As a continuation of our successful partnership, Rebuilding Together has partnered in 2009 with HGTV for the “Change the World. Start at Home” campaign. “Change the World. Start at Home” is HDTV’s community revitalization and environmental education campaign in partnership with Rebuilding Together, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
This year, the campaign focused on the rehabilitation of America’s historic veterans’ community homes. Rebuilding Together Philadelphia and Rebuilding Together St. Louis completed large-scale home renovations and accessibility modifications on veteran’s transitional homes in their communities, and the results are simply astounding. You can learn more about these projects at www.hgtv.com/changetheworld.
As our veteran supporters, we at Rebuilding Together wanted to let you know that the special featuring our work in Philadelphia and St. Louis will be airing this Veteran’s Day, November 11th, at 8 p.m. EST, where you can see these remarkable renovations for the first time, and a glimpse into the local efforts to help veterans in two unique neighborhoods.
We would love your support in spreading the word on this upcoming event. Please contact me if you are interested in helping us promote the event through your websites and membership. Regardless, tune in on the 11th to see our important work for veterans in action!!
Thank you for your support, and for all you do to assist veterans!!
