When it comes to building houses for those in need, no one does it like former President Jimmy Carter!

So of course when Garth Brooks wanted to help others he decided to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity!

He joined the hundreds of volunteers who have built over 100 homes in the Port-au-Prince area, hardest hit by the big Haiti earthquake.

People just think that because it's out of the news, the problem is over, but many are still living without proper homes!

The CEO for Habitat for Humanity said:

"Even though nearly three years have passed since the 2010 earthquake, there remains a dire need for adequate shelter in Haiti for many who were displaced from their homes, so we are bringing the Carter Work Project back to Leogane to help more families and to raise awareness of the ongoing efforts to rebuild lives. We sincerely thank all the volunteers, sponsors and especially the Carters for their dedication to improving the lives of our Haitian partner families who are eager to have safe, decent homes."

We just love when a big star gives their time to charity!

Garth could be doing anything else, from playing some guitar to swimming in a pool of money, but he decided to help others instead!

Way to go, Garth!
