Using all of their skills, talents, and courage Design Gives Back team members Sherry Mirador, Andy Fox and Jeremy Wood have come to the rescue of Elijah and Isaiah's room makeovers.
Sherry Mirador is a gifted seamstress and fashion designer. She has shared her passion for fashion and giving back with our makeovers for the past five years. Sherry is constructing curtains, pillows, duvets and more for the boy's rooms. An eye for detail helps her to create beautifully made products.
"I just love giving my gift for sewing to this family. Working with Design Gives Back allows me to use what I have in the service of others," said Sherry.
Andy Fox, the founder of Brainstorm -- a division of Bennett Packaging & Displays (digital printing), helped interior designer, Kelee Katillac, bring to life her vision of a comic book story in Elijah's room. As a graphic designer, Andy is morphing Katillac's imagery with Elijah's hopes and dreams into large scale murals, framed art and signage. Bennett Packaging & Displays offers cutting edge digital printing and design services.
Everyone knows that the Ninja Turtles live and fight the bad guys in New York City. Elijah is definite that the bricks in his comic book room have to be brown -- like in NYC. To help make the vision complete, Jeremy Wood, of Wood Wallcovering, Lee's Summit, Missouri, volunteered.
"It is so great to do something special with our business. Design Gives Back is amazing to work with and the level of project management and development for these families in-need is outstanding," said Jeremy.
