100 Houses, 100 Families

Wow, 100 houses, 100 families. Who would’ve thought?
It still amazes me each and every week that we are able to do what we do.
Lots of changes have happen since the Powers family in Santa Clarita 4 ½ years ago.
One of the biggest changes is the number of volunteers that come out and help us. If you are one of the many that have spent time on our builds, I can’t thank all you folks enough. We could not do what we do without you. Thank You!

The TV show you see on Sunday nights has never given justice to what happens in 7 days, 168 hrs, and 10,080 minutes. It is hard to fit it all into a 1-hour show. I wish everyone had the chance to experience just one of our weeks. It is so cool to see what we all can do when we work together. It changes your life.

The biggest thing that I have learned these last 4 1/2 years from being on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is that it’s not the disability that one may have (because we all have them), but it’s the will to work through that disability, the will to not let that disability be the reason for one not to do what one wants to do. That is courage. It makes me so proud to have been in so many of those courageous peoples presence.

As for the many men and women that I have traveled with, that I have shared laughter and tears with, I thank you. It has been a great ride. TV is a very funny business. People come and go on the production end of things and rightly so. Folks need to move on build their careers. But the foundation that this show teaches us is like no other, lessons that we will never forget. That I know.

Lets hope we can do this for another 100 families.
That’s it for now.
