Counting our blessings

The Earth’s population recently surpassed 7 billion. Did you know that more than 1.6 billion people lack adequate shelter — or, even worse, have no shelter at all?

If you are blessed to have a place to call home this Thanksgiving, please consider supporting Habitat’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Your support is one of the many things we have to be thankful for this holiday season. We are also grateful for:

Volunteers who build houses and hope … both at home and abroad

Habitat partner families who work side by side with new friends giving a hand

Givers of gifts both big and small

Advocates who lend their voices

Partners and supporters whose efforts beyond the worksite make sure our work continues

Prayers lifted up by the thousands that sustain us each day

Leave a note in the comments below and let us know what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving season.

And if you’d like to share the hope of home with others, please consider a gift to support Habitat’s efforts well beyond this holiday season.
