Right now, more than 4,000 people are on the waiting list for affordable housing in Calgary.
Our city is expensive, and women and children are the populations most likely to be affected by unstable living conditions. Women Build gives our community the chance come together to address this need.
Over six days in May, you'll have the chance to work under the guidance of experienced construction professionals, and alongside other Women Build participants and future Habitat homeowners.
Whether you’re learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience, and improves the communities that we all share.
Join Women Build in 3 simple steps:
1.Create your personal fundraising page
The fundraising minimum to participate is $350, but we know you can go higher, so reach for the stars!
1.Raise your $350 minimum
Send emails and post on your social networks asking family, friends and your favourite people in the world to help you reach your fundraising goal.
There are six Women Build days in May, with a limited capacity on each day.
If you're fundraising as a team, each team member will receive the link to pick their day once they've reached their personal fundraising minimum, so be sure to communicate regularly and cheer each other on!
**You cannot reserve a space to build until you've reached your $350 minimum, so it's best to move quickly, especially if you wish to build with a team or group of friends.**
And, as a participating charity in Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink, donations to Women Build 2020 will be matched up to 50% making your fundraising efforts go even farther. For more information on Birdies of Kids please visit the Shaw Charity Classic website.
