2021 Women Build Fundraiser
Habitat Edmonton is excited to announce the launch of our Sixth Annual Women Build Fundraising Campaign and Build Day! Every year, Habitat for Humanity mobilizes women to raise funds for families who need a safe, and decent place to call home. The Habitat program has a profound impact upon our families’ futures. (see video below).
Our Women Build Virtual Fundraiser and Build Day is an opportunity for women to work towards a world where every family has a safe and affordable place to live.
For 10 weeks beginning April 5, women across northern Alberta will take the lead to collectively raise $100,000. You can join this incredible group of women! The funds raised through Women Build will be used to build homes and serve families in our community!
Women Build is an engaging and rewarding opportunity, and you have the chance to win cool prizes!
In our effort to maintain a safe work site, we will host small corporate groups in the Prefab Shop and provide an opportunity for you to build a simple project from your home: a 2-tiered planter that will be yours to keep! You will join in on the event day festivities (via Zoom), which will include stories from Habitat homeowners, guest speakers, and the chance to learn the details about how your fundraising efforts will transform families’ lives.
- Virtual participants will fundraise a minimum of $500.
- During your build day (June 16, 17, or 18), you will easily assemble a 2-tiered planter and then plant it! The planter is yours to keep, and all building materials are provided! Tools required: screwdriver or electric drill (lumber will be precut for you, no cutting necessary).
- A Team Captain will be available on Zoom to guide you through your build experience!
- Gift certificates for coffee, lunch, and pastries will be included in your build kit. You will be all set for an amazing build experience!
