Allowance Donations Make a Huge Impact

Throughout January, Twin Cities Habitat showered gratitude on all the amazing supporters and donors who make our mission possible. We called it "Thankuary."  We wanted to highlight two special, and adorable, donors whose gifts made a huge impact. 

Mies (11 years old) and Jameson (7 years old) gave their allowances to Twin Cities Habitat during Thankuary. We sent some questions to the kids, and their parents, to see what inspired them to give. Check out their sweet answers:

What’s your favorite part of your home? Or favorite room in your house and why? Upstairs living room because it has two big windows and a couch in the very middle of the room.

What do you normally save your allowance for? I don't use it that much (he has saved it for years!) but donating and video games.

What are your favorite activities or subjects in school? Science and art.

What’s your favorite thing to do at home? Play chess, board games, video games and play in the snow.

How does it feel to share your allowance? It's probably one of the best feelings because you know that another person or animal is going to be happy.

What’s your favorite part of your home? Or favorite room in your house and why?
Every one of the rooms because I love to play in them.

What do you normally save your allowance for?
Toys!!

What are your favorite activities or subjects in school?
I like to play baseball and I like reading. I also like playing games with my family. We play games almost every night before bed.

Your donation helped other kids’ parents buy a safe home for their family! Is there anything you’d like to say to those kids?
Hi! I'm thinking of you and I hope you feel safe.

What’s your favorite thing to do at home?
Play with LEGOs!

How does it feel to share your allowance?  
It feels good to share my allowance because I'm helping other people.

From all of us at Twin Cities Habitat, we thank Mies and Jameson, and their families, for the generous gifts. Giving back is something we all know helps make the world a better place. Thank you to all who support Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.
