Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is a proud partner of the Sunshine Kids Foundation. The Sunshine KidsFoundation provides a safe place for children with cancer to relax and just be "regular" kids for a while… a home away from home. The Sunshine Kids believes it found an excellent partner in BerkshireHathaway HomeServices because of the strong parallels in each organization’s philosophy, mission and goals.

Since the inception of this partnership, brokers and agents have generously assisted the SSK by planning exciting fund-raising events, participating in the "listing" program, and taking an active role in activities and national events designed for the Kids.

Because of socially responsible companies like Berkshire HathawayHomeServices Florida Properties Group, the Sunshine Kids foundation is able to carry on with the rewarding work of serving the needs of young cancer patients.


Every employee and agent has the ability to sign up for an automatic contribution per payroll/commission check, with the amount of their choosing. To participate, simply complete the form attached to this article and submit it to your local admin.

Sunshine Kids History

The Sunshine Kids Foundation was founded by Rhoda Tomitsco in 1982 while she was serving as a volunteer in the pediatric cancer unit of a hospital in Houston, Texas. After seeing the loneliness and depression among children during their extended hospital treatments, Rhoda has a vision to provide these young cancer patients with opportunities to participate in positive group activities which promoted self esteem, personal accomplishment and just plain old-fashioned fun!

Today, that vision has been realized many times over, as thousands of children from hospitals across the country have reaped the benefits of The Sunshine Kids Foundation’s many programs and national and regional events. Funded by personal contributions, corporations and foundations, the Sunshine Kids continues, as it has since its inception, to provide all of its activities completely free of charge to the children’s families and hospitals.
