Miracle Makeovers By Design Gives Back - Comments For Cancer Drive!

I'm so pleased to introduce you to the Miracle Makeover Program by Design Gives Back!    Kelee Katillac is an Interior Designer and founded the makeover program to brighten the lives of cancer patients. Each year she, along with a truckload of volunteers, creates knock-out, fun and inspiring bedroom re-do's.

PLEASE pass this on via all your social networks - 
we have ONLY 4 DAYS to help! 
Your comments raise funds for the next makeover!


Charlie!



This year's recipient of a room makeover is an awesome boy, Charlie Grady. Charlie is an 8 year old boy with tumors, but you'd never know it! He is bright and courageous and has a huge heart. Each Christmas Charlie hands out toys to children at his local hospital's children's ward.


Before: Charlie's room that he shares with his brother. 






AFTER!





I'm only giving you a sneak peak because I want you to see the full video and meet Charlie and his family:
