Hat's Off to You!

Genworth's 'The Meaning of Home' essay from a Habitat child Genworth's 'The Meaning of Home' essay from a Habitat child


Habitat homeowner Daphne's 12 year old son Kris wrote an essay about "The Meaning of Home" and was chosen as one of 24 semi-finalists across Canada in the Genworth sponsored contest. Kris is very proud of being the only finalist from Manitoba!

He won an Inukshuk made of quartz, while also having Genworth donate $500 in his name to Habitat for Humanity Winnipeg.

Kris told his mother that it feels good to give something back to Habitat after all the opportunities it has given them through home ownership.

Habitat Winnipeg proudly congratulates Kris on his achievement and thanks him for his donation.

Generous Birthday Girl

In the true spirit of giving, young Georgia celebrated her 7th birthday by asking her friends and family to make a charitable donation instead of giving her birthday gifts. Georgia's mother gave her a choice of charities to choose from and she picked Habitat for Humanity Winnipeg.

The birthday party was held at Mr. Putts Mini Golf where family and friends donated a total of $200! Georgia proudly came down to the Habitat office with her mom to present her very generous gift. At such a young age, it's great to see children follow their parent's example of generosity by helping Habitat build better futures for less fortunate families. Way to go Georgia!

École Crane School raises $1250!École Crane School raises $1250!

The students of École Crane School recently held a fundraiser in support of Habitat for Humanity Winnipeg. Each child in the school participated in a Habitat for Humanity project by creating a piece of art (bookmarks, greeting cards, gift bags, jewelry) for an art exhibition in the school library. In addition, the Grade 4 students made 3D model houses and delivered them to the classes as part of a presentation to help explain more about Habitat for Humanity.

During École Crane's Tri-Conferences (May 5 & 6), parents were invited to offer a donation in exchange for a piece of art. The school's fundraising efforts raised $1250 for Habitat for Humanity Winnipeg! Habitat thanks the teachers and students of École Crane for being part of the Habitat School program.
