In the five years I have been doing the blog I have avoided posts unrelated to decorating so please bear with me...... A few weeks ago I watched this video about the Gary Sinise Foundation, which helps soldiers returning from war. I was so taken by Sinise's dedication and the foundation; I cried throughout the video. Among other things, the foundation helps build "Smart Homes" for those returning with lost limbs. I contacted the foundation's headquarters in California to see if I could send accessories from Shed to help decorate the homes. They appreciated the offer, but understandably do not have the manpower to handle this type of donation. I sent money instead. With Veteran's Day here, I would like to do something from Shed for these amazing people who have gone through hell for us and I'm hoping you will help. Now through Saturday, when you make a purchase mention the Gary Sinese Foundation and 25% of your sale will be sent to the foundation. Even if it is a $20 candle, they will get $5. It makes a difference! The event will be in-store and on the website (which ships free anywhere in the US). Just mention Gary Sinise in the check out area. Thanks very much.
