In addition to the community center, DIRC will also "stage to dwell" the home of a recent Habit for Humanity homeowner. This will include ASP staging services as well as providing furnishings and accessories for their home.  A cash donation to the Ronald McDonald House is also being made by DIRC.

Members of IAHSP around the US and Canada will come together during this week to help local organizations and individuals in their communities who are in need of Staging services.  Places such as nursing homes, schools, women's shelters and individuals in need of selling their homes are potential candidates to be staged.

How cool is that Karen?  If everyone, or every organization got just a little bit involved, what a difference we'd see in the world.

Received my "cardboard" sofa today.  Am waiting on the slip cover to assemble and see how good I can make it look :-)  Will give you a heads up before I post.

So true Terry my friend, so true. When reaching outside ourselves we become better people.  To walk in another's shoes if only for a few hours is so humbling.

Can't wait to see your finished product!

I just spent 9 hours at our local Ronald McDonald House yesterday Karen. We got tons of rooms painted with 18 of my friends. I am unable to attend the rest of this week...which is why I wanted so badly to recruit tons of help and really get their week started off with a BANG by having all of the rooms paints. Mission accomplished!!!

 

Hope your week is successful too!  SO rewarding!!!

All the best,

Beth

That's wonderful Beth! We are going to give RMH a check today and tomorrow and Thurs. work on the community center at the Dallas Habitat for Humanity offices.  Next week we're extending it to stage a Habitat client's home for living.  I'm excited and so happy to hear of your experience.  It is great to give back.
