Nissan Canada helping Habitat For Humanity Canada give the gift of home for 
the holidays 
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Habitat for Humanity is calling on all 
Canadians to visit their local Nissan dealer over the next month, as Nissan 
Canada has pledged a donation of $20 to local Habitat for Humanity projects 
for each test drive in order to help more low-income families access 
affordable homeownership and break the cycle of poverty. 
"Nissan Canada and its employees have been great supporters of Habitat's work 
in Canada for over five years," said Stewart Hardacre, President and CEO of 
Habitat for Humanity Canada. "Their employees regularly help out on builds and 
they provide much-needed financial support to help cover hard costs such as 
land and building materials. We are extremely grateful for their support." 
As part of Nissan Canada's "Gift to You" holiday campaign, Nissan will also be 
donating an additional $5 to local Habitat affiliates for each new Facebook 
"like" they receive over the duration of the promotion, which ends December 
24. Nationwide, Habitat for Humanity and Nissan Canada hope to generate 
$550,000 in total, which will help several more low-income families realize a 
safe and decent home they can afford. 
"Nissan and our employees have been proud supporters of Habitat for Humanity 
Canada for the past five years, helping build numerous homes for Canadian 
families from coast to coast," said Judy Wheeler, Director of Marketing, 
Nissan Canada Inc. "Everyone should be home for the holidays and with the 
funds raised through this campaign, we will ensure many more Canadians have a 
home to call their own this time next year."
