Enchanted Makeovers
May 6, 2013

I feel so very blessed to be on the Enchanted Makeovers' team as the Chief Operating Officer. I get to see each and every day how hard the organizaiton works to fulfill the mssion. We just completed our largest makeover ever! For the majority of 2012, we worked at the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries to transform their Genesis III house. We completely transformed 21 bedrooms with 53 beds, hallways and create a sacred sewing room. Over 300 people including mural artists, crafters, sewers and volunteers and around the country helped to transform this house into a home that inspires all who live there while they are re-building their lives. And, we are already moving full-steam ahead with the next project!
I hope you will join us! It will transform you beyond your dreams!

Enchanted Makeovers
November 12, 2012

Enchanted Makeovers is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization that impacts lives in ways I never thought possible! I have been involved during an actual homeless shelter makeover for women and children and the impact on everyone involved in amazing. For many of the women or teens, they have tearfully shared that this was the first time anyone cared enough for them to make them feel worthy. The impact of just sharing lovingly hand-made items was so dramatic. In most cases, the residents who call a shelter "home" are used to receiving donations that are actually trashed items people have thrown away. When Enchanted Makeovers came in with everything beautiful and hand-made, it touched their hearts to know everyone is worthy and deserving of love. We all learned the fundamental lesson of unity among people.
