Habitat for Humanity’s “Raise your Hand Chicagoland” campaign took their mission to the streets. During the course of a long weekend, Habitat erected a house on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile to draw attention to their work in Chicagoland building homes and communities. This short documentary directed by James Forni and produced by Octane, included persistent coverage with a 24/7 live stream of the entire building online for millions of online views as well as in depth interviews with Habitat leadership, volunteers, recipients, and sponsors.
