More Than 2 Million Reasons

Published on Jul. 13, 2012

Thanks to the support of readers like you, Habitat for Humanity has helped improve the housing conditions of more than 2.5 million people around the world. Each of those individuals is why we build.

Huge numbers of you lend your hands and hearts each year, so that Habitat’s “hand-up” approach can be realized. You give days, months and even lifetimes to our cause. Only rarely, however, do enough of you have a chance to see that investment pay dividends in the lives of our partner families.

With that in mind, we will launch a series of stories on July 18 on habitat.org that will offer an inspiring, personal example each week. These stories from around Habitat's world demonstrate the impact that your continued help allows us to have.

We hope you will join us for our launch and as we present these stories that celebrate the houses you help us build and bless — and the families who have made them their homes.
