Habitat for Humanity of Butte County via Crowdrise

BENEFITING: Habitat for Humanity of Butte County
EVENT DATE: Apr 29, 2012
NOTE: This is just the first fundraiser for this project, there will be many more so please don't hesitate to donate! No matter what, all of your donations will go to the affiliate in Guatemala to help build it!!
Guatemala has an ongoing need for decent and affordable housing. Over 50% of the population lives below the poverty line, and 15% live in extreme poverty. 43% of children under the age of five are malnourished. Proving ownership of land and housing is a major obstacle for many families, even when they have legally inherited or purchased their homes. Habitat for Humanity provides a concrete legal framework so that not only are we building homes, but we are also ensuring that the houses will remain in the family into the future.
My goal is to raise enough money to completely finance a house build in Guatemala and then travel there to help build it!
I will be cycling in the Chico Wildflower Century Ride, a 100 mile bike ride, to help raise awareness of the global need for decent and affordable housing and to raise funds for this project.
Habitat for Humanity of Butte County is one chapter of this major organization, and we are doing everything that we can to help our local community. Please donate to our project so that we can help another community that is in great need.
I am fundraising for Habitat for Humanity Guatemala and am the Director of the ReStore for Habitat for Humanity of Butte County. Please feel free to email any questions, comments, or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond as quickly as I can.
It costs money for us to use this website, so please consider donating through our website or coming into the store! Our site: http://www.buttehabitat.org/
