|Habitat for Humanity is challenging New Zealanders to build or make something for a local cause or person in need. You could make a bird feeder for your neighbour, a toy for your local school, or even craft a quilt for a community hospice. It’s totally up to you!
By asking family and friends to sponsor your build, you will also be helping Habitat for Humanity’s vital work in building and repairing homes for Kiwi families currently living in substandard housing.
We know there are loads of creative people and budding DIY’ers out there, so why not give it a go and help Habitat for Humanity and your local community by building something special.
You can BUILD as a team or as an individual. Simply register your build on the Build Challenge website www.buildchallenge.org, receive a Mitre10 Mega $50 voucher towards your materials(Auckland & Hamilton only) and start building. On the Build Challenge website you will find some simple designs to get you going. SUPPORT a team too, by going on the website and checking out all the builds.
The Build Challenge runs from September 1st to October 3rd 2011. A grand finale and prize giving night will take place at Cafe Agora in Hamilton on October 3rd (World Habitat Day). The Auckland finale night is to be confirmed.
For all teams in need of a location and some guidance, Mitre10 Mega is offering you the opportunity to work on your build at the Mitre10 Mega in Hamilton on Saturday 24 September from 10am-2pm. For those in Auckland our workshop in Otara is also available along with all the tools you might need.
