About the Cause:
Special Spaces Buffalo creates dream bedrooms for children with life threatening illnesses. Special Spaces is a non-profit organization, it is 100 percent volunteer run and relies entirely on the generous donations of its contributors to provide our kids with their very own special space.
"I've been volunteering with Special Spaces Buffalo since August 2013. I learned of them from a weekend morning news story and it just kind of reached out and grabbed my attention. The first bedroom makeover I was part of was for Ashley. After that weekend I was hooked. The core team is amazing and continues growing. We have volunteers who paint amazing murals, print and install vinyl murals that cover entire walls, build furniture, create gorgeous window treatments, donate furniture, and even more!
Since then the awareness of Special Spaces Buffalo has grown an extraordinary amount, and unfortunately there is never a shortage of children in need of their own special space. When I first began volunteering I was told they usually completed about eight to ten rooms a year. There have already been five makeovers in three months in 2015!"
