I visit the ReStore multiple times a month, sometimes multiple times a week. I just never know what I am going to find. The fact that I am able to find furniture for great prices, re-love them into something beautiful to me is a pretty sweet deal. Some days I find nothing but others I leave with a van full!
Knowing that the money goes into building or remodeling a home in the community adds a nice icing to the layer!
My husband's uncle is a home builder (he built our amazing home), and worked with Habitat for some time.
It brings in revitalization into the community, brings a sense of accomplishment to those that volunteer, and offers a home to someone that needs it.
I recently attended a blogging conference in Atlanta, GA. The Haven Conference. It is a conference where DIY-ers, crafters, and the like all come together in one big bloggers arena! We connect with bloggers from all over.
Haven has teamed up with Habitat for Humanity on July 26, 2014. And, it's not just in Atlanta... It is a very special, international wide, one-day event!!
There are many ways you can lend a helping hand. You can volunteer at your local Habitat for Humanity, visit the ReStore and make a purchase. You can also make donations whether it be furniture or household items. Every little bit helps! Please visit the Habitat website HERE to learn more!!
What can you do?
Do good…on a grand scale!

I'd love to see pictures of any of my followers/readers in your purchased tee. Or if you volunteer/donate, or if you visit your ReStore to make a purchase. You can take the picture and send it by twitter, instagram or Facebook. I will do a blog post to show the world... Let's blow their socks off!!
