IN A SINGLE DEFINING MOMENT, Millard and Linda Fuller decided to leave behind a lifestyle that most people spend a lifetime chasing. Selling their company, giving away their riches, and divesting themselves of their material possessions, they set out to renew their relationship, re-evaluate their decisions, and find a higher purpose for their chosen path in life.
Millard and Linda devoted themselves to help the poor by creating Habitat for Humanity, a worldwide movement. With faith, devotion, a relentless work ethic, and extraordinary charisma, the Fullers reinvented philanthropy by inspiring others to donate time, money, material, and labor to build homes alongside low income families. Before his passing, their pioneering idea and crusading determination led to the construction of homes for more than 1,000,000 people in over 100 countries.
Although Millardʼs legacy lives on in the exponential growth of both organizations, this story of his remarkable mission will lend renewed passion to this generation, and to generations to come, at a time in our history when it is so desperately needed.
