Let's give something truly meaningful: a life-changing home

546e62f0c740bddf740cedee_me1.png

We recently came across an amazing podcast by the founders of NewStory - a non-profit that is building homes for extremely poor families in places like Haiti and El Salvador - and it really moved us. NewStory isn't your typical charity. They believe in donating to specific families and to a specific cause: safe homes. 

(If you have a few minutes, listen to the podcast here: http://a16z.com/2015/11/27/non-profit-social-tools-homes/)

So this season we are making one simple request: Rather than bringing wine to our house or offering gifts, please join us in helping to build a home. All we ask is for you to donate what you can.

Here is why: 

1. New homes protect families from so many challenges - poor sanitation / illness, theft and child abduction dangers - and help break the cycle of poverty. They provide a foundation for them to thrive. 

2. 100% of your donation directly funds home construction. You can even see a breakdown of the various home expenses.  

3. You will get to see exactly WHO your donation is helping. Once we reach $6,000 (USD) we will get to see a video of the family we helped and the home we built. 

We hope you'll join us in building something truly meaningful this holiday season. 

Many thanks,

Tara & Andy
