Charity of the Month: Habitat for Humanity
This month I'd like to highlight one of the best non-profits out there. My time volunteering for this organization was right up my alley. And I do mean that literally - the house that I helped build was right down the street from me! While Habitat for Humanity always invites volunteers to get their hands dirty, they also encourage donations, which for some, is a little bit easier especially for those with physical limitations. For those with a busy schedule, sometimes the greatest donation that you can give an organization is your time.
The day that I chose to volunteer for building this home in North Side it was hot out! But, despite the humid weather, it was so encouraging to see so many ladies in the Real Estate industry giving back to our wonderful community. We had a group of about 10 or 15 women organized to come together and build on that day, so the construction site of volunteers was composed of a majority of women, how awesome is that?
I encourage everyone to get familiar with this organization that is making a difference in people's lives in a big way, EVERY DAY. Time is valuable and sometimes it's the most precious thing you can give!
