So, no wonder Extreme Makeover Home Edition has been on for 9 seasons it is a shining example of the good in the human spirit. Our government has failed us in not providing enough giving back to the hard working citizens and military. After World War II the returning military were given Levitt Housing at affordable prices . They got benefits that only the military received because they served this country. Now many are homeless or hopelessly multiply handicapped with no assistance from the government. This home improvement helps military people in need all the time.
Then there are the advertisers of the products used to make the homes. They always show the name of the manufacturer of the good or service in a subtle way by simply flashing the product name during the reveal of the new house. No one is annoyed, you feel almost relieved that now you know where to say get those kitchen cabinets they just installed for a needy family.
It is truly an uplifting show to all. The way we should feel after listening to our elected officials and our clergy that has failed us with their failings and greed. They do things that no one has ever done especially on television. They have built homes for over 200 families at no cost to the families accompanied with cars and college educations for their children and mortgages paid for even thousands of dollars in maintenance funds for the chosen families. It is amazing how through fund raising in a fun way with a celebrities help they also in one week raise thousands of dollars.
They have made a difference and Ty Pennington the host admits that there are not too many jobs out there that only gives you that feel good feeling. He leaves his mark inside and outside of people. Good marks. The season finale was the most dramatic yet where he built 7 homes in 7 days. He went to Joplin, Missouri that suffered from a tornado that struck on May 22. Over 8,000 homes were lost or destroyed. 162 people lost their lives. The show also rebuilt the town park and took 7 families to Disney vacations that included a Disney wedding. Who does that?
Right now the Republican party is having their big candidate of choice party. Millions will be spent on lavish corporate sponsored parties even the Commodores were hired to perform at a political bash. Meanwhile, there is a terrible storm ruining New Orleans right now. Thankfully, there are responsible people like the people on this show that don’t judge people negatively, don’t waste money on stupid parties don’t ignore people that have suffered . Support shows like this not harmful judging shows and not political parties or people that exploit people.
