Move that Bus, Bogart

December 20th, 2010

12-20-10Lisa Scarbrough saw a need and decided to do something about it. Even with having major surgery a few weeks prior, she spent the time while she was recovering, organizing donations of local businesses and getting volunteers to donate their time for the Stewart family in Savannah. Cabell Stewart, at the age of six months had a heart transplant. A couple months before his 2nd birthday he was diagnosed with Autism. For nearly two years, Brad and Amy Stewart have been living life in and out of hospitals with little time for anything else. The Stewart family was hoping to be the family chosen for an upcoming segment for the Extreme Home Makeover, but were not; enter Lisa Scarbrough. Lisa decided that she would create an Extreme Christmas Makeover for the Stewarts. An army of tradesmen did needed repairs and updating while landscapers toiled outside. The cleaning crew and decorators worked their magic indoors.
Lisa convinced me that The Kindness Bus Tour should remain in Savannah for another week to have us be the “Move that Bus” bus. A community came together to give this home a makeover in two days time. Brad and Amy have had very little time to pay attention to their home and with this Extreme Christmas Makeover, transformed their ranch-style home into a Christmas showcase home. I was proud to play a small part in this “best Christmas wish ever.”
