#GivingTuesdayNow: Homes, Communities, Hope + You
#GivingTuesdayNow is May 5, 2020!
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity as a response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. It’s a day when we can all come together and give back, no matter who or where we are.
Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County brings together people to build homes, communities, and hope. Now more than ever, we need YOU.
We are in the middle of a health crisis that is turning into a financial crisis, which is turning into an even more severe housing crisis. Over 1 million Michigan residents are now unemployed. Moderate to low income households are particularly at risk as a result of their economic instability and their concentration in service industry and other hourly jobs. The economic crisis created by efforts to contain COVID-19 has placed unprecedented stress on the day to day operations of Habitat Oakland, resulting in limited support for our homeowners at the time when they need it most. Everyone is being forced to consider the fundamental importance of home — of having safe, decent and affordable shelter.
On Tuesday, May 5, 2020, we ask that you join people around the world in giving on #GivingTuesdayNow and support Habitat Oakland through a donation so we can continue building a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Our friends at Consumers Energy are generously providing matching funds to Habitat affiliates in Michigan with an extra $1 for every $2 raised. That means a $50 donation would actually be $75 on #GivingTuesdayNow if you donate through our Power of Home donation page.
**Consumers Energy will provide $1 for every $2 donated on donations up to $10,000.**
Want to support Habitat Oakland on #GivingTuesdayNow?
