Former "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" host Ty Pennington is bringing both political parties together for one goal: To build a house for a deserving military veteran. The plan calls for one half of the home to be built at the Republican National Convention and the other half at the Democratic National Convention. The Craftsman Brand, (along with non-profit Rebuilding Together, as well as Heroes at Home, NextGen Home, Champion Builders and Bank of America,) have teamed up with Ty to encourage volunteers to build the home.
Last week, we checked in with Ty at the RNC in Tampa, where Republican delegates were helping build the first half of the house. In Charlotte, he updates Soledad and the "Starting Point" team on the goal of building the second half with help from Democratic delegates.
Folks at home can also help encourage state delegates to participate by signing a petition at Facebook.com/craftsman.
