Nissan and Habitat for Humanity Campaign for Affordable Housing*

Obtaining access to affordable housing is a large problem for many U.S. families. So Nissan and Habitat for Humanity are doing something about it with the #HomeIsTheKey social media campaign. It’s as simple as sharing a hashtag. Will you help us?

What is the #HomeIsTheKey Social Media Campaign?

The Nissan Motor Co. will donate $5 for every time #HomeIsTheKey is shared on social media, up to $250,000.
Please share #HomeIsTheKey on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Some Stats on The Affordable Housing Crisis

  • Families who put over 30% of their income toward housing are considered cost burdened.
  • Families who meet the above description may have difficulty affording necessities such as food, clothing, transportation and medical care.
  • An estimated 12 million renters/homeowner households now pay more than 50% of their annual incomes for housing.
  • A family with one full-time worker earning minimum wage can’t afford the local fair-market rent for a two-bedroom apartment anywhere in the United States.
  • The problem of affordable housing access has become so great in Seattle that companies like Microsoft have vowed to get involved in a solution.
