|Give the gift of a warm & safe home|
Who will YOUR Valentine be this year? February 14th is right around the corner, which means it's almost time to kick off our 3rd annual Hearts Rebuilding Homes Valentine's Day campaign! From February 1st through February 14th, we asked our supporters to make a difference in the lives of homeowners in need by making a donation to our organization, in honor of their loved ones.
Thanks to the generosity of our 2012 Hearts Rebuilding Homes donors, we were able to help three families in need. Last year's campaign raised about $1,000 more than the inaugural year! We hope to keep the momentum going in 2013 and make an ever bigger impact for the homeowners on our waiting list.

This year, Rebuilding Together Seattle is excited to celebrate the third year of Hearts Rebuilding Homes, starting on Friday, February 1st. Our supporters will have fourteen days to make a donation online (or by mail) to Rebuilding Together Seattle in honor of their Valentine.
After receiving confirmation of your donation, Rebuilding Together Seattle will mail a special card to your Valentine, notifying him/her of your donation. Later in the year, we'll send an email greeting to all donors and card recipients to let them know about the families we were able to help with your support.
Here are four families on our waiting list who need your support this Valentine's Day:
Jessica is a young single mother of an 8 year old and an infant living in White Center. Jessica’s family is in need of new front steps and a ramp, new bathroom flooring, and a new faucet.
Thomas and Janet are an elderly couple living in West Seattle. Thomas is in a wheelchair and they need their ramp updated to address rot, new kitchen flooring, clutter removal, yard work, and a new stove.
Yuk-Sung is an elderly widow of a veteran living in North Beacon Hill. Yuk-Sung desperately needs a new stove.
Earline is 80 years old and disabled, living in Rainier Beach. She requires grab bars in her bathroom and needs help with plumbing leaks throughout her home.
