ASB 2011: Omaha, NE

Instead of going to a Cancun, Hawaii, or another tropical paradise for spring break this year, we [...]took an Alternative Spring Break through BU's Community Service Center to Omaha, Nebraska. Working with Rebuilding Together, an organization dedicated to helping older community members feel comfortable in their homes, the #Omahomies (as they soon became known by) did simple home repairs to make the residents happier, safer, and more functioning in the place they called their homes.

The #Omahomies worked hard and had a great time; nine strangers met at 5:30am on a Saturday morning, took a 30 hour van ride (got locked out of said van in the middle of Iowa), and became close friends learning so much about one another and what it means to help out those in need.

Here's the YouTube link to watch the video at 720p!
