The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is a reality television series that helps those that have been struck with life changing events, either a family member being devastated with life-threatening illness, or a natural disaster that has left their previous home uninhabitable. This group gathers supplies and builds a new home within seven days while sending the family on a vacation to keep their worries at rest. The materials are often donated from local companies in order to help.
Habitat for Humanity is an organization that helps build homes for the homeless as they believe that every person needs a place to live. They also build and repair houses all over the world using materials that are donated, as well as volunteer labor and other donations. At this point the person that the house is being built for will purchase the home for no-profit, no-interest mortgage loans.
