Have you ever watched ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and thought, Gee, do I know a family that needs that kind of help.
Your opportunity has just come knocking.
Producers are looking for a Long Island family “whose home desperately needs to be rebuilt,” says supervising producer Rebecca Shumsky. “We really want to help families whose homes present major problems for the family, those big issues that affect the family's quality of life on a daily basis. We want to find deserving people who just don't have the resources, ability or time to fix those serious issues without our help.”
Here’s information on how to apply and a Web site for further information:
Interested families should e-mail a short description of their family story to CastLongIsland@gmail.com. A family or a member of their community may submit nominations. Each nomination must include the names and ages of every member of the household along with a description of the major challenges within the home. Anyone submitting a nomination should be sure to explain why the nominated family is deserving, heroic and/or a great role model for their community. If possible, include a recent photo of the family. All nominations must include a contact phone number. The deadline for nominations is March 15.

When Newsday asked Lindsay Spaulding, casting producer, why Long Island was chosen again, she replied, “We love Long Island! Everyone is very excited to find another great family from the area. The sooner we can find a deserving family, the better, because then we can build when the weather is nice!”
