PAID DUES HABITAT FOR HUMANITY PROJECT 2011
Bright and early on Saturday, February 12th, Murs, Guerilla Union, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (HFH GLA) and 25 extraordinary Paid Dues fans came together for the first ever Paid Dues Habitat for Humanity Project.
Walking on to the build-site that morning, the Habitat for Humanity crew leaders were already a flutter getting everything arranged as the volunteers began to show up. There was an overwhelming sense of excitement and anticipation, and a tiny bit of anxiety from not knowing what the day would bring. For some of us, this would be the very first time on a construction site, handling a power drill, or even a hammer for that matter. But, that wasn’t important. Skilled or not, we were all prepared that morning with the will and desire to step out of our comfort zones and build a house!
Within moments, we were putting on our hard hats and grabbing our designated tools. We were split up in to various groups, each lead by the most admirable construction supervisors on the planet (many of whom also volunteer their time and expertise to Habitat for Humanity year-round). With a little bit of guidance and A LOT of patience by our crew leaders, we were measuring, sawing, drilling and hammering away.
