Gingerbread House Challenge!
Join our festive fundraising challenge! Build hope as you build a gingerbread house and raise funds, which will help more children have a safe place to live.
Every day, Habitat for Humanity works beside families to build, renovate or repair their home in 70 countries around the world.
This Christmas- be a part of this life-changing work & raise funds so that families like Gertrude, Ruth & Naomi (below) have a decent place to call home.
Whether at home; with friends and family, with your local community group, or with colleagues at work, our challenge promises a feast of festive fundraising fun!
If baking’s not for you, head down to your local supermarket, grab a ready-made kit and just do the fun decorating bit.
Sign up to bake it, make it, decorate it & get festive fundraising with Gingerbread House Challenge.
Don’t forget to share your photos and videos on social media & encourage others to get involved! Tag us @habitat.ireland or #habitatgingerbreadbuild.
