WWV Gets Great Response to Bill Rancic House Build in Jacmel
It was fun last night watching the hit “Giuliana & Bill Show” on the Style Network, and I couldn’t help cheering when he and his friends met Randy Mortensen, WWV President, at the house in Jacmel, Haiti that Bill had arranged to get built. They all worked alongside a crew of Haitian construction workers that had been trained by WWV. Bill arranged to build the house in order to keep a promise that he’d made to the family of Madame Josette. (See previous blog post).
As part of the show, Bill talked to the camera and told viewers to go to the World Wide Village website to support our work in Haiti. Within moments after the announcement people were on the website. Within 30 minutes after the show was over World Wide Village had received several pledges and several inquiries into taking mission trips to Haiti. We’re confident the interest, and donations will continue, especially since the show will be repeated many times on the Style Network (check listings for show times).
To paraphrase Giuliana Rancic from the show, “We’re really proud of Bill for what he and his friends did in building the home for Madame Josette and her family.” We are proud to be able to call Bill a friend of World Wide Village and look forward to helping him build more homes in Haiti.
