The Pink Project
Product Announcement from Kee Safety Inc.
The Pink Project" is the specific initiative led by Actor Brad Pitt and Make It Right, to bring the nation and the world's attention to the devastation from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana. But the focus is not on the destruction, but on the rebuilding and renovation effort that the "Pink Project" is bringing to the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans.
The "pink" buildings are Pitt's way of calling out to American's and citizens worldwide, to help rebuild the neighborhood and way of life in the 9th Ward. This holiday season families can help rebuild New Orleans by sponsoring a whole house -- or just pieces of a house -- and revitalize the area once again.
Each pink building is constructed of a large framework of Kee Klamp fittings, and aluminum pipe. Each building is sectioned into roughly four modular pieces, so it can be easily moved, assembled and disassembled when needed. The pink coverings are created from 100% recycled material, manufactured by Lighthouse For The Blind in New Orleans.
There are a total of 150 disjointed pink buildings in the Lower 9th Ward. This is to represent the destruction and chaos that occurred as the floodwaters from Katrina rocked the neighborhood. And over the next 6 weeks, the buildings will be assembled together in their proper places as the donations for each house is received.
In this phase of the project, there are 150 houses available for sponsorship. And each house that is sponsored will help to put a family back in the neighborhood. Obviously the ultimate goal of the project, is to get all 150 houses sponsored by the end of the 6 weeks.
After the donations are in, each of the 150 chosen families will have an opportunity to choose from 13 different house layouts. Below are two examples of the houses that the families can choose from.
Do your part, and help support the rebuilding of beautiful New Orleans! You can find the donation button on the Make It Right website, listed below.
