On the Road to ‘Rebuilding Alabama’

Rebuilding Alabama LogoWe all followed along last Spring as a series of tornadoes made a destructive path across the southern United States — in awe of the power of Mother Nature. And, although several months have passed, rebuilding is not a quick or easy process. That’s why over a hundred Discovery employees have just landed in Birmingham, Alabama to team up with Habitat for Humanity to trade in their BlackBerries for hammers to make a difference in the lives of several families.

Among those on the frontlines of the storms in April were the teams featured in Discovery Channel‘s Storm Chasers and, appropriately so, Reed Timmer and Tim Samaras from the series will be lending a hand. Animal Planet‘s Dave Salmoni and TLC‘s Duggar Family (yes, all of them) will also be joining our employees, Reed and Tim to make a difference in our newest Discovery Impact initiative.

We’ll be keeping you updated on the progress over the next several days here and on Twitter (follow @DiscoveryComm and #ourimpact)…and stay tuned for a way you can participate and support Habitat for Humanity beginning on Sunday!
