Women Build is now Everyone Build!
Rather than framing walls and hanging drywall on our sites, please join us in building hope at home with imaginative, kid-friendly, creative building projects — using materials you already have on hand. We’re inviting you to build community, come together, and make the best of #QuarantineLife through four weekly challenges — participate in one or all four!
Build. Stay home. Repeat. Are you in?
CHALLENGE 4: PAINT, DRAW, OR SKETCH YOUR IDEA OF HOME
Here's how to participate in our final Everyone Build challenge:
Paint, draw, or sketch your idea of home.
Snap a photo of your finished product! Feel free to capture yourself or your family in the photo. Please note that photos will be posted to social media.
Email us your photo and caption here by 11:59pm on Sunday, May 3.
Vote for your favorite submission on Facebook, starting Monday, May 4, by "liking" an individual photo (you can vote for more than one!).
Share our post to encourage your friends and family to vote — hopefully for yours! Voting ends Thursday, May 7.
Watch for the winner to be announced on Friday, May 8.
All submissions from this week will be printed and gifted to all new Habitat Homeowners for the next year as a loving “welcome home” gesture from our community. According to our New Home Construction goals, this would mean that five Habitat Homeowners will receive your creations to welcome them to their new, forever homes. Thank you for being part of our Habitat family and for helping us to build hope at home.
Giving Challenge: Dollar-For-Dollar Match!
As part of Everyone Build, a small group of individuals have come together with a giving challenge to encourage others to contribute if they can at this time.
All dollars raised during Everyone Build will be matched dollar for dollar up to $20,000!
As we shelter in place, we know that many are struggling without access to a safe, stable home. There will be more need for affordable housing in San Diego than ever before, and we must keep building and repairing homes. As you work in your home or office to build in spirit, please consider making a modest donation that will help our construction team keep building on site.
Every bit helps. Join in and give if you can today.
