Change the World. Start at Home is a new community revitalization and environmental cause effort launched by HGTV in partnership with Rebuilding Together, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Natural Resources Defense Council. The campaign focuses on revitalizing communities across the country and helping consumers make smart choices for the environment within their homes and daily lives.
Starting November 8, HGTV and its partners are inviting people across the country to help communities in need become thriving and abundant once again. By visiting HGTV’s Change the World, you can vote on communities and projects you feel are most deserving of a makeover. One project in each community will focus on environmentally-friendly improvements while another will focus on a historic place that helps preserve the fabric of the community.
On January 1, 2008, HGTV will announce four winners during its Rose Parade coverage, based on the highest number of votes. These winners will join New Orleans, LA, still recovering from the devastation of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, as beneficiaries of the first annual Change the World week. Beginning April 28, 2008, the projects in each of the winning markets will be completed through the help of volunteers and HGTV partners.
For those markets not selected by the public, HGTV will contribute funding to help support ongoing work in each community and will provide opportunities for local volunteers to get involved with the goal of project completion.
