Do you have a killer rehab project you're itching dig into, but you lack the resources to get it started? Do you wish you could have the help of a pro like Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis? Well, now you can have both. Nicole is so passionate about restoration that she's teamed up with handheld torch manufacturer Bernzomatic for the "Find Your Fire" contest to fund the three best community revitalization projects in America; think cleaning up a neighborhood playground or restoring a local landmark. The project must use a blowtorch in some way.
"I really need people to understand how easy it is to apply and win this project," Nicole told us. You merely log onto Bernzomatic.com/Grants and submit your project by Dec. 7. Nicole will then help select 10 finalists and America will vote to determine the three winners, who will each receive a $10,000 community grant and slew of Bernzomatic products. The project with the most votes will also receive a helpful visit from Nicole.
"I'm actually looking at these projects [submissions] everyday," Nicole told us, so we had to ask her what makes an application stand out when she's looking for finalists. Her answer was simple: "Get creative! People need to get creative on this," she said, adding with a laugh, "throw a rescue dog in there somewhere, that always gets my heart."
