One of the first homes in Pitt’s Make It Right Program
So many people out there are doing good for the world, that one hesitates to give more “press time” to big stars. But in the case of Brad Pitt, it’s worth mentioning (again!) His work in Katrina-stricken Louisiana has been remarkable and effective.
“I thank God for Brad Pitt,” said Gloria Guy who moved into her new home which is part of Pitt’s “Make it Right” program that will eventually provide 150 homes in a district that was particularly targeted by Katrina. Guy’s new home is also built for flood (as much as possible!) and sits on top of 8-foot pilings.
These replacement homes cost an average $150,000 per house and are made for residents who still own their property and can pay insurance and taxes. Their monthly house payments will be based on the applicant’s income and in addition, subsidized by funds raised by Pitt’s foundation.
Hurricane Katrina’s damage has flooded over to this day. Many people have forgotten about the damage that was done, except for the people who live there. Let’s some some positive thoughts and prayers their way, as well as others who have suffered from natural disasters throughout the world.
