"Everyone out there is looking for donations -- there are so many causes and if you want to feel that you're giving to an organization that's doing something real for people and for families immediately and see real results, you can know that if you donate anything at all to Habitat for Humanity, whether its money or your time, its really making a difference in people's lives and I think that's what you want to feel when you give."   Homeowner, Tracy
