Habitat for Humanity 2015
Change of Plans - Event #6
I know I say this about all of my events, but I'm genuinely excited for this one!!
One of the key pillars for Change of Plans is to create events to help people in our COMMUNITY to overcome challenging times in their lives.
I'm happy to announce that on Saturday June 6th, 2015 Change of Plans will be participating in the Habitat for Humanity program!
We are looking to assemble an enthusiastic team of 20 people who want to have fun, help raise funds for a good cause, and to put in some physical labour to help build a house in Scarborough for those who are less fortunate.
I'm positive that this team will be a cohesive & productive unit on site, will have a great time, will smash the $2,000 team donation goal, and will walk away feeling satisfied that they actually contributed to our community.
What's involved? Each person on the team will be responsible to raise at least $100 for Habitat for Humanity. That shouldn't be too hard to do. And then on the day of the build, each person will be on site from 8AM to 4PM, doing various tasks to help build a house. The crossfit junkie in me is secretly hoping I get to do some heavy lifting.
Want to be on the team or just donate? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you want to be part of the team or if you want to donate to this project. Once, I have assembled the team, I will send out an email to introduce everyone and to share "next steps".
When do we need to finalize the team by? I'm aiming to have the final team roster by Sunday April 12th (only 2 weeks away!), so please let me know if you're interested ASAP.
This is the first Change of Plans Charity event (to date), but it will be the first of many!
I look forward to working along side some of you!
Here's the game plan
8:30 AM - At this time, we will receive a short safety training session. Then we'll be split into smaller groups and led through projects by Crew Leaders who are experienced construction volunteers.
Throughout the day there will be coffee breaks, a well-earned lunch, as well as team photos that are taken throughout our "Change of Plans" build day.
4:00 PM - Build day is finished!
