When Cristin Wilson wants to show her appreciation for a client, she opts for a gift of appreciation with long lasting impact. In 2019, Cristin decided to make a donation to The Mayday Foundation, in the name of each of her clients, upon finishing a mortgage transaction.
Accel Mortgage’s tagline of “friends helping friends” goes one step further with this donation. Each donation means life will be a little brighter for local families coping with cancer.
“I strongly believe in the importance of giving back to the community,” said Accel Mortgage’s owner, Cristin Wilson, who runs the business with her husband, Craig. “I was born and raised in Olympia and want to support local non-profit organizations that make a difference in the part of our lives that matter most – family and health.”
Like most of us, Cristin has personal experience with a loved one’s cancer diagnosis. “I do know the feeling of being called to be told a loved one has cancer. It rocks you to your core and you feel as if time has stood still while everyone else is going about their daily lives,” said Cristin, noting she appreciates The Mayday Foundation’s commitment to helping families cover household expenses while coping with cancer. The Mayday Foundation believes no family should be forced into bankruptcy or become homeless as a result of a cancer diagnosis.
Each person named in Cristin’s donations receive a handwritten thank you note, informing the client of her gift as well as explaining its purpose in the community. “It was an easy decision to support The Mayday Foundation. I appreciate the organization that allows families to focus on healing instead of the financial strain of cancer. The disease brings enough stress and I am pleased to lift the financial burden a bit,” said Cristin in summary.
