Want to learn new skills? Help us build a house this summer for @HabitatToronto!
Tomorrow night is our kick-off party for the Habitat for Humanity 2011 WomenBuild! Please join me, Jennifer Valentyne and Monika Schnarre Wednesday February 23rd at 5:00 if you're available and want to help create a hand-built house for a family in need.
- The Women Build will be held for 4 days, May 5th to 8th ending on Mother’s Day
- This is the 2nd Women Build event in Toronto
- Women Builds are held in over 30 countries around the world
- We expect over 400 women to build with us during the 4-day build
- The build site is at 4572 Kingston Road, a 29 townhome development
- We hope to dedicate 2 blocks of homes (12 townhomes) on May 8th immediately after the build (key presenting ceremony to the families)
- No build experience is necessary to build with us! Volunteers will be led by experienced crew leaders who will provide instruction and guidance. Hard hats, boots, tools etc will be provided on-site.
- Women must be 16 years of age or older to participate in the build
- The Women Build is a fundraising event where each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $500 pp to build during the Women Build. Fundraising goal including sponsorships = $400,000
Really hope to see you at the kick-off party and on the build!
