BATTERIES PLUS BULBS partnered with Habitat for Humanity this year to provide lighting for several of the organization’s home building projects. Batteries Plus Bulbs has donated more than 182,000 compact fluorescent light bulbs for use in new and rehabilitated Habitat for Humanity homes in several cities in Arizona, Alabama, Wisconsin, Missouri and Washington.
CFLs are said to use one-fifth to one-third the electric power of incandescent bulbs, and last eight to 15 times longer, which will give the Habitat homeowners a long-term, cost-saving benefit for lighting their spaces. The donation is valued at more than a half-million dollars.
WARNER BROS. CONSUMER PRODUCTS, WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT and WARNER BROS. ENTERAINMENT CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY created a national partnership with Habitat for Humanity to launch “There’s No Place Like Home,” a campaign celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the classic film, The Wizard of Oz™.
The year-long program kicked off in early September with a digital fundraising campaign. Throughout the year, the campaign will feature several themed initiatives and events supporting Habitat for Humanity’s work to create decent, safe and affordable housing in partnership with low-income families.
Warner Bros. and Habitat for Humanity offer a dedicated website and corresponding Facebook application where consumers can support the “There’s No Place Like Home” campaign throughout the year. All donations to the “There’s No Place Like Home” campaign will support Habitat for Humanity’s mission to create housing in partnership with low-income families.
GROOVESHARK, an open artist distribution platform with more than 30 million monthly active users leveraging technology to discover and grow the talented artists, joined Habitat as a media partner in 2012.
