Perhaps one of the most important series we have ever created is "Project Rebuild" which has been created to help Homeless Families in need.
Did you know that the United States has the largest number of homeless women and children of any industrialized nation and that 1 in every 45 children in the US are homeless, which means that within 1 year, over 1.6 MILLION children have experienced homelessness in the US.
(The statistics below are the best estimates of the extent of homelessness, but it is important to note that they are undercounts)
• 1 out of every 45 children in the US are homeless.
o Four times as many respiratory infections.
Experiences of Violence
Educational and Developmental Issues Children experiencing homelessness are:
• Four times more likely to show delayed development.
Seeing the news stories about homeless families in our local area and a simple Google search found an alarming rate of homeless families across the U.S that need and deserve our help, so we decided to develop a series that will help as many of these homeless families as possible, while giving them a solid chance at a new life, even after our cameras have gone.
<Tagline> In a search throughout America, homeless families are selected to be taken from destitute to solvency as PROJECT REBUILD provides a surprising, life-changing experience to those in need.
Join our Hosts; a Master Carpenter and a Professional Decorator, as they visit a different US city, in each dramatic episode, to help unknowing Homeless families who have lost everything regain their lives.
This new reality docu-drama TV series gives each family a simple job helping to remodel an old house for what they think is a new Reality TV series designed to flip houses, as viewers watch the modest house be dramatically transformed by the hands of the family and crew into a beautiful home.
Unbeknownst to the family, the Reality series is NOT actually about the house as much as it is about them. Get up close and personal in each episode as our hosts and camera crew get to know the chosen family...their story, their sadness, their happiness and their hopes of once again having a better life.
Once the home has been remodeled and the job is done the family prepares to go back to their regular life. But, in another shocking twist, just as they get ready to leave they are surprisingly told that the home they have been working so hard on is actually theirs, along with the new furniture inside, new clothes and a trustee controlled bank account worth $20,000 to help them with future bills and food.
The twists continue when the surprised family learns that one of the workers they met during the remodel is actually the owner of a local business who is giving one of them a job. The family is also introduced to a local counselor to help them progress with their new life and to help keep them on the right track.
At the end of each episode our cameras fast forward and once again peek into the family’s life at home and at work to see their progress and to capture the happiness of their Rebuilt life before our hosts and camera crew pull away to our next… ...PROJECT REBUILD destination.
Project Rebuild along with H-Block and Protection Order are being developed to help people in need, not to exploit them as other shows have done in the past and not to just leave them once production has wrapped. This is a cause that should be taken more seriously in America, and it is very important to us here at Legacy.
We have chosen to create the pilot and a few episodes for Project Rebuild and help out at least four families in need. By producing the pilot and 4 other additional episodes in-house it helps us to maintain our outline of how the show was originally created, with heart and not exploitation! Once the pilot and episodes have been completed they will then go to the networks for review, if the series is not picked up by a network it will be developed into a web series and will still maintain our course of helping families in need, just with a little lower budget.
We are asking for donations to purchase additional tools needed on and off set along with a trailer that is needed, we will purchase all of our needed items at very modest prices. Having the right tools for the job along with the trailer to transport them is a very large part of Project Rebuild. It helps us behind the scenes and on camera to get the job done and get the home remodeled all while helping a needy family and providing them with the nice home they need to live a normal, healthy, productive life.
We will soon be posting an episode campaign for Project Rebuild along with our biggest help production to date... H-Block where we take an old prison and transform it into Americas largest homeless and battered women & children help center also,
keep an eye out for other Project Rebuild campaigns.
Our Campaign Goal is 15,000.00 but any contributions over the intial amount will go to help additional families on additional episodes with clothing, food and much more. Thank you for the support!
