H is for helping others. Habitat for humanity always puts the people in need first by building homes for either homeless or others in need of a home. A is for adding homes. Habitat for humanity is adding homes because they make people feel safe, cared, appreciated and loved. B is for building friendships. When you volunteer for habitat for humanity you help others and make friendships that will last a lifetime. I is for initiative. The dictionary defines the word initiative as “the power or opportunity to act or take charge before others do”, but I think initiative describes habitat for humanity very well because habitat for humanity took charge of helping those in need. T is for teaching. You teach younger kids to volunteer and you set good examples for younger generations to come. A is for action. Unlike big corporate businesses, Habitat for humanity takes action to help others by building homes whenever they can. T is for thoughtfulness. Habitat for humanity is very thoughtful to others making homes for those in need, if you are in trouble, Habitat for Humanity will always be there right by your side. Dear habitat for humanity, habitat is a great charity that I will volunteer for when I'm 18 but I appreciate all the things Habitat for humanity does. I can't do a fraction of what you guys do everyday. I'm going to try my hardest to maybe do a fraction of what you guys do every day.I hope someday everybody has a place to call home and if that does happen it will be all because of you, Habitat for humanity. Thank you so very much for letting me compete habitat for humanity and thank you for all you have done.
