Recently (April 7, 2011), a residential contractor (Bobby Johnson) was convicted for scamming a senior couple out of approximately $ 70,000.00. Notwithstanding the details to the case, this is something that's going on throughout America all-year-round. The amounts may differ, but the trails of anguish and the need for justice, are all the same.
It's disheartening things like these which spurred HGRB Services on to launch such entities as "Team Work National."
The campaign is geared towards having at least one indigenous associate volunteer in each of the 50 states.
Each year, there are, literally, millions of American homeowners and homerenters scammed, ripped off, or otherwise caused to lose a lot of money because of dishonest residential contractors.
One of the major reasons there's such a nationwide dilemma is a lack of adequate information. Another identifiable explanation is that there's an extreme shortage of conscientious people for sufficiently and consistently informing our private home dwellers against these things.
I recall a recent radio broadcast where a person who happens to be Canadian severely criticized us for being a supposedly " Christian nation," yet showing very little regard for others. In a nutshell, she was just saying that we're on so much of a "Me" and "Them" trip, that we sort of miss out on the "Us" factor.
I sort of concur. Even a lot of so-called devout Christians are very, very slow on this...but, very quick on the "jungle fever" and on reaching way out there across the waters when we're so far beneath "waters" of our own.
But then, I thank God, in the Name of Jesus, for not only those who talk but don't really walk, but as much I thank God for the few people who are Christians who talk the talk and walk the talk, and for those who are "pre-Christians," walking and talking right along with us.
The irony, however, is that most people are willing and able to be helpful. It's just that many of us don't know how to go about it without making some sort of "sacrifice."
That's just it: the mindset. Perhaps, when we realize how vital this sort of concern is to our own lives, we'll no longer see this as "sacrificial."
Instead of "sacrificial," we see that it's actually and mutually "beneficial." It's a blessing to others and to ourselves.
The people of your state need your help. If you're shy about being around people, you can still help by just researching and sharing information over the internet, and getting other people to do the same.
On the other hand, if you're really great around people, then you can hand out our flyers [or your own} and other hard copy. In addition, you can set up workshops specifically to inform private home dwellers in your state.
