Tori Spelling, Amber Heard and Lance Bass are just a few of the celebrities who are lifting hammers for a good cause.
The stars have partnered with Habitat for Humanity Los Angeles to launch the organization's #Hammertime social media campaign, which aims to raise funds to help build homes amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic for those in the Hollywood community who cannot afford housing.
Ian Chen, Charley Koontz, Cassie Scerbo, Tina Knowles Lawson, Holly Robinson Peete, Krystin Goodwin, Breegan Jane, Alex Rose Wiesel, Walter E. Jones, Parmalee and more have also joined the cause and will be holding up a steel hammer to spread awareness about the campaign.
For every $25 or more that is donated, people will receive a special steel hammer created by Redline Steel — an American-made, Veteran-owned and operated company founded by Army veteran Colin Wayne, who survived a rocket attack in Afghanistan eight years ago.

"Habitat L.A. is thrilled to partner with Redline Steel and Colin for this special Habitat Hammer sales promotion. As we celebrate our 30th Anniversary year during this crucial time in America, the need for affordable housing is greater than ever,” Erin Rank, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, said in a statement.
