Hi, this is Luciana, host of this public affairs show. Next Saturday I’ll be doing one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my life. 

It all started last year when we invited the Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity to this show. For that occasion I learned that they do a lot for the community and they do it in very cool ways… 

For example, when your birthday comes, you can raise money and have all your friends join you in a birthday build, where you all help build a house… 

In September, they hold the Habitat Challenge, in which you raise money to rappel from the Hotel Murano in Tacoma… And work places can raise money to toss their bosses from the top of the building! (not literally, of course). 

Well, what I’m doing next weekend is participate in a Women Build. I’ll be joining a group of women and we’ll be helping build a Habitat for Humanity house! 

I’ll be taking part in the one on May 13th, and then they have more in June, July and August. 

To talk about the Women Builds, and other cool ways you can help the Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity, we recently invited Elliot Stockstad, Director of Development for Habitat for Humanity Tacoma/Pierce County, and Tracey Sorenson, Community Engagement Manager.
