Cast a Vote to Change the Life of One Saint Paul Family

by Alex Stenback on December 12, 2007


So it happens that HGTV is running a contest, called Change the World, Start a home:

Change the World. Start at Home is a new community revitalization and environmental cause effort launched by HGTV in partnership with Rebuilding Together, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Natural Resources Defense Council. The campaign focuses on revitalizing communities across the country and helping consumers make smart choices for the environment within their homes and daily lives

It also happens that Saint Paul is in the running, (the winners are chosen by an online vote-off) with three properties up for renovation, if chosen.

One of the homes is owned by Kris Nelson, who originally purchased the classic Swede Hollow Victorian with her husband Tom as a restoration project.  Those plans fell apart when her husband died of a heart attack at 35, leaving her with two young children to care for and no means to continue the project, which has fallen into disrepair.

Anyway, just go read this story, then head over to the HGTV Website and voteRight now.
