Habitat for Humanity ADMIN October 1, 2009
Photo by photo, Habitat advocates created this photo mosaic that has already been sent to the White House. More than 1,500 photo submissions were received from throughout the country. In honor of WHD, Habitat advocates reminded President Obama that whether the issue is health or education: it all starts at home. Now it is time to deliver a strong message to Congress: make housing a priority on WHD! Go to:

Group Description

This is the official Flickr group for Habitat's 2009 World Habitat Day photo petition.

When it comes to a family’s well-being, it all starts at home.
We know that a simple, decent home is the foundation on which a family can build their lives. People who live in decent shelter feel safer and healthier, and their children are more likely to advance in education.

Add your picture to Habitat’s online photo petition.
Remind President Obama that “it all starts at home.” Take a photo of yourself, your friends or your family holding a sign that says “It all starts at home.” Add your picture to Habitat’s photo petition.

--Create a sign that says “It all starts at home.” Get creative!
