Paying It Forward- Volunteering for Extreme Home Makeover. The streets where I live have been buzzing for a little over a month now as ABC's reality show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is coming to our area. We did not know exactly what family was going to be helped but this morning, as a matter of fact, the show suprised the deserving family and work is probably in full force by now. I think what the show does for families around our country is inspiring so last week when I received an email saying that they needed volunteers to help with the project I was quick to jump on board.
I have volunteered to work three shifts this week with the project. I could be doing anything from gardening, to painting, to working the tent where they hand out water and snacks to the workers. Wherever they see fit for me, I'll be there to lend a hand. Volunteering my time is the least I can do for this family who has obviously been through hardships in their lives in order to be chosen for this dream home.
My company, Coldwell Banker Lake Oconee Realty, was actually offered the opportunity to be a "Platinum" Partner for this weeks event so not only will I be volunteering but basically every Realtor we have in our office will be there at one time or another to help. What an incredible opportunity we've been presented with to help change a life!
