Design Works is collecting locally for Texas and Florida!

Listen up!

**Update: Since the article was written, Hurricane Irma has hit Florida and devastated many families. We are expanding our diaper drive efforts to include Florida as well. Please continue to send (or let us know to pick up) diapers, wipes, adult diapers, baby supplies to, 494 8th ave, Floor 12. All of your help is much appreciated!

———————————————————————————————-

We know how horrible this situation is in Houston and we want to help. No-one comes together better than New Yorkers, so lets prove it. We have been brainstorming in the studio today, and have decided we are setting up a baby diaper & wipes collection to send to The Texas Diaper Bank. They are directly helping families everyday and we want to support them in their efforts and we need YOUR help!

We want to make it EASY:

  1. Drop off diapers/wipes/non-perishable baby supplies to our studio conveniently located on 35th & 8th Ave // 494 8th Ave, Floor 12
  2. Email lisa@designworksintl.com and let us know where WE can pick up your donations (anywhere M-F, South of 125th street)
  3. You can also send a box of diapers through Amazon to our Studio (https://goo.gl/Mx5gdk)
  4. We are sending the box on Monday, September 25th, so get your donations in before then! 

In memory and recognition of people who have been affected by the storm, we have created this print- We hope you enjoy.

Looking for other ways to help? The American Red Cross is accepting donations on its website. You can also text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10. Donations to the Salvation Army can be made online, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769) or texting STORM to 51555.

It’s “feel good moments” like this that make me smile and regain faith in our community, especially when the person we are talking about is my husband, Neil Breslau. I was also honored that one of our very own at Design Works International, Jim Simon took it upon himself to write a blog about the Libertad Urban Farm and Neil’s involvement in helping Tanya restore the farm after a thief took off with her produce that was ready to harvest and stole all her tools and destroyed the farm during this terrible experience. We like to say out of bad comes good and this story is a perfect example of just that….enjoy the read and video. We are all proud at Design Works International and hope that you will be as well…

Sincerely,Nancy Fire Breslau
