When actor Brad Pitt visited New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward two years after Hurricane Katrina, he was moved to action by the lack of progress in that historic, working class community. In a bold move, Pitt committed to help rebuild in the hardest hit area of the city.

That was the beginning of what is now known as Make it Right, a philanthropic outreach founded by Pitt in 2007 with a mission of building healthy homes, buildings and communities for people in need. All Make It Right projects are LEED Platinum certified and Cradle to Cradle inspired – meeting the highest standards of green building.

Enter Benjamin Moore paints – and Nashua.

Last week Benjamin Moore announced its biggest initiative ever to revitalize communities across North America through the launch of “Main Street Matters.”

Nashua is one of only two towns nominated in New Hampshire – it's between us and Lebanon!

The effort will be undertaken with the help of multiple partner organizations around the country, including Make It Right.

The campaign asks consumers around the country to cast their vote online for which 20 Main Streets should be revitalized of the more than 100 North American cities nominated at www.paintwhatmatters.com.

Benjamin Moore will not only provide the paint and supplies needed for façades, porches, railings, shutters and other exterior building trims, but its color experts will consult on the best choices to enhance the architectural style, regional influences and historic references in each community.

Professional painters, many of them members of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America, will be hired, putting another segment of local business to work along with the local Benjamin Moore retailer who will be mixing the paints that are used.

You can also post a photo and a brief story about Nashua's Main Street on the Benjamin Moore Facebook page.

Benjamin Moore will post the final list of Main Streets and towns to be repainted online in July.

***Click here now to vote for Nashua. You can vote once a day every day between now and June 30.***

Joplin named in new contest; victory would paint Main Street

Joplin could paint the town if it wins a social media contest.

Paint manufacturer Benjamin Moore is holding a “Main Street Matters” promotion. One hundred North American cities have been nominated. People can vote online and the paint maker, along with partners in the promotion, will paint the Main Streets of the 20 cities that receive the most votes. Actor Brad Pitt and his “Make It Right” foundation are helping to promote the project.

Joplin is one of three cities in Missouri that is eligible. Cape Girardeau and Kirkwood also are in the running. The nearest Midwest competitors are Eudora and Garden City in Kansas, Fort Smith, Ark., and Norman, Okla.

Benjamin Moore will provide the paint and supplies needed to freshen facades, porches, railings, shutters and other exterior trims of buildings on the town’s Main Streets. Color experts from the company will provide advice on color selections that are best suited for the architectural style of the buildings involved, regional influences and historic references. Professional painters from the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America will be hired to do the work.

David Melancon, chief marketing officer of Benjamin Moore, in a statement said of the contest, “Our Main Streets are the vital hubs of our communities — and Benjamin Moore and our network of independent dealers have always been integral parts of Main Street. The investment we’re making in communities around North America is core to our business and to who we are; Main Streets make us who we are and we’re proud to honor that with this effort.”



Voting

Votes will be accepted until midnight on June 30 on the contest website at www.paintwhatmatters.com
