This #GivingTuesday, let our most vulnerable know that they’re valuable – and that their futures are worth investing in.
For the price that you would usually pay for a coffee on your way to work/at a meeting/at lunch, you can change the life of a family, by contributing towards building a decent home and a thriving community.
What is Giving Tuesday?
Generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19
Millions of families have suffered the effects of housing poverty for generations, but at a time when a decent home is literally the difference between life and death, Habitat for Humanity SA calls on you to take action against the impacts of COVID-19 on our poorest communities. Let’s let our most vulnerable know that they’re valuable – and that their futures are worth investing in.
We ask YOU to join us in this time of crisis — and to continue to journey with us when the urgency has lifted – to fulfil our vision of building decent homes for all South Africans.
HFHSA cannot face these immense challenges on our own and we are unable to assist communities without your partnership and investment. Where you have joined hands with us in building before, we ask you now to go beyond the build and assist us in strengthening our short- and long-term efforts towards delivering on our combined mission. This year, every rand we raise for Giving Tuesday will go towards increasing HFHSA’s impact on the lives of the families that we build for.
Let’s come together to create a wave of generosity, citizen engagement, action from business and philanthropy, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
Every rand we raise for Giving Tuesday will go towards increasing Habitat SA’s delivery when we return to build.
Here’s what Habitat SA’s community have said about how our work has impacted them:
