Habitat Heros Link Party Kickoff

With the holiday season coming up, Julia from 551 East Furniture Design, wanted to create an event where people could help families and their community.  I was thrilled when Julia asked me to assist with hosting Habitat Heros, a link party to give back to your community.

You are invited to participate in a special link party where you can link up a piece of furniture you have restored and then donate this furniture to a charity of your choice such as Goodwill, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity Restores, local church groups, etc.

Link Party Name:  Habitat Heros
Dates:  October 20 through November 20
Host Blogs:  Julia from 551 East Furniture Design, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Jacqueline from Simple Home Life, and Katie from Wildwood Creek.  The link party will connect through all four host blogs.

Link party participants will:
1.  Link up a piece of furniture that you have restored.  This is a furniture only link party because the thrift stores greatest need is for furniture.
Please note that this link party is only for pieces of furniture that you have finished and will be donating to a charity, such as Habitat, Goodwill, etc. Please do not link up general re-does.  The purpose of this party is to give back to the community and to the places that help support us!
2.  Donate this piece of furniture to a charity of your choice.
3.  Follow one or all of the host blogs to ensure that you receive updates.
4.  Post the Habitat Heros link party button on your sidebar.

Link party hosts will:
Choose one project each week and feature the creator's project and blog.

On November 21 all entries will be entered into a drawing for one lucky participant to win a package prize consisting of:

Anthropologie $30 gift card $25 gift card
Hobby Lobby $30 gift card
Target $30 gift card

Many of us purchase furniture from thrift stores and then paint, restore, and sell those pieces for a profit.  This is a great opportunity to give to those in need and give back to the stores where we purchase our thrifty finds.

Refinishing furniture is hard work and many of us are trying to make a living off of our work. With that said, I understand that this is asking a sacrifice of people, especially with the economy, but with everyone's help we can bless many families.  Imagine how awesome it would be to walk into a thrift store and see a beautiful piece of furniture that you could afford!  Everyone deserves a beautiful and safe home.

Please help spread the word about the Habitat Heros link party by posting on your blog or Face Book.  I am so excited to join with you to restore a piece of furniture to be donated.

Thanks for joining the party!
