Review for Special Spaces , Knoxville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2011 I joined Special Spaces as the director of the Orange County chapter. Special Spaces' mission touched me on a personal level. When I was 16 years old my 14 year old brother was struck with a childhood illness that had him in & out of hospitals for the next 20 years. He passed away at the age of 34 leaving behind a 3 year old son & 8 year old daughter. I know what these children & their families are going through. I knew that giving a child a dream bedroom where they could escape & feel normal & just be a kid would be rewarding but I was not prepared for how much these families would give me. I feel so blessed to be taken into their homes & their lives. The children, families, volunteers, donors, and retail stores that help us do what we do have shown me the most beautiful side of humanity. Denise Sutherland
