Habitat for Humanity and See Jane Do partner for live broadcast
In celebration of the recent Women’s History Month and the kickoff of Women Build 2015, the Nevada County Habitat for Humanity and See Jane Do launched the “She Builds Me Up” social media campaign and celebratory event on Friday, April 17 at KVMR, 120 Bridge St., Nevada City.
“She Builds Me Up” is about women supporting women and girls, and honors the extraordinary women in Nevada County who go above and beyond to lift up their sisters.
Women are encouraged to tag and acknowledge their favorite local “sheroes” on Facebook and Twitter with #SheBuildsMeUp or email their story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the nomination campaign, the public is invited to commemorate these exceptional women and hear their stories at the “She Builds Me Up” wine reception, 5:30-7:30 p.m., and via a live broadcast on KVMR FM from their community room from 6-7 p.m.
Special guests will include Nevada County Habitat for Humanity homeowners and Women Build team members.
The Women Build program empowers women in Nevada County to build safe, healthy, affordable housing for women and families. Organizers said it’s an exciting and fun way to learn new skills, give back to the community, network with other women, and help local women and girls.
Nevada County women have a strong stake in making the local community a better place to live for struggling sisters and their families in the community, organizers said. The program hopes to make a significant impact on an issue that is important to everyone.
Sari Townsend, a future homeowner and single mother of four, who will be a partner in Women Build, is grateful for this program.
Townsend said, “Home is where the heart is, and our family’s heartbeat will be stronger when we have a permanent safe haven. We thought owning our own home was an impossible dream, but Habitat will make it come true.”
Through Women Build, fundraising and volunteer teams, sponsors, and homeowner partners come together for a cause. The groups work side by side to construct houses, help Habitat increase its building capacity, and change lives through homeownership.
