PARTICIPATE IN AN ONLINE ADVOCACY CAMPAIGN: COST OF HOME
Cost of Home is a five-year advocacy campaign through which local Habitat organizations, partners, volunteers and community members across the country are working together so that 10 million people have access to an affordable home.
Cost of Home has already helped more than 1.5 million people access decent housing through our advocacy to influence policies at the local, state and federal level. But we haven’t reached our goal — yet. That’s why we need you to join us.
PARTICIPATE IN ONLINE CAMPAIGNS
The “Homes, Communities, Hope + You” campaign was initially launched in tandem with the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign on May 5, 2020. Now, we are activating a new social media component. We are asking our friends, supporters, and followers on social media to join our campaign by posting a selfie of themselves or their families with a simple handwritten sign:
“+ me” with location. “Habitat for Humanity + me.” “+ my family.” Or “+ [name].” “+ [name of my city or village].” Partnering organizations can + their names or logos.
This is an unprecedented moment where every one of us has been forced to deeply consider the fundamental importance of home — of having safe, decent and affordable shelter. At the same time, in locations around the world, everyone is looking for ways to bring light and hope to these challenging times. We are never more human than when we come together in an hour of need. Habitat has lived these truths every day for decades. Together, we have accomplished so much. And now we need your help more than ever.
Our neighbors and our communities have been hit hard by the economic shocks of COVID-19. The world already was experiencing a housing crisis. COVID-19 has revealed its extent — and added to its urgency. Think of it: Millions of families already struggling with unhealthy living conditions, lack of access to clean water and the financial impossibilities of unaffordable rent. Now joined by millions more who have lost income as businesses have closed and workers have lost jobs. The need of our neighbors in Hampden County has never been more pronounced.
They need us to help them build back. And, with your support, GSHFH stands ready to stand alongside these families. And not just stand, but build. Build security and stability. Build back the economy. Reconnect communities. Create hope. GSHFH is needed now more than ever. And — now more than ever — we need you.
Help us — in this moment of global crisis — make sure that everyone has a chance at a brighter future. Donate. Spread Awareness. Post a selfie. Share a Link.
