Habitat for Humanity has to be one of my favorite organizations. Why is it so awesome? Because they give ordinary people like you and me the opportunity to do something I never would have thought I could do!
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that basically provided homes for those with the greatest need. These are people in poverty, people whose homes were destroyed in disasters, and more. They make sure the family is able to pay the mortgage, which is always very small. They do all of the organizing of volunteers, getting supplies, having experienced builders on site, etc. It's great because, well, how many people who aren't builders think they're able to build a house? I'm definitely not one of them! And what's more fulfilling than seeing a family get their very own home that they're going to make memories and spend a good chunk of their lives in?
This is definitely a harder challenge, but it's something that I'm hoping to do at some point in my life! I think it'd be a wonderful experience!
(On a side note, remember Relay for Life? Well, my team is having a bake sale tomorrow, so I made a batch of brownies, a batch of cookies, and some cupcakes!)
