          Actor-Activist Brad Pitt was on the Today Show with Ann Curry. Brad Pitt was being interviewed by Ann Curry. He told her that he is here because he want to help people who have lost their homes in New Orleans,LA. After his family,helping to rebuild New Orleans,LA is his top priority. "Sure I guess so." he said. "Right now,this is the focus, and we're going to see this thing through. We are going to start with 150 homes as they strolled through the razed neighborhoods which is decorated with the forms of building components - roofs,walls,foundations - draped in dark pink canvas to attract attention to the cause.

          He putting his money where his mouth is. Brad Pitt is investing $5 million dollars of his own money for this. He is asking for people's help. He even got a website where individuals can help by adopting a low flush toilet or a solar panel as a Christmas gift to a family that needs a home. He expects to have families moving back to New Orleans by next summer. William McDonough + Partners architects are one of the groups who have partnered with Pitt in the Make it Right Foundation. A total of 14 architects are involved in the team which has developed Make it Right in close consultation with community leaders in the Lower 9th Ward.

          Brad Pitt along with Angelina Jolie even brought a house in New Orleans,LA while he was filming his latest movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". I think it is a great thing that Brad Pitt is trying to help people in New Orleans get back on their feet. How many times do you hear celebrities like Brad Pitt doing some great like this?  This is a great thing that he is doing this and I think we should help Brad Pitt and the foundation "Make it Right Foundation". help him accomplish his goal.

Brad and Angelia have both spoken out about rebuilding in New Orleans. They have said how much they love it. Hopefully with people like them and Oprah things will start moving a little faster.

This is interesting. I'd heard that he had an interest in helping the affected in LA, but I didn't know if anything else had been done.

I saw the interview with Ann Curry and Brad Pitt last week on the Today show, I have long admired his acting skills and now I admire him as a man.  Wonderful example of human kindness.

There is now an opportunity for everyone on AR to be part of this if they want. I was inspired by reading more about this project. The current issue of Architechtural Digest has a cover article about Make It Right, the Brad Pitt foundation to rebuild home in the lower Ninth Ward. These are energy efficient homes, built on the cradle to cradle principle that are being built for $150,000.... Anyone who wants to contribute can go to the www.makeitrightnola.org and click on the orange "donate" button then enter the amount they want to give and scroll down to THE HOUSE THAT ACTIVE RAIN BUILT

This is a great opportunity for us, as a group of real estate professionals to contribute to the recovery of New Orleans and the housing mess in general. Dena Stevens and I are dedicated to getting at least one house built by Active Rainers to show support for the rebuilding of New Orleans in general and the Lower Ninth Ward in particular.
