Can you post the video you aired on tv? My husband is there with the BGF group and I didn't see the video. My dad called me and told me he saw him on tv.

Couldn't they build a little goodness here? Look out for your own people! The people you are trying to help now will be jumping the fence into our country next week!

Fred, Please take a look at the myriad of project that BGF does right here in this community. You need to research before you comment.

That aside, the US is the consumer of an extraordinary percentage of the world's resources and we have an exceptionally bloody history in Latin America. If some of our community's professionals choose to share their talents in Nicaragua, or any other country, then I think we thank them for the heroes they are.

I agree with what you're saying and these people may be "heros" but there are many many people in our own community and state who need the help just as bad. They need to look closer to home.

I work for Building Goodness Foundation, and, in addition to our international work, we complete projects 40 weekends of the year right here in Virginia. We lend our construction skills to local nonprofits to help them better serve our community, and renovate houses alongside students at UVA.
