Habitat Holiday Matching Campaign a Huge Success

To kick off our most recent Matching Campaign, Christoph Real Estate Group graciously stepped up once again and donated $5,000. Their partnership with Habitat goes well beyond their financial contributions to building homes. Since 2016, they have proudly supported Habitat for Humanity’s Matching Campaign, and our other fundraising efforts, embodying the spirit of community and making a tangible impact on the lives of families in our community.

We are so grateful to them and to all who generously provided support to us this past holiday season. The generosity of our supporters on the North Island never ceases to amaze us. The proceeds collected exceeded our expectations. In addition to $5,000.00, supporters like you donated a whopping $39,637 towards this campaign! A huge thank you to everyone who contributed. It takes much more than $10,000 to build these homes, and you came through to show your support for affordable homeownership. From our staff, sponsors, volunteers, and homeowner families: THANK YOU!

Donation Breakdown:

Donations = $39,637
Sponsor match = $5,000.00
Total raised = $44,637

A special acknowledgment goes out to the dedicated volunteers at our ReStores in Comox Valley and Campbell River, who worked at our donation tables, shared valuable information, and encouraged the community to learn more about our mission. Those who donated at the ReStore had the unique experience of autographing a 2x4 stud with a heartfelt message for a future family homeowner – a touching gesture that will be immortalized within the walls of one of our upcoming Habitat home builds.

The Power of ‘Yes” and Why Your Donations Matter

Immediate Impact: Every dollar you contribute brings us closer to saying 'Yes' to another family in need of a home. Immediate relief and long-term stability begin with your donation.

A Lasting Legacy: The homes we build are not just for one holiday season; they are for lifetimes, for families to grow, and for communities to flourish.

Help Solve the Crisis: BC is in a housing crisis. The more times we can say 'Yes', the more we can ease the burden on struggling families - one home, and one family at a time.

Meet Mavis, whose dreams came true because of your YES this holiday season:

This is our safe haven. I’m looking forward to making memories in our new home and no longer having to worry about the future." - Mavis, Habitat homeowner

A heartfelt thank you to all who made this possible! If you were unable to contribute, please consider donating today to continue supporting our mission. It’s never too late to donate.
