A Message From Linda Gunn Paton
My Mom and Dad instilled in myself and my sister at a young age that we should always give back to the Community we live in. They were always involved in our home town and found ways to give back to help those in need. When I moved into this Community, I brought with me the spirit of giving back.
Habitat for Humanity is new to me this year. I have wanted to be able to participate with this project for many years as I believe deeply in their mission and vision. I am proud to be able to work with an amazing group of women this year to help build a home for a deserving family. I feel this project is filled with optimism and joy, two feelings needed in this world!
About This Campaign
Empowered Women Builders may invite their friends and colleagues to also become Women Builders (each with their own $1,000 fundraising or giving commitment) to join up as a named Team, but everyone is still responsible for their own minimum commitment of $1,000. Women Builders can hold receptions to raise funds, do social media campaigns, etc.
Awards and recognition are given to the Women Builders who raise the most funds toward the home.
One of the best parts is each Women Builder participates in one half day of building that works best with her schedule. Women Builders earn their "Pink Hard Hats" and are invited to events throughout the year where they are recognized for being a member of the "Sisterhood of the Pink Hard Hats".
The funds raised during Women Build sponsor the materials needed for the home. Women Build brings together women leaders to build a home for a hard-working family in the South Florida community.
Interested becoming a Women Builder to help fundraise and build? Contact Kari Oeltjen, Vice President and Chief Development Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
