Time To Help Ty?

It’s true – Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is coming to Toledo! The excitement begins on Sunday, September 7, 2008, when Ty Pennington and his team of designers will lead the build in a remarkable 106 hours over seven days.

Five families living in the Greater Toledo area are currently in the running for this honor and the chosen family will be announced on Sunday, September 7. Once chosen, the family will travel to a dream vacation destination for a week of rest and relaxation. Meanwhile, back in Toledo, over 3,000 sub-contractors, skilled trades, and volunteers will be performing a labor of love to make this home happen.

And THAT'S where you come in! Wouldn't it be cool if a bunch of Toledo First folks in Haven of Hope T-Shirts were part of that volunteer army fixing that house? We could be! Click the pic to register!!! The family will return to Toledo on Sunday, September 14 for the Big Reveal. Friends and family will be there to welcome them home and to help Ty Pennington “MOVE THAT BUS!”

It is always amazing to me the impact that show has on the viewer week after week. I can only imagine what it must be like to actually participate in the building of the house and being their live to see the reaction on the family!

The show that aired Thanksgiving 2007--I think it was the 100th Anniversary show--was filmed in Minnesota. A group from one of the area Adventist churches participated. A friend who was there said it was hard work, but absolutely an amazing feeling to be a part of the makeover team....

What a fantastic opportunity for Toledo 1st to get involved! This show has made a tremendous impact on my family, it is our one TV show we watch weekly for our "Family Night" as the value of seeing the struggle of others and how strangers are willing to help them is a good message for all of us, but especially for our kids who don't regularly come in contact with anyone who is "in need". Wish we were there to be a part of it!
