Habitat for Humanity

As many of you have noticed, I am passionate about being able to give back with my show. A portion of my proceeds goes to benefit a organization that I choose to support. This April show, I have chosen Habitat for Humanity. When I first chose this charity, I loved what they do and I thought this would be a great organization to donate to since they use a lot of recycled items. I thought they just built houses for the unfortunate. After I have spent time with this organization, I have realized that it is much more than building houses. It is about poverty. In this economy, that could be you or me. Many people do not need a hand out but just a hand up. They are hard working families that are at poverty level and cannot house their families. Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that is an ecumenical Christian organization comprised of individuals, churches, businesses and organizations, without reference to race, creed or religious affiliation, committed to eradicating poverty housing from San Luis Obispo County. Using volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates homes with the help of future homeowners, our Family Partners. Houses are sold to Family Partners for no profit, financed through affordable, no-interest mortgages.

I am honored to be able to help this organization in anyway I can so be sure to stop by their booth and learn about their organization.
