Have you ever heard of a vision board? A visual representation of your visions for the future, pictures of your goals and dreams. Today I am excited to share with you that one of those dreams on my board have become a reality. For years I have had a brochure for Habitat for Humanity pinned to my vision board. When I pinned it there, I had no idea what this might look like but I knew that I wanted to be a part of improving the lives of others, to creating happy, safe homes for others…to help others “Create a Beautiful Life”.
I don’t remember what it was specifically that sparked this particular idea but I was sharing the idea of teaming up with Habitat with a lifelong friend and low and behold she knew someone who knew someone and my idea came to life!
I met with Jeanette Martin, Building Service Coordinator and Fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity Upper Fraser Valley and together we have created “The Passionate Restore”!
First of its kind, The Passionate Restore is a unique event. On April 21st, there will be only 20 tickets available allowing people to makeover one of the beautiful furniture pieces currently for sale at Habitat with the globally recognized Chalk Paint ™ by Annie Sloan. With the assistance of one of The Passionate Home paint experts, you will be guided on how to recreate your piece of furniture into a show stopper worthy of raising the much appreciated funds to contribute to building homes in the Upper Fraser Valley. Once finished, masterpieces will be judged by three celebrity judges and will go up for sale with all proceeds going towards the construction of partnership homes.
This is a great opportunity to give back to the community or plan a team building exercise, as well as to shop at Habitat the day of the event and take home a one of a kind creation. Thanks to the sponsorship of Tara Gentles, Mortgage Expert DLC Canadian Mortgage Experts, the event will also include a free kid’s sign making workshop. This fun custom workshop, led by one of our TPH team members will encourage and guide your young artists using Chalk Paint™.
There will be door prizes and refreshments will be available to purchase thanks to Taste of Heaven Gourmet Sausages and Starbucks Abbotsford. Please see the poster below for additional specific details and be sure to secure your spot today! If your company would like to donate a door prize, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
