Before&AfterContest supporting Habitat for Humanity

OPC & Habitat for Humanity

None of this is to pat ourselves on the back. My hope is that you will be inspired to get involved with Habitat for Humanity. You don’t have to be a construction worker or give weeks of your time or have lots of money. Every little bit matters! Find out more about volunteering or providing financial support with Habitat for Humanity.

Week 13 Winner

Last week our weekly co-host and judge was Mryra from My Blessed Life. She chose the last week’s winner to be Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof for her kitchen reveal! Like all our weekly winners, Jenna was given the option of a $50 gift card and $100 will be donated to Habitat for Humanity in her name. BUT, Jenna chose to have all $150 donated to Habitat instead!!!!
