Design that Gives Back

As we're coming out of a deep recession (we are coming out, aren't we??) and heading into the emotional week surrounding the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we wanted to keep our eyes on the positive here at Simplifying Fabulous! There are so many companies, groups and individuals that are taking the glass-is-half-full approach that are giving back in a time when abundance can seem scarce. I invite you to join in tomorrow evening at 5pm ET on Twitter to chat about design, charity and giving back! #DesignTV is a weekly design-centered forum run by hosts Amy from ABCD Designs and interior designer Jonathan Legate (both who are also attending Blogtour2011!) as a way for like-minded folks to join together, throw around ideas, share resources and look to eachother to inspiration. Each week focuses on a different topic from "travel as design inspiration" to "hostess gifts!" This week, I'm thrilled to be subbing in for Amy as co-host as we focus on design and charity. Whether you run a company that has a charitable edge, are a designer who wants to use socially conscious resources, or to share a cause close to your heart, I think that everyone will benefit from the conversation!

If you've never taken part in a Twitter chat before, I recommend signing onto Tweetchat.com and follow DesignTV! > The two images above are examples of the work of Alpha Workshops, a not-for-profit organization that trains and employs people living with HIV/AIDS in the decorative arts

Do it right the first time. It will save you time, energy, and money!

Spend the money to do something right and buy what you love. It may seem like it’s costing more than you’d like, but it always costs more to re-do it later!
