WBJune1213bAs we take a bit of a break – take a look at the lovely deck that is waiting for a house to be built upon it in JOSANA. We’d like you to now picture yourself raising a wall of that beautiful house alongside your team members. If you’re digging what you’re day-dreaming then be sure to join us at the Women Build Wall Raising event.

Women Build Wall Raising
Saturday, August 3rd
Women Build house, 10 Kondolf Street
All teams are invited to join us in raising the wall of the house (each team will have their own opportunity to raise the wall for a photo-op). We’ll raise the wall 27 times if all teams are there!

Come on down and enjoy the fun – pictures are great to send to all your donors to thank them for their support so they can see you really are building a house!

Building a Strong Foundation

Can you believe it’s JUNE?! Even more exciting, can you believe we are a shy $5,000 from being HALF-WAY to funding the 2013 Women Build house?! What an incredible and inspiring group our Women Build teams are this year.

As we take a break from building this June and July (we’ll be back pounding nails, building walls, and raising the roof this August) we thought we’d take you down the journey of where we’ve been.

A house can’t be a home, a safe haven from the world, without first having a strong foundation – and our 2013 Women Build house is no exception. So thank you to all of the volunteers, Women Build teams, and donors who helped make this foundation possible.

While we’re on building hiatus, we’ll still be raising funds! Don’t stop asking your friends, family, and network for support. And feel free to join us at any of the events listed below:
