Rob Lowe Lends a “Hand” to Rebuild Haiti with Valspar
Valspar Paint is leaving a print on the efforts to rebuild Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. The paint manufacturer, in collaboration with actor Rob Lowe, unveiled Valspar Hand for Habitat, an initiative to auction the handprints of celebrities and notable personalities to benefit
Habitat for Humanity’s
relief efforts in the crumbled Port-au-Prince and neighboring towns.
“I am deeply honored to partner with Valspar Paint and Habitat for Humanity for this important initiative that will help Haitian families rebuild their lives,” said Lowe, Valspar’s Hands for Habitat ambassador. “Having access to adequate shelter is a basic human right that everyone deserves. Valspar and Habitat are bringing low-income families the help they so desperately need.”
In addition to Rob Lowe, other notable personalities donating their handprints to the Valspar Hands for Habitat initiative include Andy Cohen, Angie Harmon, Ashley Greene, Calvin Klein, Cynthia Rowley, Donnie Wahlberg, Ellen DeGeneres, Ethan Hawke, James Earl Jones, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jason Sehorn, Jonathan Adler, Katie Couric, Kid Rock, Lauren Conrad, Naomi Watts, Nate Berkus, Paula Deen, Susan Sarandon, Teri Hatcher, Tori Spelling, Vanessa Williams, Zac Posen, and more.
“Valspar is proud to continue our longstanding relationship with Habitat and our commitment to making a positive impact in communities everywhere,” said Howard Heckes, senior vice president of Valspar Global Consumer. “Through the Valspar Hands for Habitat program and our work with Habitat for Humanity, we have a unique opportunity to help transform people’s lives and connect them to the power in color.”
