Update:  Diana Cosby’s – Romance Reader’s Build A Habitat For Humanity House! (Contest)
Sunday, September 12th, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…bn100!
*~*~*

My sincere thanks to Delilah for allowing me to return to her wonderful blog and share an update of Diana Cosby’s Romance Readers Build A Habitat For Humanity Home.

A bit of background.  Romance readers are AMAZING, and SO is Habitat For Humanity, a charity that I love supporting and volunteering for.  Several years ago, I thought, why not pair the two and help a deserving family receive a home?  And, the Diana Cosby’s Romance Reader’s Build A Habitat For Humanity House fundraiser was born.

I contacted the Habitat For Humanity office in Grayson County, Texas, where I’ve had the honor of helping with several builds and spoke with Laurie Mealy, Executive Director.  She embraced the project and was thrilled at the thought of pairing romance readers, who love stories where heroes and heroines overcome challenges to make their dreams come true, with making the dream of homeownership for a deserving family a reality.

Goal:  Fund an entire home – $55,000. 

I kicked off the challenge by donating $200.  As I write this, we’ve raised $25,250, and we’re only $2,250 away from having raised ½ of the funds needed to build a Habitat For Humanity Home!  Romance readers are amazing, and I have complete faith that as the stories they love, they will continue to join together to raise the amount necessary to give a deserving family a home.

How it works:

As readers send donations to Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County for the “Diana Cosby’s Readers Build A Habitat For Humanity House of Love,” the total contributions are updated below the house graphic on the upper right side of their homepage near the top.  Donations can be sent via PayPal by clicking on the house, which takes you to the donation page, or by mailing a check or money order to:

Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County
901 N. Grand Avenue
P.O. Box 2725
Sherman, TX 75091

*Please note on your donation: ‘For Diana Cosby’s Romance Readers Build A Habitat For Humanity House.’

Again, my sincere thanks to Delilah for allowing me to return to her blog, and another huge thanks to everyone for helping make an incredible difference in a deserving family’s life.  For when they walk into a Habitat For Humanity house, it’s more than mortar and wood, but a place they can call home.

Contest

ONE winner will be drawn from everyone who posts on my Habitat For Humanity post on Delilah’s blog between 12 September 2021 – 19 September 2021.  The winner will receive a mug!

    My husband and I have supported Habitat for many years; it’s a great organization. They have a great thrift store near where we live and I’ve found many good bargains there.

    ~Hi Mary, so nice to see you again. 🙂 Yes, Habitat For Humanity is a worthy cause. There are tons of women who volunteer for Habitat For Humanity.

    One of the things I love, in my experience volunteering, is when you sign up to help on a build for Habitat For Humanity, regardless of your level of expertise on the task, there’s usually someone there with experience who offers guidance. Through volunteering on Habitat For Humanity builds, I learned how to drywall and install siding.

    Take care, and I hope the rest of your summer is wonderful!
    Sincerely,

    Diana Cosby, AGC(AW), USN, Ret.
