We've grown accustomed to very special things coming through our door. Earlier this year we were honored by the near-daily influx of jaw-dropping sketches the I Love Architecture campaign.

Online goodness activators Goodnet announced today their Top 7 Skilled Volunteer organizations and Architecture for Humanity landed at number four!

Some HQ members are calling the device a "race track," but a more precise name would be "progress wall." For Humanity.
