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.

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!

Mother’s Day Gifts Brighten Holiday For Women In Shelters

On Mother’s Day, we celebrate our mothers, the woman  like no other. She gave us life, nurtured us, taught us, dressed us, fought for us, held us, shouted at us, kissed us, but most importantly loved us unconditionally.

There are not enough words we can say to describe  how important our mothers are to us, and what a powerful influence she continues to be to us… 

In the middle of all the celebrations, it’s important to remember that so many mothers will spend this special day experiencing abuse or taking refuge in shelters.  On any given night in Canada, 3,491 women and their 2,724 children  are forced to sleep in an emergency shelter to escape domestic violence. Every night, about 300 women and their children  are turned away because the shelters are full.

Violence against mothers impacts children too. The effects are persistent and far- reaching. Children who witness domestic abuse can experience learning challenges as well as behavioral and mental health issues that can extend long into adulthood. Studies show that these children can be more likely to repeat the cycle, growing up to become victims or abusers themselves.

This Mother’s Day, we can reconnect our love for our moms and our respect for all women by joining or replicating a program 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 that turns donations into supports for women in abusive relationships through the wonderful efforts of Herizon House Women’s Shelter.

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.

Mother’s Day Gifts Brighten Holiday For Women In Shelters!

We reached out to the community once again for their support  and asked for their assistance to help us celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday May 14, 2017 by donating items along with our own to put together in  special gift bags that would be donated to the women at Herizon House Women’s Shelter.

 

Angels Who Gave From Their Heart 

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 collection deadline started April 3-May 7, 2017. All gift bags were donated on Wednesday 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!

Also called a “floating floor,” laminate can be installed directly over your existing plywood or subfloor or any other hard-surface floor, such as hardwood, concrete or linoleum. There is very little waste when using this flooring, unlike hardwood, laminate planks have no defects or imperfections.

Tips on Choosing The Right Backsplash

When remodelling a kitchen consider a back splash as part of your upgrades. Back splashes are a durable wall covering that protects your walls from water resulting in stains and molds. A kitchen is a high traffic area where most food preparation is made and is most likely come into contact with water and greasy foods spatters. Back splashes not only serve as protective barrier from these elements, back splashes also play an important role in the kitchen’s décor by harmonizing the various elements of design. Modern back splashes are an important link that completes a bigger picture and the over all look with your choice of kitchen counter top finish, your kitchen floor product choice and all other finishes. All these elements tie into the overall design compositions that “Screams” beautiful! With the right look and results, your kitchen could quite possibly become one of your favorite rooms in the house!  Learn more…
