During last year’s Jimmy Carter Work Project in Los Angeles, DIY was filming a special featuring all our amazing Habitat for Humanity partner families and volunteers from all over the world. The entire experience was so fulfilling and I can’t wait to see the special. Nannette Barrutia produced the special for Weller Grossman and I had the privelidge of working with she and her crew all week. Loved them!
The special is hosted by Amy Matthews & Karl Champley and will show the homes built from the ground up as well as some special homes being repaired as part of Habitat for Humanity’s “A Brush with Kindness” program.
So please set your DVRs or Tune In Live on Sunday, May 11 at 9 pm EDT – or check your local listings. Incidentally, May 11 is the kick off for this year’s, newly named, Jimmy & Rosalyn Carter Work Project in the Gulf Coast.
When was the last time you built with Habitat? Volunteer today.
I am extremely fortunate to represent Habitat for Humanity of Greater L.A. Everyone there is awesome and our partner families are so amazing. Next week is the Jimmy Carter Work Project 2007 which just happens to be here in L.A. this year! This is the Olympics of Habitat for Humanity and I am so excited to participate.
The coolest part is that all Angelinos can join us…we still have some volunteer slots for locals. If you live in L.A. you must do this. Go to www.jcwpla.org to sign up now and you can help us build 100 homes in 5 days! But that is just the beginning…this even kicks off our Building A Greater L.A. campaign in which we’ll build another 150 homes in the next 2 years.
Habitat is awesome, the families are awesome and it will do so much good for our city. Not to mention how great you’ll feel for having helped. Can you even comprehend that these families are about to become homeowners in the worst affordable housing market in the U.S?
