The Hero Work Program – 2014 is Complete

It’s not really possible to communicate how much satisfaction you get from doing something for someone else…a total stranger that you will probably never meet. But knowing that every thoughtful detail, decision and sacrifice will make a difference for a youth that is at risk makes all the hard work worth it.  If you’ve been around the blog the last few months you might have read about all my amazing clients and vendors who donated furniture and the countless trips across town to pick up used Victoria treasures from here or there. I scoured thrift stores and pillaged my own house to fill this apartment with love and warmth…with a little edge.  One volunteer said it was the perfect “college kid” apartment and that made me happy:)  I wish the very very best to whoever lives in this space and I hope they feel all the love and heart that poured into every wire, nail, floor board, pipe, drop of paint and of course the furnishings and decor…There is Love. The Hero Work Program and Paul Latour are an indomitable force in this city…get involved with the next one…you won’t regret it!

OK here’s the pics!

I’ve had lots of questions about my design so over the next few days I will feature aspects of it and introduce you to the people and companies that made it happen:)
