The HGTV Lodge hosts country music artist throughout CMA Fest. Before the festival got started this week, HGTV enlisted the help of “Listed Sisters” for the first She Builds with the help of Rebuilding Together at Thistle Farms. Watch the video as “Listed Sisters” take us through the home where eleven women currently reside.
Rebuilding Together and its affiliate, Rebuilding Together Nashville, partnered with HGTV, to launch the She Builds initiative June 7 in Nashville. The initiative, presented by HGTV, is a nationwide volunteer event series, for and by women, providing critical home repairs and community restoration to create real change for women in need.
The Nashville event brought HGTV and the “Listed Sisters”, Alana and Lex LeBlanc of Franklin, together with local volunteers to National Rebuilding Day 2016 to restore one of the homes at Thistle Farms. Thistle Farms is a sanctuary helping women survivors of abuse, addiction, trafficking and prostitution by providing them with a safe place to live, counseling, job training and other basic life skills and services. This event will be followed by She Builds: New York and She Builds: Seattle in October 2016.
“With popular hosts like Alana and Lex from ‘Listed Sisters’, and mother/aughter duo Karen and Mina from ‘Good Bones’, it’s naturally intrinsic for HGTV to develop content that is inspiring and empowering for women,” shares Annette Brun, VP of Corporate Giving and Cause Marketing for HGTV’s parent company Scripps Networks Interactive. “Working with our national partner Rebuilding Together provides a platform that spotlights women helping women through roles typically filled by men. Breaking through these stereotypes gives women the confidence to pursue a fulfilling life, and we couldn’t be more delighted to be alongside Rebuilding Together for the inspirational journey.”
You can meet HGTV’s “Listed Sisters” at Fan Fair X located inside the Music City Center on Friday, June 10 from 2pm-3pm.
