Home for Christmas

This holiday season, HabiJax is running a new peer-to-peer fundraising competition called The HabiJax Home for Christmas Challenge. The idea is to hold a competition that will raise enough money to build a house for a family by Christmas of next year. Those wishing to participate can sign up with a team.
