Look clueless, this family is NOT rich, they live in my town, I've helped on this project, and Carol's children go to school with my children, they are a very deserving family, and I couldn't be happier for them!! Get a clue, it's not all about YOU!!

True Story!!

Spokesmodels still need to keep a persona in line with the product they pitch...

I doubt he's what most of us would consider a "bad guy"...

You should be praising (and purchasing from )Sears. They provide ALL of the appliances in these homes, and a LOT of the funding to pay for all of this. Sears is the one who is really giving back.

There are a lot of people who should be thanked, Ty is one, Sears is another, the contractors and volunteers are another. There are hundreds of people to thank and im sure the family is greatful. But, Ty is the one who runs the show and sticks out the most. Thanks to all!

I know, right? I clicked on the story link and thought I'd see a house in a dumpy neighborhood, and I see like a 2 acre yard and this huge house. Crap, they should come make over my apartment.

Please don't misunderstand me when I say that I worry about a single moms ability to keep up and pay the outrageous taxes that will be placed upon her. I am so glad that she got a beautiful new home but I think it was built to the extreme. The house will place a tremendous tax burden on her and I am afraid a single mom with 4 kids to support will find this hard to manage. The house will probably be (at least to me) valued at better than a million or two. I congradulate her and wish her the best and hope this helps to heal her heartach but I also pray she will be able to pay the taxes to KEEP this beautiful new home. The heartbreak of losing it would do nothing more than add to the heartbreak she has already experienced. God bless and good luck to the entire family.
