For Larry and Melissa Beach and their 13 children, recipients of a new house from ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, their new digs came up a nice, green surprise courtesy of Jessica Alba.

The actress greeted the family during the “reveal” portion of the show and showed off the eight solar panels she donated to grace the roof of the 6,340-square-foot, two-story house. It’s expected that the panels will help reduce the families annual electric bill by more than $1,200. From The Daily News,

The Beaches’ house was wrecked by Hurricane Ike and the family lived in mobile homes on their property until the popular reality series showed up last week to build them a house that would meet their large family’s needs. For years, the Beaches have been foster parents to several special needs children.

The episode is scheduled to air this coming March.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
