Design For A Difference, a community driven design movement, announced Home Is Where The Heart Is, a nationwide contest that awards community heroes with free flooring and expert advice for a complete room makeover.
Design For A Difference is the charitable program launched by The International Design Guild (IDG), an alliance of over 60 locally-owned and operated floor covering showrooms throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Starting now, neighbors, friends and family can nominate their favorite community hero for a chance to win free flooring and design advice valued at up to $10,000, plus a one-on-one design consultation with a leading design expert. Additionally, there are four secondary prizes awarded valued at up to $2,500.
Home Is Where The Heart Is is not only geared toward front line workers but also anyone who has helped hold the community up during this trying time.
“No nomination will be turned away,” said Mark Brunetz, celebrity designer and national spokesperson for Design For A Difference. “Over the past seven years, we’ve rolled up our sleeves and transformed over 250 spaces at charities across the country, but 2020 is different. We’ve watched individuals step up and embody the best of humanity during these challenging times, so now we’re expanding our efforts to reward these heroes directly. Any person who has contributed in a meaningful way to help and inspire during the pandemic is eligible to receive the makeover prizes. And I will personally be providing the design consultation for the winner.”
Keith Spano, president of IDG, said the new initiative comes at an important time in Design For A Difference’s evolution. “We’re proud to have members who are socially conscious, and who have been giving back to deserving organizations in their communities since this program launched in 2013,” said Spano. “By shifting our focus in 2020, we’re looking to reward deserving individuals who are the unsung heroes.”
