Amigo Energy partners with Ching house

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 hard-working, low-income family.
