It’s that time of year again!!! Time to give back with what God has given me, It’s time for the 2022 St Jude Dream Home on the Mississippi Gulf Coast! As a father of four children, I can’t imagine getting the news that one of my kids were sick, much less with an illness as serious as cancer. St Jude does such Tremendous work in this field! Not only do they care for these kids in their time of need, but they do it free of charge for the families going through such a difficult time. And not only that but they share ALL their research in order to attempt to put an end to childhood cancer!!!

So when presented with the chance to help, even if just in a small way , this cause… I jumped at the opportunity to pitch in.

This year I made a couple of bathroom accent pieces: a power carved stool as well as a live edge bath caddy from some local Pecan. The designers love the pieces and they were able to raise $850,000 for this noble cause in just a few weeks!

St Jude does these Dream Home Projects all over the U.S. so find and support your local cause and contribute to the great work they do!!!

As they say in these parts, Ya dun good!

I’ll have to look into doing something like this but not sure there’s anything local.

Thanks! Certain builders usually do them in each area of the country. It has been a thing for a while here in South Mississippi, the developer i work with has done it for the past seven years! Next year they want to shoot for a Million dollars raised for St Jude!! They raffle the house off so for $100 ticket you can win a house that is valued at about $400,000 so it is a win for all involved!

The carved stool is really clever, have not seen one like that before.
