I'm fundraising for this year's Habitat for Humanity GTA's Women Build!
I'm volunteering my time during their upcoming Women Build event on September 23rd, 2017. It's a great community cause that helps families build strength, stability and self-reliance, through affordable homeownership.
Since 2011, I've been participating in the Habitat GTA Women Build. Habitat's mission is to help build more thriving communities and give those in need a safe, decent and affordable home. I've witnessed dedication ceremonies, where keys were presented to deserving families who are so appreciative of everyone's efforts to help build a roof over their head, providing them with a fresh start, and a safe place to call home. Hearing the touching stories from the families who move into these homes has made me compelled to participate year after year and I'm a strong supporter of this organization.
The Women Build is an excellent opportunity to come together as a team, pick up a hammer, and show our support to those in our community. It is such a rewarding experience, promoting team spirit, empowering women and witnessing the effort that each of our team members put into the build day to help change the lives of others. Many of us work in the field, and this gives us a chance to spend the day learning new skills and experiencing the actual physical labour of day to day construction.
Please sponsor me online; 100% proceeds go towards material for this year's build. Let's continue to support Habitat's mission of building affordable housing and promoting homeownership as a means of breaking the cycle of poverty. Everyone deserves a safe and decent place to live.
