Habitat for Humanity

Unified Promise- I have talked about Because I Said I Would before the amazing Non-profit Matt and I have joined which is based on Promises Kept. Our local Denver chapter participates in monthly Unified Promises which is our Volunteer day! For January we promised to Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and we did!
 Saturday Matt and I along with some other chapter members volunteered from 9-4 building new homes for Habitat! I was on the hammer in nails crew and I was OH SO Sore Sunday morning!
 What is so great is that every member who signed up... showed up! And we all worked our butts off but at the end of the day we were able to really see how much our efforts helped!
 There were 2 other groups volunteering with us today and we all worked on a set of 4 ROW Homes each at different stages of completion!
 Matt's framing crew got an entire 2nd floor framed out that day and the Habitat crew was so impressed... as was I!
Our February Unified Promise is a Blood Drive and yes, I will attend to help but will not actually participate because I don't feel like passing out in front of everyone!

Hi! I'm in the Denver area and think I would love something like this... I just took a peek at the website and joined for more info.

Is there a religious aspect to it at all? I don't mind religion, but I'm not religious and the last few volunteer groups that I've found ended up being much more religious than I was comfortable with.

Also, how comfortable should I be going solo? :)
