Barn Raisings

Quoted from

“Taking a page from the Amish, Extreme Home Makeover, and Habitat for Humanity, I came up with ‘Barnraising’.  What if we expanded the idea of a typical barn raising to building things like a new playground, a new roof for a tornado victim, or a school extension?  Throw in new technology that allows projects to be crowdfunded.  Add a volunteer sign up list so people can not just donate their money but their time.  Think Extreme Home Makeover, broaden it beyond homes, and add a crowdfunding/crowd volunteering element to it.  That’s what Barnraisings is all about.”
