Ralph Waldo Emerson most notably penned the phrase “A house is made with walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.”
While a roof over our head provides shelter, it is the love inside the home that makes it a refuge. While the walls of a house protect us from the elements, it is the love inside the home that protects us from everything else. While the foundation of a house keeps our feet out of the mud, it is the love inside the home that carries us over all of the other obstacles in life.
At Coldwell Banker, our calling is to help people find a place to call home, and if love is what makes a house a home, we wanted our campaign to highlight how even the smallest of things can fill it with love. This year our campaign was created to remind everyone that home is the place where love resides, and those looking to add more love into their lives need only look at adding a small addition to it – a four-legged one. For the past two years, we have worked with AdoptAPet.com to help find homes for more than 20,000 adoptable dogs. A dog’s unconditional love, eternal forgiveness and innate ability to help you melt the day’s stress away is what can turn any day, regardless of its troubles, into a joyful occasion upon entering that front door.
The physical and emotional shelter that home provides is one of the single greatest investments anyone can make, and adopting a dog into it makes it even more valuable. Find out how you can help find homes for adoptable dogs through the Coldwell Banker Homes for Dogs Project at coldwellbanker.com/homesfordogs.
Whether love is represented by family, friends, passion or even a furry friend, we hope your home is filled with “Somebody to Love.”
