Amigo Energy, one of the fastest growing
retail electricity providers, announced its partnership with
Dynamo Charities, the charitable arm of The Houston Dynamo, to help raise money
for The House That Ching Built.

Following a visit to a Houston Habitat for Humanity build
site, Houston Dynamo forward Brian Ching connected with the organization’s
mission of helping families to move from substandard housing by building
simple, decent homes. In response, Ching committed to fundraising $75,000 to
build a Houston Habitat home.

In support of The House that Ching Built, Amigo Energy will
donate $1 every time a fan joins the mailing list on Amigo Free Kick
is the ultimate opportunity for Dynamo fans to win exclusive soccer experiences
for the 2010 season, including tickets and flights to away games, meetings with
players, and a chance at $100,000.

“We are proud to support Brian Ching’s efforts to raise
awareness for Houston Habitat for Humanity,” said GP
Manalac, CEO of Amigo Energy. “Amigo is committed to helping Brian Ching reach his
goal of helping one deserving Houston family.”

“The partnership
between our organization and Habitat For Humanity is the true testament to a
community coming together to make a difference," Dynamo Charities Director Lori Stutt said. "The vision of one Dynamo player, Brian Ching, added to the
support of two non-profit organizations, six corporations, and hundreds of volunteers
and donors will result in the first Dynamized Habitat For Humanity House. We are honored to ba a part of the project and look forward to
building a neighborhood of dreams!”

Construction on The House that Ching Built is slated to
begin in October 2010. As with all Houston Habitat homes, The House that Ching
Built will be purchased at-cost and with a zero-percent interest mortgage by a
