Twin Cities Habitat has included A Brush with Kindness into some of our existing events. Two years ago we highlighted ABWK at our annual gala and raised more money than we have ever raised. We have also included ABWK within our Women Build program which has allowed us to significantly utilize more women volunteers during Women Build week.
A Brush with Kindness has also done a neighborhood blitz of 10 homes within a one week period. This was highly successful and garnered quite a bit of media attention.
In addition, we are looking to include an ABWK event during a summer celebration that exists in many communities we work in. A Brush with Kindness would bring a volunteer componant to their week or weekend celebration.
ABWK special events have helped to raise awareness in our communities of the need to help struggling families maintain a safe, decent home and allows us to raise significant additional resources to serve these communities. Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity
