7.  HABITAT FOR HUMANITY – Message from Zina
Hello lovely digest readers,

I've decided to do some good deeds in the off-season. So I am participating in a fundraising program for Habitat for Humanity (HFH). HFH is a charity organization that builds homes to help hardworking, limited-income families. Later on this year, I will be building a new home for a well-deserved lucky family.

We will be hosting a series of awesome fundraising events in downtown LA, and you are invited to attend! Every dollar counts, 100% of proceeds from all events will go straight to HFH!
