Why Support Fairtide?
In 2013, Fair Tide launched the One Warm Night campaign with the sponsorship of Seacoast real estate professionals. A “warm night” is a $31 donation, the estimated equivalent to housing an individual at Fair Tide for 24 hours.
Participating real estate professionals donate “Warm Nights” to Fair Tide after every sale. The amount of the donation can vary with each sale and is up to the donor.
Former Fair Tide Board President Brad Hirst said the formal collaboration with the real estate community “seemed a natural fit.” Greg and Kathy Gosselin, owners of Gosselin Realty Group in York, Maine, helped develop the concept and have superseded Fair Tide’s expectations of donation amounts.
“To me, it seemed to be a perfect fit to work with Fair Tide and to help people in need of a warm and safe place to live, which is what real estate is all about.”
“Fair Tide is a wonderful program for our community and I welcomed the opportunity to participate.”
“It’s the right thing to do.”

“As a realtor, housing people is always on my mind. When I heard about this program to provide a warm night to someone in need, it just hit a nerve and I knew I wanted to be part of it.”
