Why white houses...

On April 30, 2002, AThousandRoses.org presented the Vanessa with 1000 roses during a taping of TRL. The idea for 1000 roses was inspired by Vanessa's hit, "A Thousand Miles". That song touched our lives, and the lives of so many others, so much that we wanted to give something back. These roses were donated to cancer patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City in hopes of making just one day a little bit better. Vanessa was not only flattered, but also amazed at the power and inspiration her songs gave to her fans.

After two years and on the verge of Vanessa's second CD, the team at AThousandRoses has begun work on a new project: building White Houses. The idea came as a suggestion from Christine (TSE) inspired by the single and has received extensive positive feedback from all NESSAholics. As done in April of 2002, AThousandRoses will collect money to be donated, this time to Habitat for Humanity.

Since we can not all be together in order to build a single house, we will instead be donating money for the purchase of the following items:

$10 = Box of Nails
$35 = Shingles
$50 = Low Flow Toilet
$75 = Window
$100 = Kitchen Sink
$150 = Front Door
$500 = Siding
$1000 = Wallboard
$2000 = Flooring
