Habitat for Humanity Intl. is an organization dedicated to providing housing to families in need around the world. To date, Habitat for Humanity Intl. and its 1,941 affiliates in 67 nations have built and sold more than 90,000 homes, including 30,000 in the U.S., to partner families at no profit with zero-interest mortgages. Since its founding in 1990, Habitat for Humanity South Bay-Long Beach has built 18 homes, housing 94 people. Through its “More Than Houses” campaign, the affiliate plans to build or rehabilitate 80 homes over the next five years.

The partnership between The WB, TEEN PEOPLE and Habitat for Humanity Intl. was first formed last year after TEEN PEOPLE spent a week in the Dominican Republic with Sarah Michelle Gellar (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) who was working with Habitat for Humanity Intl. to build homes for local families. TEEN PEOPLE profiled Gellar and her involvement with Habitat for Humanity Intl. in the October 1999 cover story.

In the May issue, TEEN PEOPLE announced an essay contest inviting readers to win the chance to meet cast members from shows on The WB and work with the celebrities as they help build a house for Habitat for Humanity Intl. Three grand-prize winners have been selected, and will participate in the Los Angeles building project. The winners will also receive Polaroid I-Zone cameras and Sticky Film enabling them to capture the day with their new camera.
