Cutler Realtor Jim Camp Brings Awareness with Daffodils Across Ohio

The Ohio state flower is the carnation, but there are plenty of other beautiful flowers adding their colors to life throughout the state. One of them is the daffodil. Also known as the narcissus, the daffodil has been a symbol of rebirth for thousands of years because it's one of the first flowers seen every spring.

Realtor Jim Camp of Cutler Real Estate wanted to find a way to honor the nearly 800,000 Americans who have perished due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That figure includes nearly 27,000 Ohioans. Virtually everyone has a friend, neighbor, or family member who has suffered.

Jim is well known as a team player. He believes it's important to come together to tackle big challenges. It's just as crucial to remember our past and where we've come from. As the holiday season arrives, so many people will be thinking about those they've lost. Jim wanted to do his part for their memory.

Daffodils Across Ohio - Fairlawn, OH - Cutler Real Estate

Jim, the son of a broker, was licensed in Philadelphia at age 18. He settled in Ohio soon afterward and first held his Ohio brokerage license in 1978. Since then, he has had the opportunity to touch the lives of thousands of families and had received heartbreaking news from many people throughout 2020-2021.

To recognize the hard work of frontline workers as well as those lost from Northeast Ohio to Columbus to Cincinnati and beyond, Jim proposed the "Daffodils Across Ohio" service project. The goal was simple: Gather enough daffodils so they could be planted and provide new life all throughout Ohio.

The Buckeye State will now bloom with thousands of daffodils thanks to Jim and his colleagues.

Collecting More Than 14,000 Daffodils

Jim's vision was quickly embraced by his team at Cutler Real Estate. But everyone knew they had to go beyond their own office, even their own network, to make the biggest impact possible. Word spread quickly from Cutler Real Estate through Ohio's community of REALTORS.

All in all, Realtors purchased and planted more than 14,000 daffodil bulbs.

In late November, a donation of 500 bulbs was received at Ohio's statehouse in a grand ceremony. Gov. Mike DeWine, Sen. Jay Hottinger, and a variety of other community figures accepted the donation on behalf of state residents. Jim noted that his idea was inspired by Gov. DeWine's 2019 inauguration speech, where he related that his father, then battling cancer, encouraged his children to plant daffodils in the fall so they would remember him in the spring.

Daffodil Donation - Cutler Real Estate

In 2020, Jim received the Mary L. Pollock Lifetime Achievement Award for his decades of tireless service to the real estate profession. "Daffodils Across Ohio" is poised to become another important part of his legacy. It also speaks to the dedication, camaraderie, and community spirit of Ohio's REALTORS®.

Ohio REALTORS® President Seth Task noted that the response of the state's real estate professionals to "Daffodils Across Ohio" was "remarkable." He also thanked Jim for his unique contributions, saying, "each spring, hundreds of daffodils will emerge across the grounds of our beautiful Statehouse." This would serve" as a reminder of our loss and tribute to the can-do spirit of the first-responders and health care professionals."

Daffodils Across Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

Columbus: Where to Give Blood On World Blood Donor Day

Blood Donation - Columbus, OH - Cutler Real Estate

Could you spare a pint of blood for those in need throughout Columbus?

Believe it or not, you can "bleed" for a good cause without any pain or discomfort. In fact, a few minutes sitting on a comfortable chair is all that's needed to save a number of lives. Donating blood is one of the easiest, yet most selfless acts that you can do. If you've never donated blood before or haven't in a few years, now is the perfect time to perform such a heroic deed.

June 14th, 2020, is World Blood Donor Day. Organized by the World Health Organization, World Blood Donor Day is an annual event designed to raise awareness and spread education about the many benefits of blood donation. This international celebration unites us all in a quest to preserve the wellbeing of our communities with the life-saving gift of blood.

World Blood Donor Day began in 2004 in an attempt to raise awareness of the need for safe, clean blood, as well as to recognize the many selfless donors who voluntarily save the lives of thousands by simply donating their blood a few times each year.

