Habitat for Humanity: Ten Thousand Villages birdhouse campaign focus on poverty cycle

Habitat for Humanity Canada and Ten Thousand Villages have teamed up on a project to break the cycle of poverty through building affordable housing in Canada and abroad.

These birdhouses are being sold at Ten Thousands Villages stores across Canada to help fund an affordable housing partnership between the store and Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity Canada and Ten Thousand Villages have teamed up on a project to break the cycle of poverty through building affordable housing in Canada and abroad.

To mark the beginning of this partnership, starting on March 14 all Ten Thousand Villages stores in Canada are selling Everybody Needs a Home birdhouses.

A donation of $10 will go to Habitat for Humanity home building projects for every birdhouse sold.

Ten Thousand Villages Canada believes men and women around the world have a simple dream—to earn an honest living, provide a home, food and education for their children, and to be gainfully employed in a job that brings dignity and joy.

By partnering with HFHC, Ten Thousand Village Canada hopes to transform the lives of partner families at home and around the world.

The Habitat birdhouse is made by a craft cooperative in India and makes a thoughtful Easter gift.

Habitat for Humanity and Ten Thousand Villages plan to hold more promotional campaigns in the future.

The Ten Thousand village store in Kelowna is located at the intersection of Harvey and Burtch.

Ten Thousand Villages Canada is a non-profit Fair Trade Organization.

Fair Trade Organizations are non-governmental organizations designed to benefit artisans, not to maximize profits.

They market products from handicraft and agricultural organizations based in low-income countries, providing consumers with products that have been fairly purchased from sustainable sources.
