Guys I am SO excited to get this link party started!! 

If you didn't catch the preview post earlier this week here's what's going on! 

With the holiday season coming up, I wanted to create an event where people could jump into the season by giving to their community.  I approached some of my blogging friends, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Jacqueline from Simple Home Life, and Katie from Wildwood Creek asking for their support in helping me host and I was thrilled when they agreed to help!

Habitat Heros is a special link party where we all can link up a piece of furniture we've restored and then donate it to a charity of your choice such as Goodwill, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity Restores, local church groups, etc.

Many of us purchase furniture from thrift stores and then paint, restore, and sell those pieces for a profit. 
Wouldn't it great to be able to give back to these organizations and to create a beautiful piece that someone could afford that they normally wouldn't be able to?!

Here are the rest of the details! 

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 and your work will be featured on each one.

Link party participants will:

1.  Link up a piece of furniture that you have restored.
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.

Here's the calendar for the weekly features 

October 27th Cassie from Primitive and Proper 
November 3rd: Julia from 551 East Design
November 10th: Jacqualine from Simple Home Life
November 17th: Katie from Wild Wood Creek

On November 21 all entries will be entered into a drawing for a totally awesome prize package which will consist of:

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

Gift card mania right?! 

I know 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 could bless SO many families lives. 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. :)

Thanks for joining the party you can link up anytime between now and Nov 20th!

And please don't forget to post this on FB or your blogs to help get word out!!

The link party attached to this post is only for pieces that you have finished and will be donating to a charity, such as Habitat, or Goodwill.  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!
