|BE #UNSELFIE AND GIVE THE GIFT OF HOPE
We have two days for getting deals for ourselves – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season”.
Millions of people have come together to support the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. #GivingTuesday includes people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. Together, millions of people demonstrate our common capacity to give.
Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent homes. The families put in up to 500 "sweat equity" hours to help build their homes. Habitat homes are then sold to the families at no profit and financed with loans that have market value interest. Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity relies on the generous support of our sponsors. Donations help make the mission to provide safe, affordable and decent housing possible.
When you donate $25 or more, you will receive our fun #UNselfie t-shirt as a way for us to say thank you for your selfless act of kindness and generosity to help our mission of keeping hope alive!
We will also be treating our top donor to a $100 Target gift card to help with holiday shopping!
