According to the authors of “Forces for Good - the 6 Best Practices of High Impact Non-Profits” the reason Habitat for Humanity has been so successful over the years isn’t because of a lock-tight management model, rigid standards, or high dollar fundraising campaigns. The reason Habitat has helped over a half a million families secure safe shelter is that once people experience the camaraderie and compassion at a job site they tell their friends. Habitat offers a unique “hands-on” way for people to show they care, whether it be pounding nails or preparing meals. When you share your experience with your friends and family through stories, photos or facebook they want to be involved too.
So share us with your social network, either electronically or over a cup of coffee, and help us connect people who could use a hand up with people who care.
