During our class brainstorm session last week for the Habitat project, I agreed to do some stories from the Habitat employees’ perspectives.  I plan on doing one story about how the economy has affected Habitat projects – Has funding decreased?  What challenges have they had to overcome?  How did they make up for the decrease in donations? etc.   This story will be in text format.

I also would like to do an audio story about how working for Habitat has affected the employees.  How has it changed their perspective of the world?  The poor?  The wealthy? What have they learned?  How have they changed? etc.  This will be an audio story.

In order to complete these stories, I have set up interviews next week with both Marty Kooistra, Habitat’s CEO, and the Development Director, Sandi Lynch Holmes.
