Here’s the scoop from the casting producer:
” We are in the process of finding families who are deserving and in need of a new home for our next season of Extreme Makeover Home Edition, and we want to move that bus to Richmond, Va!
We are looking for inspirational families that America can really root for. Are you able to help us reach those local heroes who need our help?
We’re looking for inspirational members of the community who, for whatever reason, need a new home. While we know that there are so many families in need all over this country, we want to focus on people that have given back in some way despite their personal hardships.
Some examples from past episodes include the Bliven family of Minot, ND who started a little league baseball program for children with special needs. And in Indiana, Shawna Farina heads up the local Relay For Life cancer walk for life in honor of her mother’s struggle with the disease and, in an ironic twist of fate, now battles breast cancer herself.
Some of our episodes have focused on people who have been inspirational within their own family. Amy Hawkins of Hendersonville, TN was left paralyzed after she threw her body over her 2 sons as a tornado ripped apart their home.
As you can see, our definition of deserving can be fairly broad.
See below for our show flyer, which details what we are looking for and how people can submit their materials to us.
All nominations should be sent to VirginiaCasting@gmail.com
To be eligible, a family must own their own single family home or at least property on which a home can be built. Plus, they must be able to show producers how a makeover will make a huge difference in their lives.
Nominations must include the names and ages of each member of the household along with a description of the major challenges within the home. Please also include contact information of the family. If possible, we would also love to see pictures of the family and their home.
The deadline for family nominations is April 19, 2010. But, the sooner we find some deserving families, the better!”
