How many people does it take to makeover a house from top to bottom in a week? A lot. We got to see it first-hand when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to Springfield, Massachusetts, to make dreams come true for the Walker family. As part of the local public relations effort created and executed by John Garvey and his team at GCAI, Inc., we produced videos that helped promote the event and recruit volunteers. We also were on site for the door-knocking and other events throughout the week.
The support from the community was awesome. From the more than 6,000 Facebook fans, to the hundreds of volunteers and skilled laborers, the house got built and lives were changed. We’re glad we got to play a small part in it. Here are a few videos and photos from our time that week.
