Did you watch the first episode of Tin Man last night on the SCI FI Channel? I took a break to watch it and now I am hooked.

Tin Man is a SCI FI Channel mini-series that takes “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” to a new realm. You will catch surprising similarities to the original movie, but it is not a remake.

Why am I discussing a science fiction mini-series on a blog about giving?

In the mini-series, an ordinary Kansas girl journeys beyond the yellow brick road to discover the meaning of home. In real life, the SCI FI Channel in partnership with Habitat for Humanity are working together to create homes.

They created an initiative called “Brick by Brick” that will fully fund a home build project in Kansas. To reach that goal, through December you can buy $10 virtual “bricks” towards the build at Through both on-air promotion and this online fundraising campaign, more homes for more families will be built down the road.

The build is already underway and Tin Man stars, Alan Cumming and Kathleen Robertson, and Dave Howe, SCI FI Channel's EVP/GM, are volunteering to do their part.

Consider buying some "bricks" to help a family have a much needed home. You will feel like skipping down a yellow brick road when you do.
