Global Outreach Efforts

This May, Dan and Susan will help build a home in Cape Town, South Africa through Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village program.

Our team will consist of about 15 US-based volunteers. Our goal is to build one home in 7 days with the help of local volunteers and craftsmen. Unlike many other Global Village trips, our team has agreed to finance the entire cost of the home ourselves. To meet our goal, we need your help.

How can you help?
We are selling fleece hats to raise money to pay for building materials. These hats are handmade by Dan and Susan. Each hat features our Hats 4 Homes logo, see above. Although we are willing to sell the hats without the logo, we hope that by displaying the logo, we can increase awareness of the need for affordable housing for people all over the world.

Hats are $15 each plus $5 for shipping. 100% of your contribution will go toward building this home.

Hats are available in many different colors. Each hat has four panels on top and one band. So you can pick up to four top colors and one band color. The standard band size is approximately 20”. To order one or more send your color choices, any special size requests, and your mailing address to Susan.Hendrickson@colorado.edu. For example, “alternating red and white with a red band”. Color choices include: black, beige, yellow, red, powder blue, royal blue, forest green, plum, hot pink and purple.

There are two ways to pay for the hats. You can send a check to Susan Hendrickson, PO Box 2020, Boulder, CO 80306. You may also contribute directly to our secure Habitat for Humanity websites.

If you would like to support us but don’t need a hat, we are happy to receive donations too.

Thank you for supporting this worthy cause.
