The partnership between Whirlpool Europe and Habitat for Humanity in Europe, with the support of the WTA Tour, began this year. It follows a long-established relationship between the Whirlpool Corporation and Habitat for Humanity on a global level, which has resulted in more than $25 million in service and support donations since 1999.

Whirlpool Europe, in the first year alone, will donate 600 Whirlpool brand home appliances for the construction program across Europe. The homes, which will be sold to people in need at no profit, through no-interest loans, will each include Whirlpool appliances. You can learn more about Habitat for Humanity at www.habitateurope.org.

I like the girls.. think they're talented but.. where would you hang this? Your child's playroom? I fear even a child has some sense of appreciation for aesthetics. :o:lol:

I guess Momo asked the other players to do this since she is the "representative" for Habitat for Humanity and Whirlpool. Awwww
