926 Hands for Homes

My fingernails are always in a bit of a state. Between writing and horseriding, long nails are not a good idea, and so I do short nails in bold colours [yup, I started that trend]. But this Saturday marks the beginning of a great campaign, worth getting your hands dirty for!
Starting 9 May is MFM 92.6’s 2009 community project: 926 Hands for Homes.
Why 926? Because we are MFM 92.6. Duh.
We team up with Habitat for Humanity [H4H], which is a non-profit organization which, since 1976 has built over 300 000 houses! Every Saturday [9, 16, 23, 30 May] we head off to Mfuleni to go build houses for those less fortunate than we are. MFM and Intercape will provide transport as well as food, and anyone is free to volunteer. Moreover, the above poster will be cut into 9260 puzzle pieces which we will be selling at R2 a pop in the Neelsie Monday to Friday 12h30 – 14h30 to fund the building of one house, which costs R15 000.
So every Saturday I will don overalls and get down and dirty to help others out. You should, too! For more information join the Facebook group or e-mail Ruenda Odendaal at
The poster was designed by my brother, Stefan, together with his wife, Ilana. E-mail him at for design work
