WD-40 Brand launches second annual campaign to raise funds for safe, decent, affordable housing
ATLANTA (Feb. 2, 2021) — WD-40® Brand is partnering with Habitat for Humanity for the second year to support the nonprofit housing organization’s global efforts to help more families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable shelter. WD-40 Brand is launching a three-month campaign to engage its customers and raise funds to support Habitat’s program and advocacy work to bring to fruition a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
In participating Lowe’s Home Improvement stores from Feb. 2 through April 30, WD-40 Brand will donate 50 cents from every purchase of a 12 oz. can of WD-40 Smart Straw™ to Habitat for Humanity. WD-40 Brand will contribute up to a total of $50,000 to Habitat to support the nonprofit’s work in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and more than 70 countries.

“WD-40 Brand’s continued partnership is helping us make a difference at a time when affordable, stable housing is more important than ever,” said Julie Laird Davis, vice president of corporate and cause marketing partnerships at Habitat for Humanity International. “We’re honored WD-40Brand is choosing to engage its community of customers to help us serve more families and build stronger communities around the world.”
Since WD-40 Brand kicked off its first campaign to support Habitat, the company has donated $50,000 to the nonprofit.
About Habitat for Humanity
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since 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 habitat.org.
