Yes, our charity work is in full swing again! When it comes to changing lives (literally) thru the power of design, we can’t turn down an opportunity. This time we are partnering with the amazing Dallas based organization Dwell with Dignity to help them establish a provisional chapter in Atlanta. We will be working with a talented team of designers, organizers and DIYers to completely furnish and decorate a 2 bedroom home for a single mom with 2 small girls who was recently homeless.
The mission of Dwell with Dignity is to “help families escape poverty and homelessness through design: one household at a time.”
Our task is to help a young mom who has escaped a life of poverty and abuse, worked hard and saved her money so that she could give her little girls a better life. We are going to help her make her new home comfortable, happy and BEAUTIFUL.
Joann and I are specifically in charge of designing the little girls room! But boy do we need some help.
We’ve already had heart felt support from the following folks:
Woodstock Furniture Outlet: A set of bunk beds
Jay Scott Studios: An original piece of art
Lacefield Designs: Throw pillows on the bed
Dena Stormer of Hearts and Sharts: Refinishing of a dresser donated by Kandrac & Kole
Currey & Company: Dresser lamp
Steve McKenzies: Fabric for window treatment
SJC Window Designs: Labor to make custom window treatment
Chris Ray with Hangman Installations: Time and labor to install art and window treatments
We still need the following:
(2) sets of twin size sheets
(2) mattress covers
(2) inserts for standard pillow shams
Dress up trunk and dress up clothes for a 3 year old and 14 month old
Small table for beside bottom bunk
Small bedside lamp
Pink or purple crib blanket
Age appropriate books
Book shelf (these little girls love to read and be read to!)
Art supplies (we have artists in the making)
Small chandelier (every girl needs a little bling!)
