As mentioned here, I was working on a charity project for a women’s shelter.
The coordinators have been working hard to get press for us, so I’m not allowed to share the completed project just yet.
But I can share a sneak peek:
Yesterday, Vanessa sent me the email that was sent to her by the woman who moved into the room I designed.
Here’s what she had to say:
Hello all of the GSC Project Designers and Coordinators.
My name is Destiny Coleman. I have been a resident at the Good Shepherd Center for Homeless Women & Children since February of this year and recently moved from #305 into my new room, #312. Please allow me to extend my utmost gratitude for giving not only of your time, talent, and money, but of your hearts. It takes a lot for someone to put their passion into filling someone else’s life with joy. And with a grateful heart I say thank you. I love the color scheme, the sophisticated Victorian Theme, and the modern Twitter Twist to my room, all done with a touch of class. It fits me! Only one thing….Can I take the designers with me when I move into my own apartment???? No, really 🙂
Again, I would like to say THANK YOU, and your passion is a well received gift.
Many Blessings to your future endeavours.
Being able to give back with a skill you’re so passionate about is rewarding in and of itself. But to be able to give back to someone who at one point had close to nothing doubles in scope.
I had no idea which woman would move into the room I created. I just knew that this woman deserved a warm and welcoming space.
Everyone deserves to live beautifully.
Thank YOU, Destiny. It was truly a pleasure.
And happy weekend to everyone!
