Service Selfie

This post is sponsored by The Home Depot, but all opinions and my stories are my own.

I’ve always felt strongly that everyone deserves to have a safe and comfortable home they love. For years our family coordinated a monthly service day so our church community could help others make improvements to their homes. We helped build new homes, completed small household projects, helped families prepare their homes for a move in or out, and also participated in neighborhood cleanups so communities would feel cared for.

Our service was primarily focused on military families as the need for support and help through difficult transitions and long seasons of deployments was so great. It has always been an honor to help improve their homes as a small act of gratitude for how much these families have sacrificed for our own safety and security at home.

I love The Home Depot Foundation’s annual Celebration of Service campaign which rallies Team Depot, The Home Depot’s associate volunteers, from September 1 through Veterans Day to improve the homes and lives of veterans nationwide. Team Depot volunteers are out in communities and partnering with nonprofits year-round, but during this two-month campaign they give back in every The Home Depot community to serve veterans.

Service Selfie - The Inspired Room

My wood maps of the usa family joins Team Depot in honoring veterans with our #ServiceSelfie. For each #ServiceSelfie nautical wood maps shared on Twitter and Instagram through Nov. 11, 2016, The Home Depot Foundation will donate $1, up to $500,000 in total, to five nonprofits who serve veterans: Meals on Wheels America, Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, Team Rubicon, Student Veterans of America and Volunteers of America.

You can help out, too, by snapping a selfie (just yourself or with a group) while giving back to your community! Post your photo on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #ServiceSelfie, then like, comment and repost the service selfies of others participating to help spread the word and increase the donations. You can learn more about the campaign at thd.co/givingback

I would love to see your #ServiceSelfie, so tag me @theinspiredroom, too!
