It's November 27—Happy Giving Tuesday!

Giving Tuesday is a "global movement to inspire individuals to help others through the gift of time, donations, goods or using their voice in support of a cause." This year, we're asking supporters to sign up to support our Multiplying the Impact campaign, as we seek to double the number of Habitat homeownership opportunities we're able to provide for local families.

This past Monday, over 220 Habitat supporters gathered alongside staff to celebrate the public launch of our Multiplying the Impact campaign at McNamara Alumni Center in Minneapolis. The new campaign is centered around the goal of more than doubling the number of homeownership opportunities Habitat is able to provide over the next few years.

Twin Cities Habitat relies on support from the local community in order to carry out our work each and every day. The material donations and financial contributions help us combat high costs associated with construction and repair work, and helps to keep mortgages affordable for homebuyers. One group of donors help to lay the foundation for our work by making convenient, ongoing monthly contributions to our organization. These sustaining donors are members of our Carpenter's Club.

With the Minnesota State Fair and back-to-school in full swing, and a big donation season (and sale!) on the horizon, our team is recruiting some extra helping hands to help out our stores during late summer and early fall. We've also worked once again with the talented Amy Matthews to bring you another helpful DIY tutorial, plus Jan shared some of her great DIY ideas with fellow fair-goers.
