Clark rebuilds in Joplin, MO - May 2012

Clark Howard rebuilds in Joplin MOMarking the one-year anniversary of the Joplin tornado, Clark Howard returned to the decimated Missouri city to build a Habitat for Humanity home during a special day of reconstruction and healing. The consumer champ is building alongside hundreds of volunteers pouring in from across the country.

The May 22 build got off to a great start. "We're not even one full day into the build of the Habitat house I'm sponsoring in Joplin," Clark says, "and I've already firmed up plans to return next year to do it all over again with the help of some new friends!" Read more about it here.

Executive producer Christa sends this video report direct from the work site just prior to the first build day:
