To the Editor,
This is Joshua Morrison, 15 year-old ambassador of the Habitat for Humanity Durham's Pennies4Homes Campaign.
Our goal is to raise $100 000 to build a HOME for a low income family in the Durham Region. We now have over $65 000!
The "exoskeleton" of my campaign is trying to raise $100 000. The "guts" of it is showing kids that they can make a difference, and that they are a vital part of the world. They are the upcoming generation and are capable of thinking past the problem and seeing a solution. This is really a community project!
Last Saturday I was in the Santa Claus Parade collecting donations, so I'd like to thank you all for helping us raise $190.15 that night! I really appreciate it! I am very happy to see people in Port Perry jumping on board. If you got one of my info slips, please spread the word! Please spread the word either way!
You can reach me, at 905-852-4204 or on Facebook. You can donate at any TD bank branch, account #5240588-3184, or on-line at www.canadahelps.org/dn/24901 (specify Josh's Penny House).
