Stephanie Butler: Habitat for Humanity
Since 2005, Habitat for Humanity Ireland has developed partnerships to build and refurbish properties in Dublin, providing affordable housing to families.
Having heard from a colleague about the incredible work that the charity does, in July 2011, Stephanie volunteered to go and help work on the renovation programme at two houses in Emmett Road, Inchicore.
“It was a fantastic experience, great fun and most importantly, rewarding” she said.
“We painted an entire house in one day! We held table quizzes, cake sales and flea markets to help raise funds for Emmett Road, all of which raised over €2,000. And to make it even better, the Vodafone Foundation supported us and matched our fundraising efforts!”
