TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Habitat for Humanity Canada's 2014 GiftBuilder Catalogue gives savvy holiday shoppers the opportunity to purchase fifty pounds of framing nails, energy efficient windows, or for those who want to see their donation go even further, two times the Dulux Lifemaster paint to benefit families across Canada whose holiday wish is a safe, decent and affordable home. Holiday gift shoppers can purchase items like these for the hard to buy for on their list, or for those who would like to make a life-changing difference this holiday season.
As an added benefit, Dulux is offering 2 to 1 matching for those who purchase Dulux paint for $62 from the GiftBuilder catalogue. In addition to helping change lives, shoppers will avoid crowded malls, can shop online with ease and receive a tax receipt for all GiftBuilder catalogue purchases.
"Dulux is working to make a colourful difference in our communities," says Martin Tustin-Fuchs, Brand Manager Dulux Paints. "Together with Habitat for Humanity Canada, we have the ability to help more families in housing need and make change."
In addition to the exclusive Dulux offer, the catalogue offers shoppers the choice of 19 gift items, ranging from $28 to donate a hammer to $5,000 for an entire roof. There is plenty of opportunity to have fun:
- Get the home renovator on your list a $28 hammer or $36 handsaw;
- For the kitchen diva, a $75 sink; and
- Builders will surely appreciate $120 steel toe boots.
"By helping families own their own home, Habitat donors are making a real difference in ending the cycle of poverty," said Mark Rodgers, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada. "The families and scores of volunteers do the building, but we rely on the generosity of our communities to help provide the tools and materials."
