Gettin' our hands dirty

It's the 2nd annual Habitat for Humanity Build-a-thon and it continues all the way through Sunday! We were out this morning volunteering with an awesome crew to get 4 homes done by the end of this weekend.

There were 20+ volunteers there before the sun even came up ... just amazing! We broke down a lot of barriers and mis-conceptions this morning that I think a lot of us were probably confused about.

Did you know??
- the home are NOT free. Home owners pay a no-profit, no-interest mortgage
-home owners must put in 500+ hours of sweat equity into building their home (and those of their neighbors)
-they must be a resident of King County for at least one year

Here's the thing ... they NEED YOUR HELP! Visit to volunteer. They can use material donations, service donations (landscapers, tradespeople, etc), and of course your time! Who knows, you might make a new friend ... a total win-win!
