Design for a Difference now accepting nominations
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Over the last five years, eight makeovers have impacted more than 30,000 people in southern Wisconsin.
Design for a Difference is currently accepting nominations for this year’s makeover. Design for a Difference is a community driven movement, spearheaded by FLOOR360 with NBC15 as a media sponsor, that chooses one nonprofit in the Madison area to complete an entirely free interior makeover.
NBC15′s Leigh Mills sat down with Angela Skalitzky, director of FLOOR360′s Design for a Difference makeovers, and Rebecca Ryan, school director at Common Threads Family Resource Center, to talk about this year’s makeover. Common Threads Family Resource Center was last year’s makeover recipient. The makeover for Common Threads was $450,000 worth of giving from volunteer designers and countless businesses and donors.
Design for a Difference makeovers rely fully on donations from interior designers, businesses and the volunteers that make it happen. Volunteers will gather up in June to meet with the nonprofit selected and get a design plan together.
Anyone can nominate a nonprofit facility it believes deserves a free makeover in Madison and Milwaukee. To obtain a nomination form, visit Floor360′s website. The nomination deadline is April 24.
NBC15 is a proud partner of Design for a Difference.
