Christmas Cards for Noah

On Tuesday WIB made Christmas cards for a little boy named Noah. Noah is 5 and dieing from cancer. His family plans to celebrate Christmas next week because Noah may not live until Christmas. His one wish was to receive Christmas cards, and so far the post office in his town, in MI, has processed over 80,000 cards for Noah. Thank you to everyone who wrote to Noah.

Wall-Raising Event for RIT Sustainable House Project

On Saturday, November 7, the Rochester Institute of Technology and Flower City Habitat for Humanity hosted a "Wall-Raising" ceremony, which kicked off the construction of a truly incredible project.

Flower City Habitat for Humanity is a non-denominational Christian housing ministry helping to eliminate substandard and poverty housing in Rochester, NY. Since 1984, FCHH has built or renovated over 160 houses, and is one of the largest Habitat affiliates in the northeastern US.

The Habitat for Humanity club at RIT, in conjunction with Engineers For a Sustainable World, began constructing a floor plan for a FCHH "environmentally sustainable" house. This project has been appropriately named the RIT Habitat for Humanity Sustainable House Project and is a great example of the innovative minds we have here at RIT.

Of course they managed to get a goofy candid shot.
