The just completed Foxbuilt home for hope

Friday, September 24, 2010 – a great day in Southcentral Pennsylvania – a great day around the world!  FoxBuilt Homes, based in Harrisburg Pennsylvania dedicated a home for hope.  I got to be with John Fox (the biggest smile in the photo below) as he presented a check for $115,000.  So what does this mean?  It means that nearly 6,000 people will have the opportunity to leave poverty behind in some of the poorest places on earth – like Haiti, Afghanistan and the Congo.

Here’s how it works – Homes for Hope, through its partner, HOPE International, makes small loans to entrerpeneurs who have businesses, but don’t have money to grow; the businesses are those like brick-making, sewing, a fish market, etc…  The loan – often as little – is paid back over 6 months.  The businesses grow and the best thing is – kids eat better, get better health care and education and begin to enjoy a life of promise which we all want for our families.

FoxBuilt Team lifts thousands out of poverty

Said John Fox in presenting the check, “we knew this would be a tough year in the building industry, but we decided it was the right thing to do and we are blessed and glad that we did.  It’s all worth it when you realize how many people will benefit as a result.  We’re in this for the  long term.”
