Habitat for Humanity Volunteers Build Dog Houses
Story by Nicky Walters

CHARLESTON -- Habitat for Humanity is known for helping people, but Sunday their mission went to the dogs.

The group marked its 20th anniversary by hosting a dog-house building contest. Volunteer teams worked for hours to make the structures without using power tools.

Many of the competitors had no carpentry experience, but they were happy to roll up their sleeves for a good cause. The dog houses will be for sale at Habitat for Humanity's ReStore and the money will be used to help families in need.
I say, buy a bus and bring these kinds of ideas out by the busload!

What a great charitable and fund raising idea! I would love to see some shelters perhaps work with their local builder supply, and local carpenters to put together a project to help raise money for their shelter. You could even bring in some local celebrities to put their celeb touch on the houses, and auction them off to the highest bidder. Celebrities always bring out the media!
