On Friday, October 11, I will help build a home with Team Perkins and Will, a group of 12 ultra talented, proactive ladies who care about Chicago.
Homeownership is one of the most dynamic tools a person can use to build a strong and stable future. However, it is a tool that far too many women are unjustly denied access. From the gender pay gap and its impact on credit profiles, to uneven child care responsibilities that consume time and financial resources, to higher rates of mortgage denials despite superior payment performance, the barriers keeping women from homeownership are massive.
So I'm grabbing my hammer and joining Habitat Chicago's Women Build alongside 400 other powerhouse women to knock these barriers down. Together, we will help our fellow women become homeowners with Habitat Chicago, a nonprofit committed to building a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Help me reach my fundraising goal so we can change the lives of these women and prove that there's nothing a group of committed women can't do!
Whether $5 or $50 or $500 (a girl can dream) any/every dollar is hugely appreciated.
Just know that at the $100 level I will bake you something delicious. :)
Thank you!! Ellie
