Hello everybody! It seems everyone is just waiting for the last minute to give their donations, but I must tell you that we are going to Hadley next Sunday and ideally we would purchase all our materials next Saturday! So tic, tac, time is really ticking and we cannot do this project without your help! A bunch of $10 donations will make a huge difference, so help us make this happening! I have approached a friend on HomeDepot to see if they might be able to help us, but even if they agreed to help us we need your help so we can make this community project a huge success! We will be live streaming this event for you to see how your contributions were used! Please post this link onto your facebooks accounts! Many thanks! Gaia

More Info

We organized a hand on training on how to properly insulate walls using a technique called Dense Pack insulation with cellulose.  Instead of using props to teach this class, which would eventually ended up in the garbage, we found this amazing community church in desperate need of some energy efficient upgrades. So we are currently working with this community to have our workshop, while promoting energy efficiency to their local community leaving behind a well insulated building.

The problem is that they also have some other items they could upgrade, like a new fridge, so that is why we decided to ask everyone for help so we could provide this extra expenses that are very necessary to this community.

The fridge constantly in use because in this rural community, the church is the heart of their meetings, get together and day care center. 

The workshop will be held on February 12th and 15th and it will be live stream using Facebook by going to:

Help us make a difference, one building, one community at a time!
