Chapter 6 Room for You Foundation

The Story of the Room Makeover Queen

Throughout the land the Room Makeover Queen was known as a kind and generous woman. She would grant room makeovers for those in need. Her heart was warmed as she watched in amazement at the magnificent things she had done!

Known as a home staging and room makeover expert, the Queen was always looking for ways to give back, to brighten someone's life the best way she knew how!

She is on the panel for Fresh Start After Divorce, giving decorating advice and tips to help women get through a trying time.
The Queen amuses herself by passing hours on creating ideas on the best way for each and every room makeover.

The Queen founded the Room for You Foundation to make a difference for those in difficult times.
What her recipients say...

The Queen is on the panel of experts for the Fresh Start After Divorce Mentoring Program and provides decorating advice and tips to help women get through a trying time.

The Queen understood the importance of creating a retreat within your own castle. A place of solace - that warms your heart and brings you comfort. The Queen wanted to give this peace to others; to help them be a better mother, to strengthen their families and community; one room at a time. Therefore, she started her foundation, Room for You, and partnered with The Fresh Start After Divorce Mentoring Program, The National Association of Divorced Women and Children,The Happy Wednesday Foundation, The Massachusetts National Guard Family Readiness Groupand hopefully many more wonderful organizations and charities in the future.

Together the Queen strives to give these families hope, peace and a fresh start, by redesigning a deserving person's room. She wants to create a room for them that is a retreat, a place they can relax and regroup to help them get through a difficult time and to know they are not alone.

The Queen requests your help.

Extending Charity to the Troops

The Room for You foundation also wishes to extend this gift to the families of our troops serving overseas. It is the Room Makeover Queen's desire to bring a smile to the face of a young child whose parent has been deployed by giving them a 'cool' new room, or to a spouse who's awaiting a loved one's safe return and can't wait for the homecoming. This program can also be a help to a sick person or a whole family where illness has caused great hardship. It is the Room Makeover Queen's desire to bring a smile to the face of a young child who may be facing an illness or whose parent has been deployed. To a spouse who is awaiting a loved one's safe return, or to a family who maying be facing tragedy or difficult times.   Having a room done just for that person, a space that reflects what he or she loves can bring peace and joy to someone's life. That is the goal the mission of the Room for You Foundation. and we hope to do this for as many families as we possibly can.

As the Queen spread goodness and cheer, she announced, "this is a small way I can give back and make a dramatic difference in the life of those in our communities and kingdoms who need us to help them stay positive during difficult times."
