A day-long event where we invite creative businesses (art directors,artists, designers and illustrators from the art & advertising community in Amsterdam) to donate money and time to turn the house-shaped canvases into pieces of art that will be exhibited and auctioned. Proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity who build (temporary) housing in disaster zones. Get involved!
On Saturday 25 April, 2015, a massive earthquake measuring 7.9 Richter scale shook Nepal. The epicenter was located near the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. Our hearts go out to the people of Nepal and neighboring countries after Saturday’s earthquake and the aftershocks that followed on Sunday.
More than 4,000 lives have been lost and there is massive destruction. Significant aftershocks are causing additional damage and distress. Thousands of people have already lost their lives, with the number still rising. Homes, buildings and entire communities have been destroyed, leaving tens of thousands homeless and in desperate need. People stay in open spaces in fear of new aftershocks and are lacking clean drinking water and electricity.
The team leaves Saturday the 16th of November to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. With 12 participants the team will help to build a house in the Debre Berhan, a village located 60 km from the capital. Follow their adventures and support the team from the Netherlands.
A company has many possibilities to start a project on www.buildwithme.org. Starting from one virtual house to several houses, and from a simple profile to a complete company web page to inform others on the virtual project.
Would you like a your company web page on www.buildwithme.org and start several virtual houses? Or would you, as company, rather help during a global village-trip, or like to sponsor a project in another way? Please contact the Habitat office on +31 20 800 29 70 or on firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to tell you about all the possibilities.