Why are Blood Donations so Vital?

A post shared by Vincenzo D'Anniballe (@vincype) on

Think about how much any donation can impact a community. A few dollars can feed a person struggling with homelessness, a few donated clothing can help a family, and a few hours of volunteering can benefit countless members of our society. While time, money, and effort can go a long way in helping our fellow neighbors, blood donations can make quite an impact in ways that we may not even realize.

Like other donations, blood donations are used in a variety of ways. In some cases, donated blood is used in planned medical treatments such as blood transfusions. Donated blood is also used to facilitate urgent medical interventions, such as when an individual has lost a significant volume of their own blood due to an accident, injury, or natural disaster.

What many individuals, even some donors, don't know is that blood is also used for healthcare in other, long-term ways. Many blood donations are saved in a blood bank for future use while others are sent overseas to countries that do not have safe or sufficient quantities of blood. Blood plasma donations can also be used for other medical treatments.

Facts About Blood Donations

A post shared by Red Cross Central/Southern OH (@buckeyeredcross) on

When you donate blood, every drop counts. While it may seem odd to think that something every human has is in short supply around the world, the reality is that there are thousands if not millions of men, women, and children across the globe that cannot obtain the clean, safe blood that they desperately need to restore their health. Here are a few vital facts about blood donations that we believe you should know:

  • A single blood donation can save as many as three lives.

  • Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood donation.

  • 62 percent of the population is ineligible to donate blood.

  • Type O blood is the most requested blood by hospitals, because Type O negative can be given to all blood types, but only 7 percent of the population in the United States are Type 0 negative.

  • Blood cannot be manufactured artificially; it must be donated from volunteers.

  • Over 117 million blood donations are collected around the world each year.

  • Over 65 countries collect less than 10 donations per 1,000 people.

  • Blood transfusions account for 75 percent of adults over the age of 65 in high-income countries.

  • Nearly 80 countries around the world rely on voluntary unpaid blood donations for 90-100 percent of their blood supply.

  • Blood transfusions account for 52 percent of children under the age of 5 in low-income countries.

Would you like to learn more about donating blood? Here are a few frequently asked questions prospective donors inquire about via the American Red Cross:

  • How old do I need to be to give blood?
    Most states require a donor be 17 years of age or older, but some states do allow 16-year-old individuals to donate with parental consent.

  • How often can I donate blood?
    A donor may donate blood at most once every 8 to 16 weeks.

  • Does donating blood hurt?
    When the needle is inserted into your arm, you may feel a quick, small pinch.

  • When will my body regenerate my blood?
    While your red blood cells require around six weeks to regenerate, your plasma will regenerate within one day.

  • How long does a blood donation take?
    On average, the actually donating process takes around 10 minutes. However, the registration process and recovery process will add time to your visit. Budget around one full hour to complete the full process.

How to Support Columbus Organizations With Mask Donations

Mask Donations - Columbus, OH - Cutler Real Estate

COVID-19, typically referred to as the coronavirus, has impacted every aspect of our daily lives. Social distancing and quarantine-appropriate behavior have forced many of us to work, study, and spend all of our free time at home. Even with plans to begin re-opening the state in May, the CDC is still encouraging all individuals to wear protective masks when in public. Our healthcare workers, emergency personnel, and other essential workers have an even greater need for personal protective equipment (PPE).

At Cutler Real Estate, we consider the health and wellbeing of our family members, friends, and neighbors throughout the community to be a top priority. In these unprecedented times, we must come together and do our part to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus around Columbus. By making, wearing, and donating homemade masks, we can decrease our chances of spreading or contracting this virus.

The Importance of Masks in Fighting COVID-19

The coronavirus is a microscopic virus that is small enough to pass through nearly all facial coverings. However, when someone infected sneezes or coughs, the virus attaches itself to water molecules before leaving the body. Facial coverings made of nearly any fabric can effectively contain these water molecules, essentially providing a significant element of protection that everyone has immediate access to.

