Habitat for Humanity Before & After series {One Project Closer}

Every year One Project Closer hosts the coolest Before & After contest benefiting Habitat for Humanity. They are on their 5th year now!

One Project Closer and their sister site The Better Half want this year to be the best one yet so they reached out to several bloggers and asked us to get in on the fun.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit who helps and supports local communities as well as communities all over all over the world. OPC’s annual Before & After series helps raise awareness for Habitat, and support their mission to provide decent, safe and affordable places to live.

How it Works
If you’re not familiar with the series, here’s the basics: you submit pictures and a story from a home improvement project you worked (no contracted jobs) sometime over the past year.

Every week of the summer (June 20 – September 21) a winner is selected and their story is published online. Each winner gets a

$50 gift card to either Lowes, Home Depot, or Amazon

and OPC makes a

very generous donation of $100 to Habitat for Humanity

in their honor!

At the end of the Summer YOU {the readers} will vote for the best submission overall. The winner receives a bonus $150 gift card to either Lowes, Home Depot, or Amazon.

This year is different and even more AWESOME because OPC has invited 13 other bloggers to get involved, each hosting a week, picking that week’s winner, and featuring the Before and After project on their site.

Here are the bloggers involved as well as the the schedule so far:
