BUILD-A-THON 2019

About This Campaign

What is Build-A-Thon?
Build-a-Thon is a unique experience: it is an opportunity to raise money for charity while gaining valuable building experience. It is an easy way to ease yourself into learning about the basics of Habitat for Humanity's main goal: building houses for those who cannot afford their own. Through BAT, we bring the experience of a faraway build to the Livingston lawn!

It is an awesome and one-of-a-kind 24-hour on campus competitive fundraising event, in which teams of 4-6 students use various building materials to build a shelter to sleep in overnight and to raise awareness about inadequate housing conditions.

All building materials and money go towards helping Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plainfield & Middlesex County build homes for families in need.

What's there for me?
BAT is centered around friendly team competition, often a combination of old and new friends from Habitat and other clubs!

We will have
1. Prizes for the “Best Livable Shelter” & the “Most Creative Shelter”
2. Free Dinner & Breakfast
3. Free Access to Rutgers Zone
4. Night Activities
a. Bonfire Pit
b. Cooking Smores
c. Co-sponsored Club Activities

When and where is this event?
When: October 12th, 2019 - 12:00 PM to October 13th, 2019 - 12:00 PM
Where: Livingston Lawn, Piscataway, NJ 08854

How do I participate?
In order to gain building materials and other supplies, each team fundraises by raising money from family, habitat sponsored bake sales and canning.

Other fun activities, such as the Rutgers Zone, as well as food and drink will also be included the day of the event! The more your team fundraises, the more materials and supplies you receive to build even better and crazier shelters!
