his name is gerrit smith.  he's an artist who happens to also be the authority on "green" home renovations in the portland, oregon area.

he also happens to have one of the biggest hearts known to man.

here's an article about him and his "crew".  he's the tall, bald dude and the girl with the pink hair is his partner, jill.  she is equally amazing.

FDP: Gang Green

the video that's included with the article is the kids who helped remodel the house showing the reporter around.  it's pretty incredible.

That is really cool.  I should hook him up with my friend in Seattle who is beginning to sell "green" container homes.  His company is called Uberblok.  Anyway, that is really cool that he got those kids involved and stuff...being from Portland I can appreciate how many teens need mentors and a project!
