When Kellan Lutz first joined Twitter, his first tweet was the above picture and a note that he was getting sweaty in New Orleans building houses in St. Bernard Parish.
To give a little history, St. Bernard Parish was devastated when Hurricane Katrina blew through the area in August of 2005. A water way named, the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet or MRGO, as we know it, flooded the entire parish. Water was every where and up to roof tops of the homes in the area.
Five years later, people are still trying to return to "Da Parish" where they were born and raised. With a little help of course by Habitat for Humanity and the St. Bernard Project.
Kellan has been a big supporter of the St. Bernard Project while he was in town filming a movie in the spring of this year. Now is your chance to help out his cause and the great people of St. Bernard Parish.
Below is some information on the Pepsi Refresh Challenge, where $250,000 will go to the winning charity based on voting for such charity.
