Raise Your Voice for World Habitat Day
October 4th is World Habitat Day, a day designated to bring attention to the dire need for affordable and adequate housing for all. Habitat for Humanity will be contributing to the cause by hosting the 27th annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. This year, the Carters will work alongside volunteers in Washington D.C.; Baltimore and Annapolis Md.; Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn.; and Birmingham, Ala. to build, rehabilitate and improve 86 homes.
How can you contribute?
Advocate: Join a rally, write an elected politician, or start a petition. Make your voice count!
Fundraise: Hold a fundraiser to benefit a non-profit such as Habitat for Humanity, an organization that supports the mission of World Habitat Day. Fundraising not only generates much needed funds but also raises awareness.
Educate: Organize a public awareness event that illustrates the plight of so many and highlights solutions to the problem such as better or additional shelters.
No matter how you chose to commemorate the day, be sure to raise your voice for one of the most basic human needs – the need for shelter!
