PRLog - July 25, 2012 - POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- Pompano Beach, FL (July 25, 2012) Award winning home improvement show Designing Spaces descended upon the Broward County campus of Kids In Distress for 3 weeks this summer in order to do a complete overhaul to the 2,800 sq ft run-down space that had been serving as an activity center for the children.
Designing Spaces - Spaces of Hope logo
Kids In Distress, is a nonprofit organization that works tirelessly towards the prevention of child abuse and neglect and the preservation of family by helping thousands of local South Florida families a year.
The special is presented by longtime Designing Spaces hosts Debbie Marie and David Jones who will follow the Designing Spaces Dream Team as they tear apart and re-build this multi-room center bringing the children a space for creativity and fun with elements such as a brand new library donated by Carl Buddig and RIF: Reading is Fundamental, as well as flat screen televisions and video game consoles donated by Sanyo and Nintendo.
Additionally GTP Flooring donated new floors throughout the entire space and Procter & Gamble supplied enough cleaning materials to ensure the space will continue to look sparkling new.
Major makeover specials like these present more of a challenge but the Designing Spaces Dream Team hardly noticed as they went about their “Labor of Love”. Even local celebrities got involved, like Panthers defenseman Ed Jovanovski, who rolled up his sleeves and wielded a paint brush as well as he does a hockey stick.
Revolutionary music group Black Violin and rapper Alexander Star, South Florida natives themselves, joined the reveal performing a very special concert for the children making the event into a full scale celebration.
Tune in on August 2nd and 9th to watch this uplifting incredible makeover and the journey it took to get there. Designing Spaces special “Kids Spaces of Hope – A Labor of Love” will air on Lifetime at 7:30 am (ET/PT).
