Design Gives Back provides rooms for hope, health and happiness for those in-need. Since 1992 we have facilitated life-changing workshops, community programs and inspirational makeovers.
Today, our MiracleMakeovertm projects help deserving individuals and families, as well as, the non-profit groups that sponsor them. Through inspiring video episodes and print stories you can see healing rooms for those who are sick, art therapy workshops for kids-at-risk and hope-filled homes for struggling families.
These MiracleMakeovertm television, internet, and print vehicles become ambassador and outreach for cause-organizations by helping to create awareness and funding. Our partners have included Habitat for Humanity International, Catholic Charities, The Starlight Foundation, Friends of Kids with Cancer, and many others.
Design Changes Things: When a room is falling apart it seems that things are hopeless. For Colette Gauthier, a cancer patient, this was especially true. So, in two and a half days, and on a tiny budget, we set out to change things. Transforming her rental house bedroom from bleak to beautiful helped her through chemotherapy. The restored and renewed space filled her with hope. A visual reminder that healing is possible for our homes ... and lives.
Thank-you to our corporate partners Masonic Pathways , Sherwin-Williams Paint, The Fairfield Inn by Marriot and Guideposts Magazine for providing the resources and volunteers that made this makeover possible. You are design heroes.
This Miracle Makeover was first published and aired by Guideposts Magazine to over 8 million readers and 30,000 views on the site and Vimeo. Since Guideposts' is now rebuilding we have just uploaded to YouTube for Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2015.
