It's #flashbackfriday and we can't stop obsessing over Karen's STUNNING✨ home reveal😱😀!
Renowned American Interior Designer, @kellywearstler , started the #designerchallenge to encourage fellow designers to give back to the community and share their talent by creating homes for former foster youth. You wouldn't believe how many talented volunteers have taken up the #designerchallenge 🙌! In fact, tomorrow we will be creating an amazing home for an incredible former foster youth with a remarkable team! @22Interiors have courageously taken up the #designerchallenge and we can't wait for Calah to feel right at home🏠!

We can't stop and we won't stop creating homes for youth who have aged out of the foster care system😄🙌! Comment "WHOOOHOOO🎉" if you are excited about Calah's home creation!

We love to ensure every home we create for youth aging out of the foster care system demonstrates the uniqueness of every individual we serve😀✨! From the books to the art paintings that are hung on the walls. Every item is essential for youths to THRIVE in their new home!

We are extremely THANKFUL and GRATEFUL to @piercebrosnanofficial and @keelyshayebrosnan for their incredible donations! Each custom painting created by Pierce Brosnan has brought much happiness to youth's faces😄. Every youth who has received "The Book of Hope" by Jane Goodall and Douglas Abrams, donated by Keely Brosnan, leaves them feeling excited to read this amazing book that exudes encouragement and motivation🙌. THANK YOU VERY MUCH PIERCE and KEELY!! Your kindness and thoughtfulness have touched many lives and have made every home special✨!

"Home means STABILITY. Home means a SAFE SPACE. Home means something that I HAVE, it's not up to someone else to define that for me. I can define HOME for myself"

Having to endure the stressful process of aging out of the foster care system, Tanisha can confidently say that she now has her very own HOME🏡✨. We are so proud that Tanisha has secured her first-ever home🙌! We made sure to invite a remarkable group of ASOH volunteers to help create a modern, beach-inspired🌊, and beautiful home for Tanisha. Thank you @ring for creating Tanisha's home in just 90 minutes! You have outdone yourselves completely and immensely😀. By showing up, sharing your love❤, and gifting Tanisha an incredible Ring camera - you have demonstrated the importance of being present for Tanisha and the value of community.

As always, THANK YOU to our generous partners who donated exquisite items for this home @lampsplus @parachutehome @casper, @abbyson, @shelterpartnership, and @ashleyoffical for your amazing contributions! Your support means we can continue with our mission of preventing homelessness and decreasing furniture poverty❤.
