I'm heading to India to build Habitat homes

Delta volunteers are heading to India to build Habitat homes

More than 40 employees and, for the first time six Delta customers, will partner with Habitat for Humanity and families in the village of Nagewadi, Karjat, near Mumbai, to build six homes during a weeklong trip to the region next month.
With this project, Delta’s Force for Global Good, a program that unites customers and employees who invest their personal time and money to support philanthropic efforts throughout the world, is helping take a stand against poverty housing by volunteering with Habitat in India to help families in need of safe, decent, affordable housing realize the dream of home ownership. Also, we’re committing $100,000 and the help of other community partners to build 100 more homes in the state of Maharashtra next year.

Im really excited about this trip...leaving on my birthday next week! woo-hoo!!
Of course, since I will already be there, Smita, Frank and I are taking a side trip to Kerala, India.
Here is a little teaser.....more to come:
