“You took the time out of your lives to go somewhere you’ve never been before, to do something you’ve never done before. We thank you for that.”
Who knew that Giveback Homes would forever change me? Who knew that this amazing guy that was talking to all the volunteers could move me to the point of crying with his hype and his words. Who knew that those Habitat for Humanity homes do not come for free to anyone! You read it right, not FREE. 300 hrs of work on your house plus a monthly mortgage payment will get you into a home once qualified. Do you know what that means? Imagine adding those hours to some that already works two jobs. Now, I do; and I’m be extremely grateful to Intero Real Estate Services for finding Giveback Homes and deciding to partner with them.
Only 6 hr of construction, which felt more like a zillion to me, but it gave me perspective. I learned how much hard work goes into building a home (now I appreciate home builders even more), I learned how privileged I have been all my life and I that made me feel that I had to give back even more than what I am giving now. My goal for 2017 is to contribute $5000 toward the construction of another home. If you or anyone you know would like to make a contribution to Giveback Homes please contact me. There is no better feeling than #Givingbacktothecommunity #forsocialgood #Givebackhomes #karlaarjonasellshomes
