2017 Helping Hands Trees of Hope Project Update-Don of all Trades

Visit our COMMUNITY PAGE AT http://www.donofalltrades.ca to find out how you can help!

Over the past 5 months our team here at Don of all Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services have been working hard behind the scenes by doing good to help make a difference in our community through our Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Program.

We appreciate the continued support we have received from friends, family members, clients and local businesses who have all donated a Helping Hand in order for our  very special program to continue to grow over the last 3 years.

We want everyone one to know that although we get many wonderful comments about how The Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Program is inspiring to so many, we want everyone to know that this is a team effort from everyone in the community and because of all of you who have helped Don of All Trades help with our  commitment to making our communities a better and safer place for women and their children through the wonderful efforts of Herizon House Women’s Shelter, WE THANK YOU!

By supporting women shelter organizations, we acknowledge that in order to end the cycle of violence we must work in partnership with our community.

We look forward to continuing by doing good this year with more fun and exciting charity fundraiser events to give back to our  community.

PLEASE WELCOME OUR 2017 HELPING HANDS ON OUR THIRD TREE OF HOPE!

 

 

So what has Don of all Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services been up to lately?

Sunday March 12, 2017-Celebrating International Women’s Day

This lunch was  dedicated to some  very special women who have shown so much kindness, strength, courage, support, friendship, empowerment, generosity, love and dedication over the years at our team thought it would only be fitting to celebrate with in their honor at our   second annual Don of all Trades International Women’s Day Lunch!

We received  generous donations of non perishable food items, women’s gift sets, hand creams and various baby items  that was  donated to Herizon HouseWe helped donate over 147 items at this event to help the women and their children  fleeing abuse and violence through the wonderful efforts of Herizon House.

Mother’s  Day Gifts Brighten Holiday for Women In  Shelters

Wednesday May 10, 2017- Angels Who Gave from their Heart!

This past Mother’s Day, we  reconnected our love for our moms and our respect for all women by assembling a very special project initiated by the Don of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services of Durham Region.  Our team  runs “The Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Project”,   a program that we created which turns donations into supports for women in abusive relationships.

We felt that there was  no better day this year to celebrate our moms by recognizing the value of all women and making a big difference for a victim of domestic violence.

Photo: 11 very special and meaningful gift bags to help send a heartfelt message to women in shelters that there are people in the community that care and that there is always Hope.

A total of 11 Mother’s Day Gift Bags would be donated with the help of some wonderful angels who gave from their heart. Special items that were donated to add to these very special and meaningful gift bags ranged from   journals, adult coloring books, pencil crayons,  chocolates, mini manicure sets, Loofah, Timmy’s Cards, wrap, bows, gift bags, hand creams, jewelry, bath salts, body care products, hand soaps, candles and coffee. Our collections started in early April and all bags were assembled, completed and donated on Wednesday, May 10. Just in time for Mother’s Day. We would also like to mention that  everyone who made a contribution also added a new Helping Hand to our Third Tree Of Hope which we wish to complete by December 2017!

Special Moments  of Some Special Events We Hosted in 2015

 

Don Of All Trades Celebrates International Women’s Day

 

Don Of All Trades Celebrates International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is an annual celebration on March 8 of every year showing respect, honor and appreciation towards women across the world. It is also a recognition of the economic, political and social achievements that women have fought for over the years.

Don Of All Trades Celebrates International Women's Day

Quick History of International Women’s Day

This celebrates the accomplishments (usually overlooked) of women as well as recognizing their achievements and the struggles that they have gone through.

The first International Women’s Day was celebrated in 1909 to honor to 1908 garment women’s strike in New York. The women were protesting their horrific working conditions.

 

On Saturday March 5, 2016  Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services  not only  wanted  to tell these women  why they  are so important, but to thank them for being there for us and for doing the great things that they do. We held an International Women’s Day Celebration luncheon in their honor. We are so happy how this event turned out that we are already planning for next year’s International Women’s Day Luncheon! We hope that  everyone who attended enjoyed this event as much as we did.

Here’s how our  wonderful afternoon unfolded below.

Lots of tears shed and hugs given today during our speech taking the time to specifically acknowledge and thank each of these very special women for their contributions, support and sacrifices they have made in our lives, in their own and society.

This was a “caught off guard moment”  when Lisa the Events Coordinator at Herizon House presented us with this Certificate of Appreciation awarded to our Helping Hands Building Trees of  Hope Project. It was a very proud and humbling moment.

Vanity Bath Upgrades-Don Of All Trades

Ancona-Seaside Cottage Bath Vanity-Don Of All Trades

If your budget only allows to make one upgrade to your bathroom décor, consider a new bathroom vanity. Vanities are the focal point of any bathroom. Have you ever noticed how your eyes go right to the mirror? This happens because contemporary bathroom vanities convey the first impression of the room. You gain a great opportunity to get an excellent design return on investment by just simply upgrading one piece.

Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services recently replaced an outdated bathroom vanity including the sink, countertop and faucet and replaced it with this new Seaside Cottage Bath Vanity Model.

The Seaside Cottage Bath Vanity adds a charm to the bathroom décor.  The Seaside Cottage features two cabinet doors and a drawer fitted with soft-closing hardware. The cabinet space and full-extension drawer will help  keep  bath essentials tucked away while the ceramic countertop provides ample room for toiletries. Fully handcrafted by skilled carpenters with 100% environmentally friendly rubber-wood; this premium quality vanity offers exceptional quality, durability and beauty.

 

Ancona-Seaside Cottage Bath Vanity-Don Of All Trades

Other Features Include:
Wood:
 Antique chestnut wood finish
  • 5 coats of stain applied by hand
  • 100% environmentally friendly rubber wood (no MDF or veneers)
  • Fully handcrafted by skilled carpenters

Ancona-Seaside Cottage Bath Vanity-Don Of All Trades

 

Ceramic Countertop:
  • White ceramic countertop
  • 1-integrated sink
  • Drilled for a 1-hole spread faucet (standard hole size)
Soft-Closing Doors:
The Seaside Cottage is designed with two soft-closing cabinet doors which feature charming antique bronze pulls.
Ancona-Seaside Cottage Bath Vanity-Don Of All Trades
Soft-Closing Drawer:
 The Seaside Cottage is designed with one soft-closing cabinet drawer which features a charming antique bronze knob.
Ancona-Seaside Cottage Bath Vanity-Don of All Trades
Assembly required:
 Counter top needs to be affixed to the cabinet base
  • Door pulls and drawer knobs to be screwed into pre-drilled holes
Specifications:
 Mirror not included
  • Faucet and pop-up drain not included
Dimensions (W x D x H):
101.6 cm (40 in.) x 41.91 cm (16.5 in.) x 83.82 cm (33 in.)
Ancona-Seaside Cottage Vanity-Don Of All Trades

This project involved  removing the sink from the vanity. The  water supply lines did not have  shut off valves so we  install two of them.

The next step was removing  the counter top and the original anchored vanity. New vinyl tiles were installed where the old vanity was originally located.

Our client saved money on flooring costs due to the fact that they had saved left over tile from when the floor was originally installed. The floor was grouted  which resulted in a perfect match.

This new Seaside Cottage Bath Vanity Model was installed including the La Toscana Novello Single Handle Lavatory Faucet Model tie everything together.
