April 6, 2021 (Newswire.com) –
No2go.org is the first virtual chapter for Folds of Honor. Founded by Ginger Bell and launched at the EPM – Broker Success Summit event in Atlanta, GA. EPM kicked off the launch with a generous donation of $40,000 to Folds of Honor. The chapter is the first of its kind for Folds of Honor. In 2020, Ms. Bell co-produced a Folds of Honor documentary. Through this documentary, she learned about the impactful stories of family members who have been affected by having a family member injured or killed while serving in the military. This inspired her to start a virtual chapter for Folds of Honor dedicated specifically to the housing industry. Last year, Folds of Honor was able to provide educational scholarships to over 3,000 family members of wounded and fallen soldiers, but in that same year, they tragically had to say no to roughly the same number of applicants.
Ginger Bell, Founder of No2Go said, “Our goal is to turn the 3,000 no’s that Folds of Honor was not able fulfill, into go’s and provide additional funding and awareness to this incredible organization. That’s why our motto is No2Go and why we started the foundation, No2Go Foundation, dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the Folds of Honor educational scholarship program.”
EPM is the first organization to join the No2Go Foundation as a Founding Lender.
“I had the honor of watching the Folds of Honor documentary and am inspired by Folds’ mission and commitment to the families of our heroes,” Eddy Perez, CEO of EPM said. “EPM is a people company that values education, and I am excited for the company to participate in a program that allows individuals to continue to learn, grow and succeed. It just makes sense to give back to our veteran families, especially those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.”
Folds of Honor Executive VP of Operations & Relationships, Colonel Nick Nichols said, “We are beyond excited to partner with No2Go and are so thankful for their incredible life changing support. Together we can ensure that no military family is left behind on the field of battle. The gift of education provides generational change and is a lasting bridge to equality especially for the 41% of our recipients who are diverse. We salute you!”
No2Go is a virtual chapter for the Folds of Honor nonprofit organization. Set up as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the goal is to raise awareness and increase funding for the Folds of Honor foundation within the mortgage and real estate industries. We have thousands in our industry who serve the veteran community through the VA home loan program, yet many have never heard of Folds of Honor. Our goal is to raise awareness amongst the veteran community through an outreach program as well as raise funds that will go directly to Folds of Honor. Our mission is to change those No’s into Go’s.
