Enchanted Makeovers

A few months ago, I was introduced to Enchanted Makeovers through a friend.  That night, when I went home and pulled up the website,  I was totally unprepared for the emotional journey ahead of me.  This incredible organization was founded by Terry Grahl, a talented designer who closed her decorating business to devote all her time and energy to making over shelters for abused and neglected children and women across the country.

While checking out the website, two "before and after" videos in particular affected me.  I would like to share them with you.  Although this is a national organization,  the shelters in the following videos are in the Detroit area.

This one is a shelter for abused and neglected girls:

This project was a shelter for abused women...

I will be participating in an Enchanted Makeovers project this fall in the Detroit area.  The project is an 18 room makeover and the creation of a sewing room for a Detroit shelter, Alternatives for Girls.  

Here is a video on "Alternatives for Girls":

If you live in the Detroit area, they are in need of volunteers to paint rooms and furniture.  If you do not live in the area or you would like to help in another way, here is a list of items needed for the project:

~20 brand new pillow protectors
~5 sets of brand new white twin sized sheets
~30 brand new twin sized mattress pads

If you would like to donate any of these items or participate in the painting, please contact me at theyellowcapecod@yahoo.com for details.

You can also make a general monetary donation to the organization via the Enchanted Makeovers website.  

Thank you in advance,
