Tess And Heather Prepare For Kalamazoo Valley Habitat For Humanity Women Build

Getting ready to take part in Habitat’s National Women Build Day!

Tess Taylor and I have committed to rolling up our sleeves and getting down and dirty with Habitat’s National Women Build Day this May. We figured we need some practice using a few tools around the house, but come to find out Habitat for Humanity will train us on everything we need to know to help.

This is the 10th annual build and thanks to Lowes, it will be a fun week! Power tools and new homes makes the Morning Mayhem happy. In case you don’t know about Habitat for Humanity here is a little history for you.

Habitat For Humanity started in 1942 and the tale goes like this…

“The Jordan and England families found Koinonia Farm, a community where all people are treated equally, resources are shared and great responsibility is placed on being wise stewards of land and natural resources. Koinonia supports its work and community by selling what they grow and produce: eggs, chickens, milk and hogs.”

Then in 1977…

“Habitat for Humanity International is formally incorporated under the laws of the state of Georgia, March 18.”

Since it all started so many lives have been enriched with hands working together.

Here is exactly what happening in Kalamazoo this May…

“Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity and a future homeowner family will work alongside Lowe’s volunteers and all-female construction crews for Habitat for Humanity’s 10th annual National Women Build Week, May 6-14. Habitat’s National Women Build Week invites women to help make a difference and devote at least one day to help build decent and affordable housing in their local communities.”

Tess and I would love for you to join us! So ladies, throw on your grubby jeans and grab a hammer, hope to see your there!
