(PRWEB) August 11, 2005
(PRWEB) August 11, 2005 Â Morgan James Publishing, LLC is developing, promoting, marketing and planning an ongoing project Code Named ÂHabitat for Humanity Peninsula Building Partner."
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization founded on Christian principles, and is dedicated to the exercise of faith in action by building and selling safe, decent, affordable houses and communities in partnership with low-income families.
Morgan James Publishing's founder, David L. Hancock, recognizes that millions of Americans face a housing crisis. In fact, 5.1 million American families have "worst-case" housing needs, forced to pay more than half their income for housing, endure overcrowded conditions and/or live in houses with severe physical deficiencies. While the number of families in poverty is growing, the number of affordable rental units is shrinking, and most families who qualify for government housing assistance aren't receiving any aid.
Habitat for Humanity is changing lives. Working in partnership with low-income families to build decent homes they can afford to buy, Habitat helps to break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness. By the end of 2005, more than 1 million people worldwide will live in decent, affordable Habitat for Humanity houses.
In this unique program, Morgan James Publishing is committing to the following and is challenging others to do similarly:
1. Financial support Â Morgan James Publishing is donating a percentage of all book sales on a monthly basis from our Global (US/UK/CA) efforts under the Habitat for Humanity Peninsula Building Partner Program for the life of each book.
2. Public awareness Â Morgan James Publishing is raising awareness by promoting Habitat for Humanity with every book we release, both inside and outside (with authors consent of course). Creating press opportunities to promote Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and prominently on our Morgan James Publishing, LLC website(s), literature, radio spots, seminars, etc.
3. Mobilizing volunteers Â Morgan James Publishing rolls up our sleeves and does whatever it takes to encourage and mobilize globally volunteers with an emphasis on Habitat for Humanity Peninsula, including getting our own hands dirty!
You can make a difference one book at a time by visiting our bookstore at http://www.morganjamespublishing.net as a percentage of every book sale is donated to Habitat for Humanity.

A 1,200-square-foot Habitat House Costs $60,000 to build, which breaks down to $50.00 per square foot. Therefore, the cost of one S.H.A.R.E. (Share Habitat's Affordable Re-housing Efforts) or one square foot is $50.00 These S.H.A.R.E. certificates make great holiday, graduation and birthday gifts that can be personalized with the recipient's name. The personalized certificate is suitable for framing and will state the number of shares purchased and the amount of each share, as well as the recipient's name. The home that you participate in ÂbuildingÂ will last for many years and will continue to grow in value.
