The walls are raised!

We had a glorious day for the first day of the 2007 Austin Pride Build. A special thanks to all of the 18 volunteers who came, despite the wonderful distraction of the ACL festival, to put up the walls and raise the roof trusses on Marta's future home! This was a huge first day, and an exciting reality for those who have worked to make the Pride Build a possibility from the start. From that very seed Bettie Naylor planted over 8 months ago ~ 'hey guys, what if we...' ~ to almost $45,000 raised of our $60,000 goal, it is a joy to see our community unite to give back to the city that has welcomed so many of us with open arms. We hope you'll help us make our goal - Click Here to make a secure online donation.

More to come shortly...if you'd like to see more pictures of the day's work, click here to view the photo page on the Austin Habitat for Humanity site.
