All you have to do is answer the following question...
from your heart
If $$$$$$ were no object what
would you incorporate into a your dream home. ...OR what 5 elements would you advise Brad Pitt to incorporate in his New Orleans, Lower 9th Ward Pink Project (see details below) ....WHAT WOULD YOU SELECT ........... ........................... AND WHY?
DETAILS...background information for the IF MONEY WERE NO OBJECT CHALLENGE....
- Brad Pitt announced plans to build 150 eco-friendly homes in the Louisiana city's Lower 9th Ward earlier this week. . Watch King tour the 9th Ward » . . .
Also, earlier this week, Dena Stevens~ wrote me a note that showed me that Dena and Brad actually have more than you might have guessed in common! What is that, you may wonder...so I'll tell you ...
Pink attracts them. (I'm smiling)
But read on. You'll see what I mean.
- Brad Has a Pink Project
Brad's (totally "green" )Pink Project "represents opportunities hidden within this tragedy and focuses attention on the plight of the Lower 9th. Pink is a virtual city of Hope. A hybrid of art, architecture, cinema and media, Pink is conceived as an informational, commemorative, communication tool which raises awareness and activates individual participation to heal local wounds in need of global aid."
- Dena's Thinking Pink
- "janeAnne, " she wrote, "I was thinking about something all night, thought I'd share it will you. I'd love it if you opened up a conversation . . .If money were no object what 5 elements would you incorporate into a house. All the technology out in the world is great, but if you were NOT limited what would you use and why?"
SO...I wrote Dena back and said..."THIS sounds like the perfect Eco-All-Stars "Pink" Challenge for the Holidays... ...Let's ask allthe Active Rainers to imagine the possibilities (including any ideas we might want to tender to Brad Pitt's Pink Project !"
I continued, : By the end of the month, we can get our list together. . . Let's imagine what we would want in Pitt's (or our own) eco-friendly houses, and together send off our Pink List to Brad Pitt . I bet that he and and William McDonough (..the Green Architect) ) who Brad has hired to manage this project would enjoy hearing from the WHAT SAY YOU?"
Well, Dena was pleased, I can say for sure. She said, " janeAnne!, ask everyone to USE THE COMMENT SECTION TO TELL US 5 elements they'd would include in their eco-friendly home...we can send our combined comments on over to Brad Pitt...in a PINK envelope =) . . ."
Just type in your IF $$$ WERE NO OBJECT.... 5 elements in the comment section below.
