"We are a tight-knit family and RED Day brings us even closer together," said Keller Williams CEO Mark Willis. "We may not all be in the same location, but that's exactly what makes RED Day so impactful across the globe. This day and our philanthropic KW culture will always tie us together."
 
"Every year our associates continue to astound us with their extreme generosity and giving spirit," said Mo Anderson, Vice Chairman of the Board. "There's no doubt about it, KW has some big-hearted associates. The dedication they have for giving back makes us all proud to be working alongside these truly special people."
