2015 is in full swing and our first room makeover kicks off this week! We're excited about the project and helping a family transform a room into a sensory space for not one but two sweet boys.
We have so many amazing volunteers that ensure our room makeovers happen, our belly bands get made and shipped, that equipment gets recycled and that people hear about us. It is often overwhelming to think about all the moving parts of Cecily's Closet because there are a lot of them! We love this non-profit and we're passionate about keeping it going!
We need your help!
We are on the hunt for Project Leads! We have a large base of repeat volunteers who help annually, semi-annually on room makeover projects, book drives, toy drives, and more. If you've ever volunteered but never taken the reigns of a project - this is your chance! We are desperately looking for more talented men, women and self-starting individuals that will step forward to help lead a room makeover!
Do you need design experience? No.
Do you need to be a contractor? No.
Do you need to be super creative, Martha Stewart, or a craft junkie? No.
Do you need to worry about raining funds, securing an artist or getting a room painted? No.
You just need to be willing to try! We'll do the rest. :)
What we need is someone who can follow our room in a box plan and do their very best to make a difference in the life of a family. We're not Extreme Home Makeover. What we offer is a Sweet Dream Decorative Room Makeover designed to provide a boost for children with special needs and their families in San Diego. While we strive for the best result possible - the gift we provide is much larger than the room captured in our photos or web site. It is purely the gift of helping.
We've been able to scale all of our programs but we need more Project Leads to really scale our organization. We have no paid staff and all board members and staff work for the love for the kids!
So how much time are we talking about? We think a room makeover takes most of our volunteers about 20 hours to pull together. We will provide the directions, a direct line of support, help and all the templates you would need to succeed! We can have you shadow room projects to ensure you feel comfortable with the challenge. We need you.
If you are interested, or know someone who is interested, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also looking to expand our current list of artists in the community. Please spread this post.
We are passionate about making a difference. We are passionate about you. All you need is a big heart and a giving spirit. We will help you with the rest.
Thank you for listening.
Onwards and upwards!
The Team at Cecily's Closet
