Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar rings in the holiday season with DIY gingerbread house kits that support affordable housing

ATLANTA (Nov. 22, 2021) Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, the casual dining restaurant chain, is ringing in the holiday season with its popular Houses for the Holidays DIY gingerbread house kit to support Habitat for Humanity International.

“The holidays are a special time to spend with friends and families and our gingerbread houses help bring everyone together in a fun way and for a good cause,” said Laura LaVigne, director of marketing for Lazy Dog Restaurants. “We’re grateful that Habitat for Humanity has partnered with us once again to make this possible.”

“We are equally thrilled to continue our relationship with Lazy Dog Restaurants,” said Julie Laird Davis, vice president of corporate and cause partnerships at Habitat for Humanity International. “Their continued support allows us to help even more families around the world gain greater access to safe, decent and affordable housing.”  

The kits come with pre-cut edible gingerbread walls, roof pieces, the icing to keep it all together and candies for imaginative decorating. They are available for purchase at Lazy Dog restaurants across the U.S. through Dec. 31, 2021, or while supplies last. Patrons can order online for pickup, curbside or home delivery.

Continuing its three-year partnership with Habitat for Humanity International, Lazy Dog committed a minimum donation of $100,000 this year to support the global housing nonprofit’s mission. The net proceeds (sales price less cost of goods) of $2.12 per kit will be donated through Dec. 31, 2021.

About Habitat for Humanity

Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity found its earliest inspirations as a grassroots movement on an interracial community farm in south Georgia. Since its founding in 1976, the Christian housing organization has grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit
