As we continue to plan for our Both Hands project, we have a small list of jobs to do at Sandie's home - painting, a ceiling fan, renovating a powder room... As we considered the costs of supplies, we decided to write a brief letter and go to the Home Depot near Sandie's house. I spoke with one of the managers of the store, while Alicia and Ariana were on a completely different mission - selecting paint for the nursery. After I explained the project to the store manager and sheepishly asked if Home Depot would be willing to help, she said that they thought it was a great idea and wanted to help us out. Home Depot provided us with $100 towards supplies and she gave me her card saying that when/if we need more support, give her a call. This was such an encouragement to us as we continue organizing this project. Our team is coming together - we have over 20 people committed to helping with the work on Sandie's home. We have a team "foreman" who met with Sandie and went through her home to figure out a list of projects. We sent out our personal letter to friends and family. We have our "Kick-off" meeting scheduled for this Tuesday evening to meet with our team and pray together. We are really looking forward to working hard to help and encourage Sandie. Thank you for your prayers and support.
By the way - the color for the nursery will be a light pink!
