ORANGE YOU GLAD FOR HABITAT?!?

Donate 4 Deshaun

What a game! Clemson’s first National Championship since 1981, and their first victory over Alabama since 1905. Even if you’re not a Tiger fan, you have to be proud of Deshaun Watson, the junior Clemson quarterback who led his team to victory.

Deshaun’s name is added to a list of people who come from humble beginnings to accomplish incredible things. He spent his childhood in a Habitat home outside of Atlanta. Watson’s mother, Deann, raised four kids on her own, the early years spent huddled in a cramped apartment. One day Deshaun brought home a note from Habitat for Humanity. Deann put in 300 hours helping build new houses before they could move in.

Deshaun was 11 years old when he moved into his new Habitat home just before Thanksgiving 2006. He recalls, “I felt grown having my own room. Just having my own bed, not really being squished, not really worrying about someone sneaking up on me, it was a great moment, a special moment.”

We hope you’ll donate to Habitat TODAY to help others like Deshaun have a chance at doing something great! Consider making a tribute gift and we will send a card to Deshaun’s family.
