Bridging the gap between television and social media, Spontaneous Construction host, Ricky Paull Goldin, uses modern technology to assemble a renovation flash mob to bring one deserving homeowner’s desperate renovation project from dream to reality.

HGTV's Spontaneous Construction

A special episode of Spontaneous Construction airing Friday April 26 deals with the tragic aftermath of Super Storm Sandy. Families all over the East Coast were affected by the storm, with thousands unable to return and many homes still in disrepair. A native of Long Beach, Ricky returns home to the devastated area to help one family in need of a special renovation.

With the help of The View’s Sherri Shepherd and a social media flash mob of more than 60, Ricky helps to remodel the home of Lori and John and their six kids. Through a partnership with Optimum and HGTV this lucky family and it’s community are being rebuilt.
