On January 19, 2012, Internet Contrasts had the exciting opportunity to participate in the popular reality show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”, with a project aimed at benefitting Staff Sergeant Shilo Harris and his family. Harris was seriously wounded by an IED in 2007 while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom (the second Gulf War).

While the Harris family enjoyed a top-quality home makeover on all fronts, Internet Contrasts was honored to set up and configure a wireless network using a Watchguard XTM 21 wireless firewall, and provide a new Lenovo T420 laptop computer, complete with docking station, keyboard and mouse. What makes this system special are the customized amenities designed specifically to help the disabled hero, including a large touch-screen monitor and voice-activated applications. With his new computer setup, Staff Sgt. Harris is now able to give back to others in his career as a motivational speaker.

“While Internet Contrasts exclusively focuses on servicing business clients, providing a wireless network and computer for this wounded warrior and his family was our way of giving back to those who have sacrificed and given so much, so that we can enjoy the freedoms we often take for granted,” said Jarred Worth, General Manager of Internet Contrasts.

Internet Contrasts learned of the home build through their partner Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first ultraaccessible theme park, which is dedicated to providing family fun for people of all ages and abilities. Internet Contrasts was heavily involved in the planning, design, implementation, and support of the technologies necessary to make Morgan’s Wonderland possible.

This episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will be aired as a 2-hour special on ABC this December, and will in fact be one of the four final episodes of the hit show before it leaves the airwaves for good.
