Our first Green Goo donation for the Season of Goodness is to Habitat for Humanity. We're sending them 40 gallons of hand sanitizer this week!
If you're new to the fun, each week until the end of 2020, Green Goo is going to donate gallons of hand sanitizer to organizations close to our hearts and to organizations you choose until we reach our goal of donating $100,000 worth of products. You can nominate a worthy organization by entering our Pay It Forward $500 Gift Basket Giveaway or, if you've already entered, you can stop by our website and nominate even more nurses, firefighters, or schools for the hand sanitizer giveaway!
Back to this week's recipient
If you read Kelly’s blog, then you know that his cousin works for Habitat for Humanity. The local chapter did a lot for families and our community after the flood here in Lyons in 2013. Since then they have built the first affordable housing units in town post-flood and they continue to move families into homes despite the pandemic. What that blog didn’t say was that his Uncle also works for Habitat in Greeley, Colorado. Acts of service run in their blood.
After talking to the family a bit we realized we could do more. So, we’re going to send 20 gallons of hand sanitizer to the local Longmont Habitat and 20 gallons to the Habitat in Greeley. We’re excited to be able to help this group fulfill their mission, if only in a small way.
More about Habitat
Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat works toward our vision by building strength, stability, and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.
We’d love for you to make your own donation to these great groups!
But to really appreciate how much they do and how they are changing lives, we recommend volunteering. There’s nothing quite like working a long day at a habitat ReStore, shoulder to shoulder with people from your community, or building a house with the people who will be calling it home one day.
