Get and give back. Shop and help build homes.
Forget the frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and get pumped for GivingTuesday—an international campaign that supports charitable causes across the board.
In celebration of the season of giving through the GivingTuesday initiative, we’re having an amazing sale at our ReStores (Habitat’s home décor and building supply stores and social enterprise). Storewide, at all three locations (Burnaby, Vancouver and North Vancouver), everything will be marked down 35% off from December 2 (start of GivingTuesday) until end of day December 4th (from 9AM-4PM on Dec 2 and 9AM-5PM Dec 3-4). Everything. That’s furniture, hardware, flooring, lighting, lumber, kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures, doors, windows...the whole gamut!
A truly incredible sale (since we’re already discounted 50 to 80% off retail prices), especially for the designer, renovator and contractor in you! Plus 100% of all profits fund Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver's operations, and contribute to building homes locally.
Any help in spreading the word to your network would be fabulous. Come one, shop all! Tweet us! #GivingTuesdayCA
ReStore. ReThink where you shop.

Our Women Build campaign, Power Women Power Tools, is getting some buzz online and off. Thanks to CTV News Vancouver and anchor Norma Reid (who's also a Women Build ambassador!) for the piece on November 18 part of the 11:30PM edition. And a kind thank you to all the media personalities who came to support our launch event. Here are a few articles in print and online to share:
