[green-hous ih-fekt] -noun The phenomenon whereby the kindness and goodwill of one organization is trapped within the atmosphere and causes warmth and compassion throughout a system resulting in a green house.
Construction on the 1,350-square foot home, located near downtown in the historic Cottage Home neighborhood, is scheduled to begin on July 21, and a dedication ceremony will be held on September 3...but not without your help. Habitat is currently about $20,000 short of its fundraising goal. When we heard about the organization's green initiatives and the Pye family (the home's future owners), we couldn't help but lend our support. Giving is easy through our secure PayPal link. Or, if you're more of the hands-on type, consider rounding up a group of friends, colleagues, or classmates to volunteer at the building site. You can also donate items to be used in the house, or drop off gently used home and building supplies at the Habitat ReStore.
Rome wasn't built in a day, friends. Then again, Rome didn't have your Brangelina-like sense of compassion and generosity on its side. With your help, we can create a greener environment for one Indianapolis family - and the planet.
