2010 Year-End Appeal

Tired of bad news?

Here’s some GOOD NEWS for a change!

Houses are going up in Haiti! Twelve volunteer work teams are already scheduled well into 2011.

During the Millard Fuller Legacy Build, over 100 families worldwide moved into new or rehabilitated houses. Because of this effort by thousands of donors and volunteers, close to 500 men, women and children have a decent place to live.

One of the new homeowners in Indianapolis, Sherrice Harris, addressed the volunteers who worked beside her to build her home: “All I can say is thank you. So I’ll keep saying it. Thank you!”

The Fuller Center is actively making peace, one house at a time. Much of our work is in places that are scarred by warfare—places like Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Congo. Our latest initiative is in North Korea. We’ve found that when people of diverse backgrounds come together for a common good, divisive differences become less important.

Message from Fuller Center President David Snell:

This movement is powerful. This movement is God’s love expressed tangibly through providing opportunities for everyone to live in a decent, affordable home. This movement is building partnerships, relationships and peace around the world. All gifts–even gifts as small as the widow’s mite–are important and helpful.

None of this would be possible without the support of friends like you. I invite you to be a bigger part of making GOOD NEWS happen. We need your prayers, your skills and your financial support. Thank you for your much-needed support.

Wishing you much joy during this season of giving,

David Snell
