Pictures from the set of Extreme Makeover-Madison, Georgia

Pictures from the set of Extreme Makeover-Madison, Georgia. Yesterday marked Day 1 of the Extreme Makeover for a deserving Northeast Georgia family. Ty Pennington, along with the rest of the Extreme Makeover crew, surprised Anaiah Rucker who was credited this past March with saving her younger sister's life. Anaiah pushed her little sister out of the way of an oncoming bus and in the process sustained many injuries of her own. She wound up losing one of her legs as a result of the accident and now has a prosthetic. The dream team is here to build the family a new home that will be customized for Anaiah to hopefully help make her life a bit simpler. Thousands of local people have volunteered to help be a part of the event.

Coldwell Banker Lake Oconee has the pleasure of being a Platinum Sponsor so yesterday myself and many of my fellow CBLO co-workers showed up to lend a hand. Below are some pics from the day. More to come throughout the week!

Sheila- they asked for volunteers in the community so I signed up there and then my company became a partner so I took on a few shifts with that as well. It's going to be an incredible experience! Yesterday was HOT but so much fun!

Joan- I'm sure she is! Right now she's in Disney World with her family though so I wonder if she's thinking about her new home much?
