All proceeds from the sale of “Our House” on iTunes through January 2012 will help Habitat’s rebuilding efforts in Haiti.
“We have to share our good fortunes with those who don’t have any,” said Nash of his support for Habitat’s work in Haiti. “We need to share the love.”
Nash is a two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member the British pop group The Hollies and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
“We are so grateful to Graham and very appreciative of his generous offer to help families devastated by the January 2010 earthquake,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “The need in Haiti is great, and each purchase of this song will aid Habitat’s efforts to help families rebuild their lives.”
Not long after an earthquake struck Haiti in January 2010, Habitat set a five-year goal of serving 50,000 families through 2015. To date, Habitat’s earthquake recovery program, including emergency shelter kits, structural damage assessments, repairs and rehabs, and transitional and upgradable shelters, has benefited more than 28,000 families or approximately 140,000 individuals.
Five hundred volunteers – including Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood – traveled to Haiti Nov. 5 – 12, to build 100 houses in Leogane during Habitat’s 28th annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. An additional 100 houses will be built in the same community in 2012.
