    OT----> Great Opportunity

    I am helping organize a team to go to El Salvador to build a house with Habitat for Humanity. Let me know if you are interested.

    I do realize what it is like as I have been there several times. I also help build home with Habitat in Des Moines. 1 billion people in the world need a decent home.

    That's what Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is for. And do you remember that Extreme Makeover used to be a show about giving woman boobs, tummy tucks and nose jobs? Funny how it's changed.

    I would have jumped all over this if I was still in college. I just never heard of opps like this until I was responsible for holding down a job and kids n such. Excellent way to give back and to provide hurting people a chance to make better.

    I agree! I get so jealous when I see college students in El Salvador or Honduras doing projects like these!
