Brad Pitt has been on the news recently getting publicity for his Make it Right project in the devastated lower 9th ward in New Orlean. Pitt has assembled an all star team of green designers, architects, and builders for this project. The website, www.makeitrightnola.org, contains plenty of video and flash animation and a method for you to donate cash to "adopt" a house. A cool feature is that it even allows you to designate that you want your donation to go towards the purchase of green items such as rooftop solar panels, solar thermal, CFLs, and environmentally safe paint.
As of this post, 9 of 150 homes have been adopted ($150,000 per home). This is a great initiative so please, check out the site and donate today!
