Habitat For Humanity Toronto Ambassador!

I am so THRILLED to announce that I am a Habitat for Humanity Toronto Ambassador! Why? Because I know, being a Mom, the importance of a home (it’s really the foundation of a family).  I am so honoured to be partnered with P & G and Habitat for Humanity to build support, promotion, and homes (33 homes!) in the Toronto area for families…

Do you know about Habitat for Humanity?

Habitat for Humanity GTA is a non-profit housing organization that mobilizes volunteers and community partners to provide affordable housing and promote home ownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.

About the Partnership:

  • Tide, Swiffer & Mr. Clean have partnered with Habitat for Humanity to invest in healthy, happy homes across Canada.
  • The three year partnership, which totals $900,000, will see P&G support Habitat’s family home builds throughout the county, on behalf of its Household Needs brands such as Tide, Swiffer and Mr. Clean.
  • This year, the investment will provide assistance in Women Build projects in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal .
  • P&G will offer cleaning kits to Habitat for Humanity affiliates to help ready the newly built homes for move-in once construction is complete, and will provide welcome baskets packed full of household products to each family moving into their new Habitat home.

I have been a supporter of Habitat for Humanity Toronto for a while now by donating (and shopping) at their Habitat ReStores (great places to find and recycle building and household items).

      I’ve always been curious about a build and am so excited to get the chance to actually join! Love that it’s all women and no experience necessary (why does that make me feel more secure?!)
