World Habitat Day
October 5 is 2009 World Habitat Day, which aims to remind everyone how critical the need is for people to have a safe, decent place to call home. Habitat for Humanity and many other organizations support this global observance to declare that the lack of decent, affordable housing is unacceptable. The current global recession makes this crisis all the more relevant.
According to the United Nations, which has designated the first Monday each October as World Habitat Day, more than 100 million people in the world today are homeless. So what can we each do for World Habitat Day? “Advocate – Educate – Donate.”
