We're at the half way point, and this is a few minutes late, because I wanted to share with you part of the email I received from Alison Amis, who works for the Dallas branch of Habitat for Humanity.

First, she writes this about the houses that have been built locally:
Dallas Habitat has built over 430 homes to date and close to 15 have been all “Women Built” through our Women Build program.

Then she adds this, about donations:
As far as the donations go, there are a couple of ways you can handle your gift –
1.) Donate to Habitat for Humanity International “Women Build”. You will receive a thank you and a receipt for tax purposes.
2.) Donate directly to Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity “Women Build.” You will receive a thank you and a receipt for tax purposes. These funds will be applied to our next Women Build house. We typically seek to build 4-6 Women Build homes in the spring time, leading up to Mothers Day — this has become our annual tradition.

As you know, I've chosen to have donations go to the national fund, because I feel it's more representative of my readership that way.

By the way, Women Build recently completed a project in Mexico – this program goes beyond borders.

I've got 12 more hours to go. My mother increased her pledge to help me reach my goal of $750. If you haven't pledged already, consider following the instructions on my information page and doing so now?

Thank you!
