On Sunday May 22, 2005 at 8/7c, STELLA COLOR is going to help the ABC hit show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, change the life of a heroic Native American family tragically caught in the Iraq War. Working with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s top designers, STELLA COLOR’S unique design concepts will add flourish and excitement to the show’s 2-hour season finale that will give a new lease on life to the children of PFC Lori Piestewa, who lost her life in Iraq in March 2003 when she, and her friend PFC Jessica Lynch and members of the 507 Maintenance Company, fell under attack by Iraqi insurgents. Lori left behind two young children, Brandon, 6 and Carla, 5.

STELLA COLOR is proud to contribute to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s efforts to create a real home environment for the Piestewa children. A member of the Hopi Tribe, Piestewa was the first woman killed in the Iraq War and is believed to be the first American Indian woman killed in a foreign war. The Lori’s children live on a reservation with their grandparents. Extreme Makeover :Home Edition and STELLA COLOR are going to change all that. With Lynch on board for the build, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” will help create a place for Lori’s parents to raise their grandchildren and honor their fallen hero daughter.

A show known for its fairytale endings and dreams-come-true transformations, STELLA COLOR is no stranger to the makeover concept.

While the details of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” are a closely guarded secret, (a job perfectly suited for the real Stella of STELLA COLOR – the little brown dachshund with big ideas the company was named for), it is guaranteed that the designs contributed by STELLA COLOR will be unique, one-of-a-kind innovations that add color and good cheer to a room. As with all STELLA COLOR creations, customization and personalized design elements will be central to the theme.
