Room For A Child
If you can dream it, you can do it - Walt Disney
This isn’t the first time Dawn’s responsible for creating the perfect little man cave, a quiet retreat for the mind to rest and dreams to grow, and it certainly won’t be the last. After more than 100+ bedroom makeovers over the span of 6 years, Dawn Gillespie is always ready to take on the challenge of creating the perfect bedroom oasis for a child in need.
Her non-profit, Room-for-a-Child, receives referrals from school social workers and registered charities. After meeting with the family and finding out what the child likes, Dawn crafts a design to act as the perfect backdrop for dreams (and homework!). Over two-three visits, she completes her mission and the child is left with a space all their own – typically kitted out with a bed, a new mattress, dresser and a desk.
How you can help
Dawn has a team of 40+ volunteers who help out with the renos and are always on the hunt for used furniture. The biggest challenge they face is always the cost of the new mattress. With another reno coming up, Dawn still needs the new boxspring and mattress. We’re polling funds to purchase a discounted mattress from Dawn’s mattress supplier and to help create the perfect space for dreams.
