FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, BROWARD, April 8, 2022 / — A company is more than profit and job creation. Every company has a social responsibility and needs to contribute to a better future for society. Under the innovative management of Mr. Augusto Alagia, The Captains, a multitasking company focused on painting, cleaning, handyman, and residential renovations, announces the beginning of an important social action.

March will be the starting point for the program The Captains of Kids, benefiting The Kids In Distress, Inc. (KID), a nationally accredited organization dedicated to preventing child abuse, preserving families, and treating children who have been abused and neglected.

The Captains was founded in 2016 and it has shown a revenue increase of 4,523% in 5 years without any borrowed capital. The numbers and reviews are only positive, which can be proven by the 400+ 5-star reviews on social media channels such as Google, Facebook, Yelp, and others.

Mr. Alagia, a father of two little girls, knows the importance of ensuring a healthy, beautiful, and well-kept environment for children to grow in, that is why The Captains, will offer a premium painting service to renovate a KID on-site-foster home with a new paint job, bringing colors to children’s daily lives.

The renovation project covers the painting of interior ceilings, walls, trims and doors of this home dedicated to keeping sibling groups together. It includes 19 doors, 15+ bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms in this 2,800 sq. ft. property. The purpose is to bring more fun to the environment, including a mural made by Augusto himself.

The Captains defend the idea that EVERY HOME IS A TEMPLE. This social action intends to help, making the foster home a temple of love and care.

The project counts on the important participation of other business partners like Michael Gaurnier (Michael Garnier Specialized Inspection Services) and Jay Granieri (ONE|Sotheby’s International Realty) creating a “chain of good” to improve the quality of life of our children.

To celebrate and deliver the renovated foster home, The Captains will hold an event at their headquarters to raise funds for the continuity of the project The Captains of KIDs. The funds will be raised from the sale of Brazilian barbecue on a stick and caipirinha. Local artists will also exhibit their work, donating a percentage of the works sold to the project. Other forms of donations will be announced at the event.

This idea of fundraising is to help the continuity of the project, improving more and more foster homes and houses of families in distress.

This action will also count on the contribution of Julietta Wenzell, Michael Chau, Racheli Refael, and Travis Rich.
