NEW YORK, NY – Warburg Realty®, one of Manhattan’s leading residential real estate companies, today announced its participation in the #BringBackOurGirls campaign.
“At Warburg we are committed to using our business platform to highlight critical human rights issues,” stated Frederick Peters, President, Warburg Realty.” We recognize that these acts of violence against children are not isolated incidents and for the next 30 days, the firm will donate $100 per transaction to the International Rescue Committee to support their many activities protecting people impacted by conflict and violence.”
The #BringBackOurGirls campaign was created in response to the April 14th kidnapping of almost 300 Nigerian school girls from the Chibok Government Secondary School. With more than 225 girls still being held captive, the campaign is using the power of social media to keep attention on this crisis and bring them home safely.
In hopes of spreading the word of this now global campaign, Warburg Realty has placed posters in the windows of both its Tribeca and Westside storefront. The firm has also shared posts about the campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
“Through our work with charity:water, I have seen how social media can be an effective and powerful tool for bringing New Yorkers together for a worthwhile cause,” noted Jason Haber of Warburg Realty, “I hope our campaign can play a part in bringing these brave girls to safety.”
