Meaning of Home

The meaning of home is having shelter from the elements of Mother Nature, to be warm, and to feel safe. To be able to enjoy ourselves in the cold and most dangerous days. Home is also important because you won’t be scared that you are going to die that night, or that you will be safe from a huge storm. We know it is possible since we have Habitat for Humanity and they spend one million dollars per year building homes in one year. I was shocked by the good condition of the items which were donated by community members and local businesses. They get a receipt which shows how much their donation is worth, and then they get that amount of money taken off their taxes. Habitat for Humanity gets lots of volunteers to help out with building the houses. They do it because they have lots of love for everyone in their community. Since they are volunteers, they do not get paid.
