This is the only thing I have ever asked for, and this is hard. But I know sometimes that one has to humble themselves and put your pride aside. Here goes, I have been through a lot but I am still here by the grace of GOD, and for that I am GRATEFUL. I would love to be chosen for an EXTREME MAKEOVER. If I am chosen for a makeover I would be so GRATEFUL and would never ask for anything else in my life, because everything else I could make happen on my own after that. PLEASE consider me as one of your MAKEOVER contestants, I would be so GRATEFUL. By GODS GRACE, Gail

I'm a 55 year old woman. I became disabled due to a back injury. My Grandmother left me a home to call my own when she pasted away, but being on a limited income has limited me when it comes to fix up money. I cant even afford insurance. The roof on my house is about to fall in over me. I have a while left to live here on earth with the help of God and if I don't get help I will have no home to live in .Please help . I would even pay back the money used if you will accept a small payment monthly. It would give me a sense of well being, and a better quality of life. thank you for your time.

Hello I live in Statesboro, ga I am not use to expressing my feelings because I have been through a lot having a tumor before but this isn't about me it is about what my grandmother has done and how I want to thank her for what she done for this county and people lives in general. My name is Demetrius Reddick I am 20 years old been in and out of my grandmother's house all my life. my grandmother name is Deloris Reddick she is a baker, mother, nanny, and a all around hard worker throughout her whole life. My grandmother is the nicest ,sweetest ,most kindest and caring person you could ever meet. My grandmother worked at Georgia Southern University for forty years straight to feed not only her three kids but also grand kids and great grand kids as well. She has been honored at Gsu for baking the best cakes and other sweets for them. Even though she worked there before she worked side jobs as well she cleaned houses for people for little of nothing. She had good connection with theses people and there families. She would make money anyway she could but when she got home in stead of feeding or tending to her self, she would give her first and last to one of us I have three sisters I'm the only boy and third oldest my little sister Amber stayed in and out of jail my grandmother took care of her kids my other sister kids just for them to do whatever they wanted to do she always wanted her dream kitchen but never could finish or even start the way she wanted. The wife of a deceased husband/pastor breaking her back to take care of kids that isn't even hers. She raised us more then our mother we call our grandmother mama instead of grandma because we know how she took her time and money to help should be her time to finally rest in her worry free dream house in peace. I'm sorry this message is all over the place but I really love my grandmother and i would do any thing to see a smile on her face again, she means so much to me and many people. I just want her to know deep down inside her heart that we love her because she cant even get her teeth finished or eat right because she wants to help so much. I feel deep in my heart this will let her know how much she is really loved.

Hello, we are a small Baptist church in one of the cities hardest hit by the earthquake and tsumami in Chile in February 2010. Unfortunately our temple was severely damaged and had to be demolished. Currently we gathered in a hall that does not allow access to the elderly and people with special needs. My husband and I are from Brazil and came here to help the Chilean people, leaving our 3 daughters in that country, but those two years we were here, the resources have been scarce and we could not do more than remove the debris from the ground . Please come to Chile and help us build a temple to our congregation. We trust in God and hope that He brings them up here.

Hi I'm from the island of Guam and never left the Marianas
I am a mother of 3 going on 4 sons, my oldest is turning 5 in April, second oldest is turning 4 on Nov. and my third is turning 2 in July and I am pregnant with my youngest (5mnth). I am currently living with my parents and is not planning on leaving because of their conditions, my Dad is Diabetic and is starting to have trouble walking and standing and my Mom is constantly sick so most times its hard for her to take care of my Dad and just recently my oldest sister moved in to the house because she was having issues with her land lord. We live in a 2bedroom house and we had to close up the living room and build an extension in the back for my sisters family of, all together 7 to live in. The space is not the main issue, you see we had a major leakage in the restroom that effected the small bedroom and the kitchen and caused so much mold and mildew to spread. We payed to get it fixed but the leaking came back a year later and then we had another issue with another leaking, the main water pipe, it really ranked up our water bill to the thousands, we just had it fixed but we had it fixed before but just like the leaking in the house it didn't last long for it to leak again. My main concern is the health and safety for my children. Wish I can tell you more but I can't explain through writing

I suffer from manic depression and have pain control issues from 7 failed surgery attempts on my back. 1998 I was in a motor vehicle accident that rolled over and caught fire. There was no time to get out the truck, drivers side down was fully engulfed with flames. My husband at the time knocked my daughter out of the way and got himself out first. He stood on my head and shoulders to get himself out, kicking me in the face as he did so. I am a published Author, my book "Agony" explains in detail the whole account of the accident and my 1 month stint in a burn unit. 30 % of my body is burned. My teeth have suffered from our lack of finacial help and are in a bad state of also need a tummy tuck. Can you help me with any of this? It would be a dream come true after what Ive been through. Contact info 832-404-3888

