East Windsor, NJ (PRWEB) January 23, 2006
Blogging Systems LLC (http://www.bloggingsystems.com), a Princeton, N.J.-based Internet-services company that provides blogging services to the mortgage and real estate industries, has announced it has become a corporate sponsor for Millstone Basin Area Habitat for Humanity Inc. Blogging Systems is committing to donate 1% of its profits to the affiliate for its work in building simple, decent homes in East Windsor and surrounding towns.
Blogging Systems founder Richard Nacht decided that in order to be a good corporate citizen, giving back to the community would be essential for his young company. Nacht says he has an affinity for Habitat for Humanity because of the direct connections his company and Habitat have with the real estate community.
"Blogging Systems focuses on making real estate agents better connected with the community they serve by using the dynamic nature of the Internet," Nacht said. "Habitat for Humanity has a natural link with the real estate industry because of its house-building mission. I think it’s a very nice fit. And I’m proud to have the company I founded give back to this very worthwhile charity."
"I was also very focused on finding a charitable organization which is doing work locally. I feel it’s very important to support the local community," Nacht said. "Habitat is a great choice for a company like Blogging Systems because Habitat is an international organization with a long track-record for success, but its affiliates are locally run."
Glenn Fannick, president of the Millstone Basin affiliate agrees that the connection to the local business community is vital both for companies like Blogging Systems and for Habitat. "One of the things I’m focusing on as president of the Millstone Basin affiliate is finding companies in the central New Jersey area which are looking to have their corporate charitable giving be distributed locally. Businesses want local recognition and they want to help people and their communities who might be their customers and their employees."
The Millstone Basin affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International completed its most recent construction project in East Windsor, N.J., in January 2006 and is targeting the start of the next house for the spring.
