Hammer Challenge

Take the Hammer Challenge!

In an effort to eliminate substandard housing, Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County challenges you to take the Hammer Challenge. In the NEXT 48 HOURS, commit to volunteer ONE day in the Habitat Restore or at a home build site AND/OR donate $20 or more. Want to make a really big difference… tag 2 friends to join you in the challenge to hammer out poverty housing.

Make a video or take a selfie with your hammer and post it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other social media sites. Copy the text below and challenge your friends to join the cause.

Since I have a hammer, I’ll hammer out poverty housing. I’m taking the challenge and making a difference by donating to Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County. I challenge ___________ & __________ to join me by signing up to volunteer or donating one day’s wages (or both) within the NEXT 48 HOURS. To volunteer contact Molly at molly@habitatec.com. Donations can be made through our YouCaring campaign site or through our PayPal site.

Don’t wait, take the challenge today! Participate in the #HammerChallenge to build a better world.
