Habitat For Humanity (Building on the Dream)

I participated in the New York City Habitat For Humanity's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blitz Build in Harlem today. The theme was Building on the Dream - Housing for All

I spent the better part of the day installing metal studs as we renovated an apartment building in Harlem on 134th Street. The experience gave me the opportunity to help others and to learn a new skill (I didn't even know there was such a thing as metal studs before today!).

To volunteer with Habitat, contact their website at The reward is well worth the effort.
