According to the resolution's findings, Mr. Millard Fuller, as the founder of Habitat for Humanity and as a dedicated citizen, displayed extraordinary commitment, selflessness, and benevolence throughout a lifetime of philanthropy and goodwill. Mr. Fuller, despite achieving financial success, abandoned his fortune for a life of service and his commitment was most profoundly manifested in the establishment of Habitat for Humanity in Americus, Georgia, an organization whose core principle was, in Millard Fuller's own words, `To make it socially, morally, politically and religiously unacceptable to have substandard housing and homelessness'. Millard Fuller was a prolific writer, authoring 10 books. He had received more than 50 honorary degrees and in 1996 received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor.
