Legacy of Lights

Legacy of Lights

It's that time of year again! That's right, Christmas will be here before we know it, and Houston County Habitat for Humanity and Chick-fil-A are proud to announce our 7th annual Legacy of Lights Nov 28 thru Dec 31st. This year, when you leave a gift in the donation houses located at the Chick-fil-A registers and drive-thru --- you will help spread Christmas joy to the entire community and give one of the greatest gifts a family could ever receive - a safe, affordable home.

There is nothing more delightful than seeing a child's face glow with excitement as they see a giant Christmas tree and thousands of Christmas lights light up the night sky to announce the beginning of the Christmas season. Except, perhaps, seeing that child's face light up when they see their very own clean, spacious bedroom in her family's brand new house for the very first time.

We invite you to join us in sharing this season of joy and shining a light of hope in our community. Together, we can light the community with Christmas cheer and keep joy burning bright year round by lighting the porches, rooms, homes, and streets of Habitat partner families in our community.

 

Please consider becoming a sustaining partner by making a tax-deductible gift today.

Benefits of Being Generous:

From good health, to increased satisfaction, to stronger marriages and longer lifespan, the act of giving has many benefits. Below are a few benefits of being generous:

  • When you give to another person, there's a physiological response. Your brain's pleasure and reward centers light up as if you were the recipient of the good deed - not the giver.
  • Generosity is contagious. In fact, a single act of kindness can inspire several more acts of generosity.
  • Generosity is one of the key factors for a happy marriage, according to a 2011 report from the National Marriage Project.
  • Research shows that those who provided practical help to friends, relatives, or neighbors, or gave emotional support to their spouses, had a lower risk of dying over a five-year period than those who didn't.
  • Doing volunteer work is associated with high levels of overall life satisfaction.
  • In 120 out of 136 countries, people who donated to charity in the past month reported greater satisfaction with life. (This is true for poor and rich countries alike.) Across the 136 countries studied, donating to charity had a similar impact on happiness levels as doubling household income!
