Winter Wonderland Festival

Bainbridge Island

December 8, 2018


Bainbridge Island threw it’s third annual Winter Wonderland Festival this last Saturday. It is a festival that is put together by the community park + recreation center as a way to bring the community together for the Holidays. At the event there was choirs/bands from different school around the county, face painting girl scouts, middle school cheerleading performers, ice carvers, local sheriffs helping with s’mores, + county vendors giving out plenty of treats and cider! DesignsofSanctuary joined the fun as a way to give back to the families in the community! While one person on our team stayed inside diligently face painting the little ones, another one dressed up as a penguin + woddled around to take pictures with friends and families. All in all it was a spectacular evening with a lot of food, crafts, and activities. We encourage you to get out into your community + attend any social events there are. It is a great way to get involved + build relationships with the people who live in your area. We promise it’s something you won’t regret.


Habitat for Humanity Bremerton

November 10, 2018


Habitat is a global non-profit organization that works in local communities across the United States and in 70 different countries. According to their website, their vision is of “a world where everyone has a decent place to live”. DesignsofSanctuary (DS) has similar morals where we believe each homeowner deserves a home they love. The November we partnered up with Habitat by helping out with their ReStore. What is a ReStore you may ask? Well, Habitat owns several second hand stores where people can go to buy affordable products for home renovations/ home decorating. We helped them move several pieces of furniture within the store, sorted donations, + even decorated a Thanksgiving front window! We believe that everyone should be able to access affordable house items + after being in the store we can truly say it is a friendly environment that everyone should visit.


FMSC Eagan

October 27, 2018


Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a non-profit organization that works year round to supply malnourished children with nutritious meals. DesignsofSanctuary acknowledges the importance of health (hence the slogan “health & interiors”) and is founded on the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to thrive from a healthy home and life. This October we partnered up with FMSC to bag meals for children across the world. It was a fun team building experience that we will remember for years to come. We met so many others that wanted to help just like us and collectively bagged over 1,028 MannaPacks (nutritious meals). That means we worked to feed a total of 216 children for an entire year. FMSC is a wonderful organization that has been helping to end hungry for over 31 years. The food they provide is distributed to schools, orphanages, medical clinics, and feeding programs across the globe. They serve 70 different countries and continue to expand each year. We highly encourage you to take the time to either volunteer with them individually or volunteer through us when we partner up with them again.


FareStart Seattle

October 13, 2018


Seattle has the third highest homelessnesss population in the United States with just over 10,000 people living on the streets and in shelters. While DesignsofSanctuary does not tailor to the homeless, we find it important to give back to those who do not have the luxury of a roof over their heads or food in their stomachs. So, this October we partnered with FareStart Seattle to help prepare meals for people around the city. FareStart is a non-profit social entrepreneurial organization that works with restaurants and cafes to teach work skills to those in poverty. In addition, they provide food to shelters and schools around the metro area every week. We are so happy we got the chance to see what goes on behind the scenes and how much this organization does to help others. Throughout the day we worked to chop vegetables, prepare sandwiches, cut meat, and package meals to ship out to several shelters in the city. It was a lot of work, but we made friends and had so much fun giving back to the community.
