have $100,000 in liability! Your insurance will cover the cost of those cabinets and you will be more careful in kitchen from now on. 

 

5. Peace of mind – Who doesn’t want to feel secure in their own home, knowing that no matter what happens, its just “stuff” that can be replaced and you don’t have to feel the financial burden of it. If paying $10 to $12 a month for insurance brings you peace of mind, then its worth it! (Regardless, it’s required here at EPM)

2. Hope Children’s Home – A transitional home for children who have been taken into protective custody, “Hope Children’s Home is a non-profit children’s home that provides emergency shelter for our foster children in the Cape Girardeau and surrounding counties. ” Definitely check out their website .
