THANK YOU!!!

BridgeYou would think we were in the rain forest lol..I really like this picture- see the person within? You can not get a small idea of how grand this site is.. and this is just ONE site zoned for clean up…

Trash Removal Crew this and more was causally thrown to rot and contaminate our earth…

Trash Removal Crew 2 I was really in shock! I could not believe the things we pulled out of the dirt. See the metal fan?

Fearless Helpers!

Look at our fearless crew!! And this was a steep hill of construction debris. Most of it was either wood, rotten sheet rock, tiles, and some wood planks with rusty nails !That did not deter these volunteers- they climbed up, and loosened some of the harder pieces for us below to grab and bag.

One of the key moments which stick out most in mind is that all of us thought we were volunteering for vine cutting and removal- NOT trash removal. When it  said “We are the Trash Removal Crew” by our coordinator Ayana (sp?) for a moment everyone was said “what?” then one person said- “Well, let’s get to cleaning..” and another pulled a pail out of the wheel barrel and started picking up trash… it was ON…. It was wonderful to have shared the same space, and worked with these people, even for a little while. THAT was very encouraging, in the midst of all that is going on in the world we were united.

I have a few more, some of the reception as well. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend that- I had to run to a home buyers seminar I spoke at in Washington Park.

BeltLine Cleanup day was

Amazing…

Uplifting

Encouraging

It was awesome to see SO many volunteers to help kick off the clean up in the West End, Westview section of Atlanta. I, as a resident, am truly thankful to all who do not live in this area that ventured out to help. I had NO clue what to expect…. especially being assigned to the Trash Pickup group……yikes! *I thought I signed to cut down vines* LOL… but hey, I go with the flow. It’s MY community right? Apparently it is MY community and the home to MUCH hidden construction debris. Would you believe right on Langhorn, hidden in the Kudzu we found house doors, bathroom tile (in tack- 1/4th of a wall) several car batteries, MUCH molded sheet rock,rusty paint cans, huge plastic primer cans, counter tops-granite (* hidden treasure lol) brooms and the list could go on and on- to summerize- we found a HOUSE..lol.. or what WAS a house. It was amazing..and I didn’t get grossed out by picking up all the rusty stuff (with gloves) lol.. which, if you know me,the thought of rust next to me freaks me out.

I might have some pictures to post later- one of the volunteers said she would email me a few.. 🙂 Hope to get those to you soon!
