Charities You Feel Closest To
Designing 4 Hope is the organization I feel closest to as I founded it to combine doing what I love to do – decorating – with helping children who are sick. We are based out of Montgomery County and do dream bedroom makeovers for children with life threatening illnesses. I’ve also had the blessing of partnering with Down Goes Cancer – The Joe Mak Memorial Foundation for several of our makeovers.

If You Could Have One Superpower, What Would It Be
I would love to have the “power to heal” the children we do room makeovers for. It breaks my heart to see all they and their families go through.
