A Message From Donna Bour-Purdy
Welcome to my Flower City Habitat for Humanity - Women Build Page! Thank you for stopping by!
The Women Build team is a committed group of women who build a house from top to bottom, along with the future homeowner. This is our 15th house and I've been involved for 10 years, one way or another. We need to raise $65,000 to help fund the house. Each team member is asked to help with the fundraising through individual or group efforts.
The saying is that homeowners are receiving a Hand Up, not a Hand Out. I can say that this is absolutely true. The family and the entire community benefits - with graduation rates in the 90 percentile, pride in home ownership, solid tax base - to name a few.
I would be grateful if you would consider donating what you can to this program to help me reach my $500 goal.
Please contact me if you have any questions about it.
About This Campaign
To help build: Start your own team or join a public team today! Teams set their own fundraising and building goals, and together we build a house!
Teams are typically co-workers, friends, family, neighbors, or members of the same congregation or interest group. Our public team is: "All The Single Ladies".
Team members each pledge to raise or donate $200 and the team’s total goal is relative to the size of the team. Team members can raise that money by asking friends, neighbors, co-workers, people in their congregation, or family members to donate.
For every $1,000 that a team raises, they can schedule a build day just for their team. There are also “open” Women Build days on which anyone who is registered with Women Build can sign up to build. Meeting new friends and learning new skills are both part of the excitement of Women Build.
Ready to build? Start your team fundraising page now and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your build days!
