Jared Davis, a Prudential California Realty agent, hopes to raise awareness and funds for a Global Act of Kindness trip to Kenya in August. Davis will travel with a group of volunteers to conduct a three-day medical clinic, distribute water filtration devices, and provide shoes and educational supplies for orphaned children in Africa.

Davis and his team are seeking dentists, doctors, nurses, and medical technicians to join the trip and facilitate a successful operation of the clinic. There is also a need for volunteers to help manage the flow of patients, as well other tasks.

“Promoting this trip is very important to me because if our fundraising efforts go well from now until our departure, we should be able to grant several college scholarships to some of the student,” Davis said.

Reach him through Prudential’s La Jolla office at (858) 353-7854 or jdavis5882@gmail.com
Davis also volunteers with the Boys & Girls Club, Cancer Society, Food Bank of San Diego, St. Vincent de Paul and Think Kindness.

He said he excels in his real estate career as a result of watching his mother, a real estate professional for some 20 years. He developed a talent for negotiating and marketing, as well as a capacity for assessing the market value of specific properties.

He completed advanced real-estate courses to earn the Certified Distressed Property Expert designation and the Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource designation. Additionally, he holds a bachelor’s degree in general studies with a minor in journalism.
