. . . is the international day of giving and service that falls annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, immediately after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The day serves as a reminder that even during crazy holiday sales and dashes, the causes we support continue to need our help, and that the act of generosity is itself, a gift.
At Sound Foundations NW, we’ve been in awe of the generosity of our volunteers and donors since we began more than 5-1/2 years ago. Collectively, that generosity has resulted in more than $1.8M worth of donations and over 72,000 volunteer hours to build more than 420 tiny homes, and counting. We couldn’t be more grateful!
We’re all about the joy of having a home, no matter the size, so on GivingTuesday, November 28, we’re hosting a Volunteer Homecoming and we would love your help! Have you built with us before but not for a while? Have you been curious for a while but never helped build a tiny home? On this open build day, we’re especially encouraging past and curious volunteers to sign up, individually or with a friend or two, to come make a difference by helping build tiny homes for our homeless neighbors. No experience necessary – we train willing hearts! Fill out our form at right to sign up, and don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the form and click the blue button to submit. Space is limited to 20 volunteers. Come see what it feels like to build community!
Able to contribute more than time? We also use donations in any amount to enable us to continue purchasing building materials as we build our way toward tiny home #500 early next year! Our goal for GivingTuesday is the cost of five new tiny homes, or $22,500, to keep even more of our homeless neighbors #warmsafeanddry.
Click on the graphic at right, pick an amount that pays for part of a home, or enter a custom amount that feels right. Are you able to dig a little deeper? Would you consider sponsoring a complete tiny home? Tiny Home Sponsors are recognized on our Sponsor Wall and also get to name their home to claim a part of the solution. More details on sponsoring a tiny home are here.
Regardless of the amount, know that your donation is helping buy materials that our volunteers will quickly turn into yet another tiny home to meet the tremendous demand.
Thank You for your vote of confidence and for being a part of the solution to end homelessness!
