From our great Team Endurathon:

“We are are the 7 Day count down!

And we need your help,we need volunteers!

Could you kindly forward this email to a few people who you think might be able to volunteer for for a couple hours or a couple days for a great cause

72 hour Extreme Home Makeover..”Flip For Education”

Seeking Volunteers

The Buy-Out Company is at it again….it has been 3 years since we did Carter’s Cause (see video) 72 Hour Extreme Home Make Over.

Carter’s cause was a total success with $106,000 raised to help Carter and his family. Multiple TV stations, radio stations, and magazines picked up the story and followed it to its completion.

This June 14th, 15th and 16th again, we are going to attempt to accomplish the near impossible task of a complete home renovation in just 72 hours. We need your help to make it happen.

We have purchased a home at 7159 S. Lincoln Way Centennial Colorado.  In these 3 days we will change it from an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan. We will then sell the home.  All of the net proceeds, which we hope to be around $100,000, will go to support local and international educational projects. (see Attached)

Will you please consider joining us to make a difference in our community and around the world?

How you can help

  1. You can volunteer to work…..below you will find a rough idea of what work will be happening each day. If you are a trade person or have a particular skill set please see if you can join us on the day that best fits your abilities. If you have no particular skill set, but just want to help we have great need for you as well, especially on Saturday the 16th.  Volunteers can come any day for an hour or two or come for the day. Each day we will start at 7AM and end at 8PM (at least most people) If you would like to help send me an email,text or call let me know when you will be available to work.
  2. If you can’t help but would like to make a donation. Please see the attached for the list of organizations we will be donating to with the proceeds of this project. If one sounds particularly compelling, you can make a donation directly to that organization. Please let me know if you need more information.
  3. We are still in need of food sponsors to feed volunteers each day. If you would like to help in this area that would be great…let us know
