Staging Ronald McDonald House
In September of 2007, Ronald McDonald Houses all over the United States were attacked by stagers wielding pillows, lamps, rugs, mirrors, art, floral arrangements and lots of love, fun and creativity. It was a joy to be able to use our talents to give back to the community that's given so much to us.
The Denver team transformed five rooms from nice "away-from-home" spaces to beautiful, warm, cozy and inviting areas to rest, relax, reflect and renew in the midst of monumental personal challenges.
International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) started the ball rolling with $300. PPI donated two beautiful pictures valued at $500. And IAHSP members contributed another $1350 worth of pillows, artwork, mirrors, floral arrangements, lamps, books and decorator pixie dust.
Thank you to all who made this project so successful and so much fun! A special thanks to Kendra Trebil, House Manager for her gracious support and to our friend, Ronald McDonald who stopped by with hugs juggling.
Most especially, thank you to all the parents and kids who dropped by to watch, thank us, and say how much they loved what we were doing!
