Smile Habitat for Humanity - PEI, Canada - May 29 - Jun 19, 2011

Hi there - Why not join me (next to my 13 foot Boler), in Prince Edward Island, from May 29 through June 19?

Habitat for Humanity (HFH) runs an RV Care-a-vanners group, where people from anywhere bring their rigs, of any size / configuration, to help build housing for local people who meet certain criteria (see that info below). this is strictly volunteer work for no pay, but usually/sometimes a lunch is provided. This group is looking for 12 rigs.

It's fun ! I did three builds last fall - two in Michigan, one in Minnesota. each with a different group of people from all over the U.S.. After working from about 8 - 3, we had a 'happy hour', and lots of conversation, games, and even some touring the area together.
Parking was provided - for the PEI build it's $15 /night.

No special construction skills are needed - "a willing heart" is required, as is a hammer and good boots.

I see from the website that this is a "Three Week Build Building a split level home for a family of 10. Type of Work: Wall raising is May 28th and framing for 3-4 days, drywall, finish work."

For more info, and to sign up, go to:

RV Care-A-Vanners Program -- Habitat for Humanity Int'l

*Criteria for Habitat beneficiaries:
1) Currently live in sub-standard housing (one family my Care-a-Vanners group helped last fall had 10 people living in 2 bedrooms.)
2) Put in 500 hours of sweat equity;
3) Be able to pay a no-interest mortgage.
