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:

The devestation caused by the floods from back in May in Nashville is still being dealt with.
Of course many people helped by holding benefit concerts and sending clothes to help those affected by the floods, however it takes many months to get everything back to the way it was.
People are still struggling, and Garth Brooks has decided to step in.
He has decided to, for the first time in over 12 years, go back to Nashville and perform a benefit concert on December 13, for The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee in support of all those affected by flooding.
Garth made this announcement this morning on Capitol Hill. He was thanked by many state officials. Senator Lamar Alexander graciously said:
"I thank Garth for bringing Tennesseans together through his music and I know the proceeds from the concert, which he is generously contributing to the cleanup, will be put to good use helping people put their lives back together."
Thank you for your generosity Garth!
