In Honor of Jimmy Carter

I was saddened to hear that Jimmy Carter was going into hospice. Whether you agree with his politics or approved of his job as President of the United State, I think most people agree that Jimmy Carter is a good person.

His work with Habitat for Humanity has always been an inspiration to me. When I was a high school kid in New Jersey, my church group spent a weekend volunteering in Trenton. We worked in the soup kitchen, organized clothes  in the donation closet, and because we weren't old enough to build, we worked to rip out all the burned materials in a home that had been consumed by a fire. Older folks would rebuild that home after we were done.  

We left that home covered in soot and exhausted. I couldn't wait to be old enough to be on the building crew. 

A few years ago some women invited me to join Hardhats-N-Heels, their Habitat for Humanity Team. The first year I helped build a fence around a home. The second year I installed the windows in a home. There were a few years off due to Covid and the lack of building supplies. This year we are back!

Can you spare $10 to help build a family a home?

On June 9th, my Habitat for Humanity team, Handhats-N-Heels, will be building a home for and with a family in Maryland. Please support my efforts by visiting my page at https://give.classy.org/SheBuilds.

Hi Dana... I agree... whatever we might think of Jimmy Carter's presidency (those of us who were adults and lived through it), we can't deny what he's contributed to better the world.

This is a nice tribute for Jimmy Carter. He has inspired many to work for Habitat for Humanity.

It is good to see that your team is going to build a home in Maryland.

I can't wait to see where we are sent this year. I know one house is in Takoma Park. Last time we were in Silver Spring and the future owner was there helping.

Love this!  It is great to see a picture of the former president doing something he is passionate about that helps the community.  I love your photo of the team for Women Build Week.

Hello Dana - treating others with kindness and respect is an excellent way to live.  While I never voted for President Carter, his role in his post-presidency has set a standard previously unknown to me.

I was not a fan of Jimmy Carter as President...but everything he did after that certainly showed what a true patriot he is. I wish the politicians of today would learn from this.

Jimmy Carter is a GOOD man. He did so much to help others.

Thank YOU Jimmy!

Yes. I think it's better to be a good person, rather than a good politician.

It is a shame that often ones true value is not recognized until either the end or near the end.  mdm