I think thats the whole purpose of what you guys do. Like the rest of the world I still not understanding the tragedy we saw happen in Newtown, I live near by, work in Sandy Hook for about 10 years and never suspect the Newtown cops would get any busy than giving us speeding tickets or something like that. Well... I guess I was wrong. Their presence was huge like the Fire Department, Hospitals, the community got closed to survive the pain, trying to fill up gaps w/ love. The same way now ,I think , and I'm sure we going to have a lot of people to agree, we could have an extreme makeover on the Elementary School, to celebrate the lives of those who survived, to show the heroes they made a difference saving over 500 lives, give the community one more chance to show we are together, we want participate rebuilding Newtown. please, take a minute, and think if you guys would be happy to help us to give Newtown other reasons to be remembered of. Thank you for all the happiness your show provides to the families, always going to your fan, please let me know if you can do it, i'd love make part of it. Denise
i am 13 years old and i want to help my mimi and poppy live in a new house. during hurricane sandy their house got washed away. they lived right on the water and there was at least 4 feet of water in their house. right now they are living with us and its wonderful famiky time but they need to have a warm home to themselves. my family and i all think that this would be a great surprize for them. we all love them so much and this would be a gift that they would remember for the rest of their lives. please choose us because words dont even describe how much this will make all of us feel:)
Since, when i was young. so many times i encountered some issue that i am the one who have ugliest faces in the world considering that i have more scars in my body. That time, i was thinking that this issue will never stop until i die. I tried so many times to find some remedies to lessen my scars, my brownies skin but still not effected since im not the rich one.
One day, i heard about the Extreme Makeover and I am wishing and pray that one day i will be the one of the contestant, and am wishing i experience what would be my look after i make over.
thank you for this chances and hope i will be the one of your lucky guest.

i am 12 and my mum is 38. i realy want to help my mum be the person she used to be, when i was born she was in a very abusive relationship that changed her she was abused and still has the scars, she had to try protect me and herself. that made her lose trust in men she has been hurt and used by friends and has lost trust in all people her family wasnt there to help her wich made her stressed and when she finally tryed to start new she ended up in another bad relationship she has been attacked and that stoped her going out she feels depressed and hates people seeing her the way she is she is single and sais that she will always be single and alone she has no confidence and has gained weight that she cant handle i dont even know how she got to her size so fast its hard for her to lose the weight because of her knees and her bad back she cant handle going into puplic places and being seen she has a mental illness that started since the abuse she gets upset when she goes to get dressed because she doesnt have many nice or tidy clothes she struggles with going out even just to the shops every day she puts on make up because she hates seening herself without it even if she isnt going anywhere, she sais she hasnt got many good friends because she has been hurt so much and the few she is friends with ask her to go out with them but she doesnt coz she feels to bad about herself we have a spare room with all my mums old clothes that useed to fit her but she never goes in there coz it upsets her and she has no social life because she is to stressed and has been hurt so much in so many different ways that it has made her ill, it makes me sad to see my mum so sad and not the happy person she used to be and to hear her talking bout how she will always be alone and how sad she feels i want to help her and to be able to see my mum out with her friends and to be able to have a social life i would love to just have her be happy and feel good about herself for once and it would do so much for her and me i realy wish i could help her but i just dont know how but she has always watched exereme makeover and i hear her saying that she wishes that she could be luckey enough to have that happen to her she only wants to be able to feel confident around people again and she has told me the only thing that keeps her going is me and i would love to be able to do her this one special thing for her coz i know it would be a dream come true for her. i know that alot of bad things have happend to my mum and alot i havent been told about some things have been so bad that she doesnt realy speak of it and its upseting coz she realy does try her best to make a difference there is just to much to explain that if i were to tell you everything it would be paiges of badluck and pain, she is mentaly and physicaly handycaped that it makes everything so much harder she was 8 stone and has put on another 8 stone hes has tryed to lose the weight but it just gets worse we went to a gym earlyer and it was hard for her to be able to walk in and as soon as she saw men she lost it with herself and could not handle the fact that there could be someone looking at her she hates being around people coz she is not mentaly stable enough to cope with the stress we dont have enough money to bye something to help her lose the weight coz she rather put me first. things that you find easy like going to the shop being around people my mum finds dificult she stays in hiding herself away she spends her birthday alone because she just has nothing nice to do she only goes out when she has to, her parents try to help her but nothing realy helps her and i know that this is my only chance to make her happy and to actually help her, if you can think of all the bad things that happen to people its all happend to her. she sais she will never be picked anyway so im trying to prove her wrong and do this for her coz i know this is her dream for something to finally go right in her life. and its not right to have my mum say she hopes i dont turn out like her its not right for anyone i dont think anything more can go wrong for my mum i just want to make her wish come true. from Angel x
