TORONTO, ONTARIO - (Marketwired - June 25, 2015) - easyhome Ltd. (TSX:EH), is excited to announce the launch of a unique fundraising event for Habitat for Humanity - Headstands for Humanity. The event taking place on Saturday, June 27th, 2015 at 10:00am in Rosedale's Ramsden Park, will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people holding a headstand in one location. The Guinness World Record attempt is being organized to raise awareness and funds for Habitat for Humanity.
In order to beat the current Guinness World Record, which was set in Switzerland with 265 people, all participants will be required to hold the headstand at the same time for 15 seconds. To help document the World Record attempt, Toronto's Strong Eye Studios will be providing drones to capture aerial footage of everyone doing a headstand. In addition to being a part of this World Record attempt, the event will also feature raffle prizes and a one hour outdoor yoga practice taught by Chi Junky Yoga.
"We are delighted to partner with Habitat for Humanity for this incredible fundraising event in Toronto," says David Ingram, President and CEO of easyhome Ltd. "While our priority is to raise money for building homes in Nicaragua, we also want to have some fun in our community, promote wellness, and set a new Guinness World Record for the great city of Toronto."
easyhome's combined fundraising efforts have exceeded $25,000 to date against our goal of $50,000 to help families living below the poverty line in Nicaragua," Ingram explains. "The average cost of building a home in Nicaragua is $5,000 and if we can achieve our fundraising goal, we will be able to help build homes for 10 families in need." With the total funds raised, a team of easyhome employees will volunteer their efforts in Nicaragua this December to provide the physical support required to build the homes.
To be a part of Headstands for Humanity, participants can pre-register online for $10.00 here or for $15.00 on the day of the event, Saturday, June 27th, 2015.
All proceeds from the event will go directly to a Habitat for Humanity initiative in Nicaragua.
