Diana Cosby’s Romance Reader’s Build A Habitat For Humanity Home Challenge – Guest Post

I am delighted to have fellow New Jersey Romance Writers member and international bestselling author Diana Cosby as my guest  today. Welcome, Diana!

As a Habitat For Humanity volunteer for several years now, I enjoy working alongside upcoming Habitat home owners and other volunteers to build Habitat For Humanity homes.  I also enjoy writing and reading romance novels, and have found romance readers the most amazing people.  So, I thought, why not pair the two and help a deserving family receive a home?  And, the Diana Cosby’s Romance Reader’s Build A Habitat For Humanity Home Challenge was born.

I contacted the Habitat For Humanity office in Grayson County, Texas, where I’ve had the honor of helping with several builds and spoke with Laurie Mealy, Executive Director.  She embraced the project, and was thrilled at the thought of pairing romance readers, who love stories where heroes and heroines overcome challenges to make their dreams come true, with making the dream of a home for a deserving family a reality.

How it works:

As readers and/or readers groups send contributions to Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County, the bookshelf posted on their website in the upper left will fill with every donation in $100 increments. The goal is to fund an entire home – $55,000.  Donations can be sent via PayPal using the Donate link in the menu bar on Grayson County’s Habitat For Humanity’s website, or donate funds mailing a check or money order to:

Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County
901 N. Grand Avenue
P.O. Box 2725
Sherman, TX 75091

I kicked off the challenge by donating $200.  As I write this, we’ve raised $1700.00.  I challenge romance readers and readers groups to challenge each other with donations.  I have total faith that romance readers together are an unstoppable force, and as the stories they love, they will leave a deserving family with a happy ending.

My sincere thanks to everyone for making an incredible difference in a family’s life.  For when they walk into a Habitat For Humanity house, it’s more thank mortar and wood, but a place where  dreams exist, and a place where finally, they can call home.

God bless,

Diana Cosby
