Nonprofit Startup Aims to Build Homes Where There Are None

Check out our new press release for Building Love! ————————– Franklin, TN (PRWEB) October 17, 2012 Innovative nonprofit, Building Love is setting out to build safe, simple homes in the areas of Central America hardest hit by poverty. With an initial goal of working in Nicaragua, the organization will partner with both the families receiving the homes, as well as other nonprofit and mission organizations to accomplish this goal. Funded by crowdsourcing, the organization hopes to meet its financial goal of $15,000 to get Building Love off the ground and building homes as soon as possible. Founded by Jason Bradford and Matt Tyler, Building Love is reaching across the world to provide shelter to families in need. Bradford was moved to do something following a trip to Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the world. After witnessing the living conditions of the people he visited there, he knew he had to act. “While in Nicaragua we met families living in homes as small as 15′ x 20′. Sometimes there would be 10 or more people sharing one house,” Bradford said. “We were particularly moved by a young expectant mother named Haley and her family, who asked us to help her complete her house, which would measure 15’x15’ upon completion. During that trip, we helped give Haley a house for her husband and two children, plus the one on the way. We then knew we could do more, and the idea for Building Love began to take shape.” “After analyzing how we could help provide additional housing to some of these people, we determined the cost of materials to finish the homes...

Blogging. It’s so 2009.

My blog took a hit a few years back.  It was once an outlet for my interests, passions and just life-thoughts in general.  Now, I blog once every few months.  It’s not that I have nothing to say it’s that I’ve adapted to 140 characters or less when I have something to say.  Instead of trying to write short novels with deep thoughts to people who may or may not be ‘searching’ for it, I’ve just connected with like minds on Twitter and Facebook. So, I’m not really saying goodbye to the blog but I’m pretty sure a new format/layout/design that incorporates my ‘shorter’ thoughts is coming.  I have no idea what that means but I’m thinking thru...

Treadmill Desk : Awesome!

A while back a friend of mine told me about his ‘treadmill’ desk…  ridiculous I thought, but an amazing idea!  I didn’t have a treadmill until 2 days ago.  The first thing I did was get it setup and the next day I began measuring to build my treadmill desk.  My smart wife was like-  grab your Goofboard (an amazing board to work on your balance- closest thing to surfing in TN!) and just put it up there-  use your lap desk and get working! So it was that simple.  My first day working I walked 5.5 miles over the course of the day.  As a matter of fact I’m typing this while walking. A couple of notes.  It’s not hard.  I put it on about 2mph to get started.  If I have a skype call or just get a little sweaty I drop it down to 1mph.  Typing is surprisingly easy too-  not too many mistakes yet. If you have some cash to blow and enough space you can get a really nice Treadmill Desk.  I don’t have the room! Here’s hoping to kick the 4-Hour Body into...
