Habitat for Humanity took my kitchen. There, I said it. And I couldn’t be happier.
Hopefully, the pristine, heavily lacquered maple cabinets manufactured by Germany’s Siematic fetch a good price at one of the organizations’ ReStore shops. In turn, those monies will be used for Habitat’s main job – giving former president Jimmy Carter something to do (kidding).
I have to say that of all the former presidents of my generation, Carter certainly gave back the most to his country and the world. Democrat or Republican, you have to admit his work with Habitat, which helps the less fortunate build their own homes, is nothing less than heroic. His public support is probably the only reason I’ve heard of them. And Habitat for Humanity has grown. It supports 1,400 communities in the U.S. as well as more than 70 countries globally.
