Plano Home Stager has a Heart for Haiti February 2010

By
Home Stager with Home Star Staging

As I've been watching the stories unfold on TV the past few weeks my heart has been with the people of Haiti.  I cannot imagine the horror and pain the people of this country have been through in the wake of this enormous tragedy. 

Growing up in Miami, FL I knew first hand the plight of the people of Haiti and witnessed the "boat lifts" that took place as people fled their country in make shift rafts, dingies and other floatation devices in search of a better life.  People risked their lives and the lives of their loved ones, babies and children to escape the life they did not want in Haiti. Haiti has never in my lifetime been stable economically or otherwise and to see the devastation of what little was there to begin with is heart wrenching.

I was inspired by another home stager and fellow Active Rainer, Ashley Whittenberger, who posted that she was donating a portion of her company's proceeds from every sale they made in the month of January. As the weeks, months and years go by the need for this country will continue to be great.  I would like to propose the same for Home Star Staging in the month of February and I'm calling it a Heart for Haiti.

Heart for Haiti

For the entire month of February 2010, Home Star Staging will be donating 5% of all staging services sales to the American Red Cross for the mission in Haiti.

If you want 100% of your proceeds to go directly to Haiti, you should check out my cousin's foundation - The World Wide Foundation for Mercy & Sharing. She has been working to better Haiti for years. Her website is www.haitichildren.com.

You are awesome Karen!  I would make a call to the local newspaper with this story so that people who want to donate to Haiti can call you to work on their homes!  Great idea and so generous!  I hope you are abundantly blessed this month!
