January 4, 2005

The Greater Toronto Home Builders’ Association and the Urban Development Institute/Ontario have launched a fundraising drive to assist those affected by the natural disaster in Southeast Asia. Funds are being targeted to the Canadian Red Cross.

Aid Logo$75,000 raised in two hours
Thanks to the initiative of Eddie Weisz at Paradise Homes, we are pleased to announce that the first $75,000 was pledged before we could even make the announcement. Thanks very much to Century Grove Homes, Conservatory Group, Diamante/Millwick, GTHBA, Heathwood Homes, Paradise Homes, Tribute Homes and Yorkwood Homes for their initial sizeable donations of $10,000.

ACT NOW!

We are calling on all members of both organizations to join in the cause, if you have not already done so. Whether you are a builder, developer, renovator or associate member of either association, we have all enjoyed several prosperous years and if there was ever a time to give something back, it must be now.

Please make cheques payable to the Canadian Red Cross/Southeast Asia appeal and forward them ASAP to the attention of either Stephen Dupuis at GTHBA or Neil Rodgers at UDI. Please let Stephen, sdupuis@gthba.ca, or Neil, nrodgers@udiontario.com, know by e-mail of the amount of your pledge, so we can answer media enquiries with the most up-to-date information.

Thank You to All Participating Donors!

A total of $175,535 has been donated to date.
