I’ve just signed up to run in the Habitat for Humanity 12 Annual Home Run, hosted by Stanford University, so I’m going to need your help in donating some money towards the organization!
One sack of cement……..
One sturdy front door………
One complete kitchen………..
Giving a hard working family a chance to own their own home…
Participate in the 12th Annual Stanford Habitat for Humanity Home Run!
It is a 5K/10K walk/ run benefiting Habitat for Humanity and Global Partners for Development on Sunday, Nov 11.
Habitat for Humanity works with people from all walks of life to develop communities and build affordable ownership housing, in which families can live, grow and build their future. These families receive a “hand up,” rather than a “hand out.” Partner families invest 500 hours of their own labor—sweat equity—into building their houses alongside community and corporate volunteers. After the house is built, it is sold to partner families at no profit and financed with zero interest mortgages. These payments will go towards the construction of other homes.
Global Partners for Development partners with local communities in Eastern Africa, striving to end poverty and hunger through numerous projects that include development of clean water sources, child nutrition, medical and health care, primary and vocational education, and women’s economic self-reliance.
