What are we running for?
As you know, Habitat builds houses, because we believe that a safe house is the basis for a better future. More than 46 million people already live in a Habitat house, but there is still a lot more to do: 1 in every 5 people in the world still lives in a slum!

With the Damloop donations you support the work of Habitat: we still support refugees from Ukraine who fled their own homes because of the war. But we also work in Nepal where we continuously provide landrights for women so they can stay in their houses, also when their husbands are not there anymore. And we continue to work in Uganda, for example, where we not only build houses, but also give young people the opportunity to follow vocational training, so that they can provide for their own income and that of their family. We also provide access to clean drinking water and proper toilets. Together we build better lives!

17-09-2023 | 07:45 Posted on: Sundance #6. Building floors for kids to play on in Nicaragua. I've been up since 3AM.  I'm totally jet lagged. I just got back yesterday from 2 weeks in Chicago. And in a few hours, I'll be running the 'Dam to Dam' 10 mile run with my friend Pepe. Or more likely, trailing way behind and hopefully finishing because I'm way undertrained and exhausted.  Still, I'm running because I can. I have two legs, a pumping heart, and this day ahead of me. And I know that even though I cannot control the weather, I can control my inner world. What I think, what I feel, and what I do is all on me. And I have a strong network of amazing people in my life who always seem to step up and want to help.  So I'm going to ask each of you who reads this to do a little something. If you can afford to give a little to help some kids in Nicaragua get solid floors to play on, please do.  If you've already jumped in and donated to the cause, a sincere thank you. And if you can't afford it at this time, then just do one kind thing for someone today.  You can have much more of an impact than you think. Thanks for your continued support. We can do huge things when we do them together. Jill
