'Extreme Makeover' Builds for Girl Scouts

Last week, Earnie Graham was surprised by the crew of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition at the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia's Augusta office, where she works. This week, The Augusta Chronicle reports that officials from ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition showed up on her doorstep announcing that they would rebuild her south Augusta home, while she and her children went to Disneyland in California. But Graham was left speechless when the series officials showed her the new cedar log cabin that was constructed at Camp Tanglewood, a Girl Scout camp in Martinez.

Graham is the product sales manager for the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia's Augusta-area council and oversees the retail shop, office and cookie program. Show officials learned of Graham's passion for Scouting and wanted to include the camp in the project. If the choice was between her own home and something for the Scouts, Graham told show producers, she'd rather see a project help the girls. Awesome!
