The Goal: Give a Veteran a brand new home!!!
Brendan Haas, The Armed Forces Foundation (AFF) and The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are raising money to move and reassemble a solar house donated by MIT students, to the AFF. Brendan, is an awesome 9-year-old from Kingston, MA, began trading one of his toy soldiers in an effort to "trade up" to land, the home could eventually be placed. After the house has been moved and reassembled, the Armed Forces Foundation will donate the house and land to a well deserving Veteran of our Armed Forces!!!
Here is a link to the house and the solar decathlon which inspired this house to be built http://mit.edu/solardecathlon/

We understand that this is a huge undertaking, one that may whiles one time to accomplish but we are willing to give it a try. We believe in Brendan and although we were surprised he had reached his goal so quickly the last time, we have no doubt that with his determination he will be able to accomplish his new goal of trading for some land. We're thrilled to partner with the Armed Forces Foundation, which has agreed to help us check out the military service ofthe people who would like to be a recipient of the home. We will post information on how to apply for the house soon. Thanks so much to MIT and the Armed Forces Foundation for this unbelievable opportunity! Also, thanks to everyone who has supported Brendan's and, most importantly, to those who have served! -The Haas Family
