Sit With A Cause: Chair-ity

My sister is amazing. Not only is she an incredible teacher, friend, wife, sister, and daughter, but she is also super creative and crafty. Recently, her husband told her a story he had heard on Dave Ramsey's daily broadcast about a man who turned his life and community around by flipping furniture. He encouraged her to think about doing something along the same lines because of her many talents and passions.

Within 48 hours, my sister had a purchased furniture off of Craigslist, refinished it and SOLD it! The coolest part about it all is that a portion of her profits will be going to Wings of Hope Hospice in Allegan, MI, where our family has volunteered for many years. She has a goal of being able to donate $500 by December.

Step 2 was a website. We chatted and worked simultaneously tonight via Skype to set up a blog to keep track of her furniture flipping journey. It turned out so well! Be sure to take a look and think about donating any furniture to her cause.

I am a proud big sister tonight! Check out Chair-ity to learn more about Kristen's plans for making a difference in SouthWest Michigan. :)
