After learning that his hero, #Clemson  quarterback Deshaun Watson, grew up in a #Habitat house and builds homes with his fellow Tigers, J.Z. wanted to build with Habitat, too. Since he is too young to work on a contstruction site, J.Z. thought the next best thing would be to ask for donations instead of presents to celebrate his 10th birthday. On his birthday he handed Fort Hood Habitat $70 and was thrilled to discover that it was enough to cover two windows in a new home.

Too many families find themselves completely on their own in those wrenching days after the storm has passed or the earth has stopped shaking. When disaster strikes, every family needs help to rebuild, whether they’re in your neighborhood or Nepal. With your support, #Habitat can help families restore their lives, so that fewer children like Lijeesha spend their days living in turmoil and their nights sleeping under tarps.

Habitat’s market development and housing microfinance programs are continually pursuing new strategies to assist even more families in need of a safe place to call home.

Peek a boo?

We fool ourselves into thinking our happiness is found in large expensive things. Happiness is provided in the little things. Small acts by ordinary folk.

A shared garden, a busy soccer field, affordable homes — every child deserves to grow up nestled in such a neighborhood. #WeBuild #DoGood
