Extreme Makeover doing Extreme Green


We haven't seen it, but think this is the show where people come back home and say Oh.My.God 457 times and break into tears. They have asked us to help to find "green heroes" in need of a makeover.

"Some of the most giving families never ask for help themselves. Their home may be falling down around them, yet they put the needs of others, the environment and their community before their own. By nominating a family, you have the chance to give a family a fresh start. We love to hear about families involved in great organizations (like the Sierra Club). They've helped save the environment, now it's time to help them save their home."

Deadline for Oregon, Washington, Montana and Minnesota is April 30, other states and instructions below the fold.To be eligible, a family must own their own single family home and be able to show producers how a makeover will make a huge difference in their lives.

If you'd like to nominate a family or tell us about your own family, please send us an email to the following address:


The email should include the names and ages of each member of the household, their contact information, and a description of the top 3 things that are wrong with their home.
