MT. ANGEL (September 20, 2010) – The United Nations has designated the first Monday in October as annual World Habitat Day. World Habitat Day 2010 will be held on October 4. Events to celebrate this day will be taking place around the world October 3 – October 8.
Are you a volunteer or partner family with a powerful story? In honor of World Habitat Day, NWV Habitat will be holding our own World Habitat Day Share-a-Thon on our Facebook page. Between September 20 and October 3, we encourage you to post your personal story. We are looking for just a few sentences on how you got involved with Habitat or how Habitat has impacted your life as a volunteer or as a partner family. On October 4, World Habitat Day, all posts to NWV Habitat’s Facebook wall will be entered into a random drawing. Two winners will be chosen to receive a gift package and NWV Habitat staff will choose a number of stories to feature on the new NWV Habitat website as well as in our newsletter. The gift package will include a Habitat t-shirt, a water bottle, a Mt. Angel ReStore gift certificate, and an assortment of other Habitat goodies. Join us on Facebook today.
Stories must be posted on NWV Habitat’s Facebook wall by 9 AM PST, October 4, 2010 in order to be included in the drawing.
