I have read the Facbook and Pettition.com groups that want to have ABC's Extreme Makeover build a new home for the Wielinski family. Please consider the argument made against having a TV show come in and
use this tragedy to advertise Sears Brand dishwashers and Black and
I consider this show to be one big advertisement that pulls on heart
strings to sell products.
There are many websites that give examples of problems that winners had
once the "Makeover Bus" drove out of town.
Since the homes
are built so fast, the owners run into headaches when it comes to
permits and other housing regulations. If you have ever moved into a
new home you will know that it's unlikely a family slept in that house
the night the "bus" drove away.
I understand that we all live in the city of good neighbors and we
want to help. There has to be a better way than letting a TV station
and it's sponsors use this tragedy to their advantage. I'm no expert
on the FAA but I would think that there are funds and insurance accounts set aside for these types of situations.
Agree or disagree but please think before you support ABC using tragedy to sell ad space.