The masks that are most effective at preventing the spread of coronavirus are N95 surgical and procedure masks, which are typically used in healthcare settings. Although these forms of PPE are available for the public to purchase, government officials are asking that these masks only be reserved for healthcare workers who are constantly at risk of coming in contact with infected individuals. However, all other non-medical individuals can create homemade face masks to wear or donate to others in need.

How to Make a Homemade Mask Without a Sewing Machine

For a quick and easy no-sew way to make an effective mask using materials in your home, refer to these instructions provided by the Center for Disease Control.

Steps for a Bandana Face Mask

  1. Fold a square bandana in half.

  2. Fold the top down to the center and the bottom up to the center.

  3. Feed the folded bandana through two rubber bands or hair ties.

  4. Fold the ends of the bandana to the middle and tuck them into the bands.

  5. Place the mask across your mouth and hook the bands around your ears.

Steps for a T-Shirt Face Mask

  1. Cut across the stomach of a t-shirt roughly 7-8 inches from the bottom.

  2. Cut a rectangle out horizontally in the center of the shirt about 6-7 inches in.

  3. Cut the edges of the open side to make tie strings.

  4. Tie one of the tie strings around your neck and the other around the top of your head so that the cloth covers your nose and mouth.

How to Sew a Homemade Mask

If you're interested in sewing your own mask, the CDC also offers guidelines. For this task, you'll need a sewing machine, scissors, a needle and thread, two pieces of elastic-like rubber bands or hair ties, and two pieces of cotton fabric measuring 10"x6".

  1. Cut the 10"x6" fabric pieces out of a large cloth such as bed sheets or blankets.

  2. Place them together and fold over the long sides ¼" then hem. Fold the fabric over ½" over the shorter sides and stitch them down.

  3. Thread the elastic through the openings on the wide side and tie each side in a knot to create ear holes.

  4. Place the mask over your nose and mouth, adjusting as needed.

Keep these tips in mind when using homemade cloth masks:

  • The mask should fit snuggly without restricting your breathing.
  • They should be made of multiple layers of fabric.
  • They can be washed and dried in the washing machine and dryer without incurring damage.

Columbus Donation Locations

If you have the time and materials, please consider making extra homemade masks to donate to those in need. Here are a few organizations around Columbus that are accepting donations of PPE.

Helping Frontline Workers

If you know of any other healthcare or frontline facilities accepting donations of homemade masks or other critical PPE, please let us know in the comments below.


Have a Drink For a Cause at Cutler Real Estate's 2019 Karma Keg Events!

Who knew helping someone in need could be as easy as enjoying a drink at a local brewery? At a Karma Keg, a monthly event hosted by Cutler Real Estate throughout Ohio, you can support local organizations by doing just that!  

What is a Karma Keg?

The Karma Keg is the brainchild of Vinny DeFrancisco of Cutler Real Estate. After hearing of a similar concept in Houston, he decided that such a wonderful event needed a place in the Midwest. Today, the Karma Keg is more popular than ever, bringing charitable beer lovers from all over Ohio together for a great cause. What is the great cause? We won't know until the end of the event. One of our favorite parts about the Karma Keg is that none of the charities are chosen in advance. As you arrive at the event, you'll make a donation to drink from the keg. Towards the end of the night, a name is drawn and all of the funds raised from that night are given to the charity of the winner's choice. Anyone in attendance (21 and over of course) is welcome to join in! Since its inception in 2017, Karma Keg has raised thousands of dollars for local charities, including the Refuge of Hope, Creative Living, the Habitat for Humanity, Canine County for Independence, and the Akron Children's Hospital! Your favorite charity could be next! The 2019 events will take place between April and September in beloved venues all across the state, from neighborhood breweries to upscale distilleries. Read on for the full schedule!
