PSSSST-pass it on!

To add to the Hurricane Sandy relief effort, three local women business owners are joining forces to contribute in the way they know best. The result: Will Work for Food, a fundraiser to benefit the American Red Cross.

Inspired by Home Stager and AR member extraordinaire Janet Jones' post last year, three lower Hudson Valley residents Denise Hoffmann, Allison Segreto and Marie Graham -Accredited Homes Stagers and Interior Decorators all-will be offering a limited number of one hour consults free, in exchange for a direct and immediate $100.00 contribution to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief.

Maybe you have friends or clients who need a fresh look in their life? If you are looking to amp up your own home for the holidays, start the process of getting it ready to sell-or even ring in the New Year as a more organized you? NOW is your opportunity to get started, while giving a hand to those affected by the superstorm.

Each woman created and run their own, independent business. Together they represent almost 60 years of hands-on, in-home design experience, Will Work for Food is the first time the three have collaborated.

Appointments will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis, so don't wait-here's how it works:

  • Check out the profiles of the companies, and the different services.
  • Choose the professional and the service you want, and follow the links below to contact them and directly to schedule an appointment.
  • At the end of your one-hour consult, write a check for $100 (or more, if you are so inclined!!) made out to the American Red Cross, and give it to your provider. They will have pre-addressed official Red Cross envelopes, and will mail it on your behalf.

Questions are welcomed, call today!

Our spaces affect us profoundly...and so many other parts in our life fall into place when our spaces and possessions serve us in the best way they can. But getting there is much more than a pursuit of pleasing aesthetics.

 

Decorating and Staging are different, but much of the skill sets overlap, and each creates unique solutions that considers the needs, goals, resources, expectations, hopes and dreams of each client.

Bettering Westchester, Putnam and lower Fairfield counties since 1981, The Refreshed Home works collaboratively, and brings a thoughtful approach to the creative process. Proud to make a difference, as well as make a living. Offering specialty services such as remote and buyer consults, listing photo/video styling, guided and accompanied shopping, and accessory rental. We get in, get out, and you get on with your life.  Talk to me TODAY about how we can better your space!

Marie, thanks...unless you've lived through something like this you can't fully appreciate the loss.  The American Red Cross was here for us when the tornadoes came through on April 27th...I'll get that out in the mail tomorrow.

NIck-it is beyond anything I can comprehend. Janet Jones, AR Stager from Hawaii wrote about doing this last year, where she donated her consult fees to Maui Food Bank. I loved the idea as a general fundraiser, but the vivid wreckage of this storm made it clear now was the time.
