This lady exudes peace! “What is in your power is how you choose to use your life” @ilibagizaimmaculee Survivor of the Rwandan holocaust.

My heart is full! So grateful for more generous donations! $8000 more raised from the Serving Trays at the @haloempowersyouth Jefferson City Art Auction last night. The girls in the Jeff City housing program rallied to make some of the Serving Trays this past week after such a great response last weekend! This means more scholarships for youth and more funds for the HALOMaker program!

Beyond words! Over $16,000 raised from these Reclaimed Wood Serving Trays last night at the @haloempowersyouth Art Auction with funds going towards scholarships for the makers and the growth of this “HALO makers” program! So, so grateful HALO was on board when I approached them with this idea and really excited about the future of it! So inspired by the dedication of the HALO youth that handmade the trays! Thank you, thank you to all of the generous HALO supporters for their donation and another special thanks to everyone involved in this process to bring this idea to life! @haloempowersyouth @rebeccaclairphotography @urban_lumber_company @thomas.design.build @studiofloc5 @laurenpaynemuth #kchaloauction #halomakers #lifeskills #empoweringyouth #collaboration #socialchange #reclaimedwood #maker #kcmaker

The leather on this Reclaimed Serving Tray is handstamped by this HALO maker!! One great part of this process has been including the makers in the entire process of creating/photographing and marketing these serving trays. This maker was also the model during our lifestyle shoot where I discussed the importance of sharing how a product can be styled, giving the customer a better idea of how a product can be used. Thank you @rebeccaclairphotography for helping me capture these moments!
