Don’t forget #GivingTuesday is next week! What is #GivingTuesday? It’s a global day for giving back! On Tuesday, December 2, 2014 businesses, families, community groups, students and charities around the world will come together to celebrate generosity and to give. So how will you celebrate #GivingTuesday? Consider giving homes and hope here on Kaua‘i.
Before you start decking the halls this Holiday Season, make sure you stop by ReStore® first! Our seasonal inventory is huge and prices are GREAT! Not to mention the fact that all sales from ReStore® help provide affordable housing on Kaua‘i.
Make sure you stop by Hawaii Life Real Estate’s display table at “Flavors of Kukui‘ula” this Friday, November, 21 2014 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm! We are excited they will be showcasing Kaua‘i Habitat and our programs, including our new “Club 84” where folks can make a monthly donation to help fund a home in ‘Ele‘ele. Hawaii Life will also be hosting the Hawaii Homeownership Center’s Homebuyer Education Class in the Hawaii Life office at Kukui‘ula beginning at 5:00 pm. Our own Development Director Milani Pimental will be speaking at the beginning of class to congratulate attendees on becoming educated on the homeownership process and provide information of the possibilities available at Kaua‘i habitat.
Mahalo First Hawaiian Bank employees for doing not one, but two Community Care Days with Kaua‘i Habitat! Last week they took to the job site in Anahola. This week they tackled the task of putting up the fencing around the ‘Ele‘ele Iluna Subdivision. It just goes to show how much can be accomplished when the community works together. We are so grateful for all the volunteers that help build homes and hope on Kaua‘i!
Our AmeriCorps crew just returned from the National Service Leadership Conference in Alabama! While there one of the activities they participated in was a talent show. Click here to see Kaua‘i’s own Howie Apilado performing ukulele and treating the Alabama audience to the island version of Sweet Home Alabama!
We just turned in our application to host Women Build on Kaua‘i! Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity International program that encourages women to make a difference by building homes and communities. Women Builds provide an environment in which women can feel comfortable learning construction skills they might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn. We are looking forward to recruiting and training women to build decent, healthy and affordable homes on Kaua‘i. This national event will take place the first week of May. So if you are interested in learning some construction skills and would like to promote a world where everyone has a decent place to live, stay tuned…
