WHD 2012 Outreach Program


Middle IslandNew York


Oct. 01, 2012


Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk County (Long Island, NY affiliate) will be shaking things up a bit this year.

Our event is pretty simple yet ultimately effective. By Monday, October 1st, 2012, we hope to have met our set goal of raising $100,000 to sponsor a whole house, in honor of World Habitat Day.

In the days leading up to World Habitat Day, Habitat Suffolk will be plastering all of its social media accounts, sending out digital newsletters to more than 26,000 supporters, and documenting the details and progress of the event on our website, which will be fully equipped with a countdown timer.

A fundraising page will be set up for people to donate directly to, and it will allow people to see the immediate progress being made towards the goal. There will be a final push of gargantuan proportions on the final day to donate, World Habitat Day. Essentially, we want to “build a house in a day”
