$10K donation in support of volunteer Rick Damato, Editorial Director of BNP Media’s Roofing Contractor Magazine
Troy, Michigan-based BNP Media is supporting Rick Damato, Editorial Director of BNP Media’s Roofing Contractor Magazine, who will volunteer with Habitat for Humanity’s 2017 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.
During July 9-14, 2017, Habitat for Humanity’s 34th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project will take place in cities across Canada with a goal of building 150 homes in conjunction with Canada’s 150th anniversary. Habitat for Humanity Edmonton will build 75 homes in Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan. Habitat for Humanity Manitoba will build 25 homes in Winnipeg. While President and Mrs. Carter will focus their efforts in Edmonton, Alberta, and Winnipeg, Manitoba, almost 50 communities across Canada will be participating.
Since 1984, President and Mrs. Carter have traveled around the world with Habitat to build and improve homes. Their time and effort helps to raise awareness of the critical need for affordable home ownership around the world. Inspiring millions over the last three decades, President and Mrs. Carter have worked alongside nearly 100,000 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate and repair more than 4,000 homes.

“I’m thrilled that BNP Media is once again generously supporting my work with Habitat for Humanity. My wife, Micki, and I will be spending a week in Edmonton. I believe every person on the planet deserves a decent, affordable place to live. Habitat forms partnerships that make this possible for many hard-working families,” Damato says.
In addition to supporting Habitat’s Carter Work Project this year in Edmonton, Damato has worked on 13 different Carter Projects in the United States and several foreign countries, including South Korea, South Africa and Haiti.
“We’re proud to be once again sponsoring Rick, who has contributed so much over the years to Habitat for Humanity and our publication. Rick exemplifies the best qualities of an industry that understands and respects the core meaning of “shelter,” say BNP Media co-CEOs Harper, Mitchell and Taggart Henderson.
About Habitat for Humanity: Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in more than 1,300 communities throughout the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org
