Philanthropy Thursday – Lunch on the Prairie benefiting Dwell with Dignity

It’s Philanthropy Thursday, here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos. Philanthropy comes in all forms, from helping someone, letting someone cut in line at the drive thru, lending a kind ear, thoughtful words. Anything you can do to better other’s lives. There are many, many charities out there that we can donate money to, and I’m not here to tell you who to chose. I just want to share inspirational stories with you about people that have been successful in their own efforts to help others.

One such charity is Dwell with Dignity. It’s another charity that proves whatever your talents are in life, there are really cool ways to share them and help others in the process. An interior designer named Lisa Robison started this charity, and it’s grown from there. Check out their website. And here’s a little about what they do.

Dwell with Dignity is a non-profit group of Interior Designers and volunteers dedicated to creating soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty. We provide and install home interiors for families that include furnishings and art, bedding and kitchen supplies, and food in the pantry. There mission is to help families escape poverty and homelessness through design. One household at a time.

I recently learned about this charity through a blog I love to follow called The Hidden List. Kelley at The Hidden List shares all sorts of really cool and fashionable things. The Hidden List, Royer’s Round Top Cafe, and Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic have all joined up to do something called LUNCH ON THE PRAIRIE.

And guess what that means!! It means here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos we’ll soon be packing our bags and going on a ROAD TRIP!!

Myself, along with Tiffany White and thirty-three other amazing bloggers get to attend this great event. The event is being held in Round Top, TX. Round Top is home to great antiques, The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell, as well as the famous Royers Round Top Cafe.

Here’s the invitation cuz it’s like so cool.

So be sure to check back on Thursday, September 29th, when I will be blogging about my experience and about Rachel’s amazing B&B, The Prairie.

Below is a list of blogs that will be represented at the lunch. You can also follow everyone’s progress and tweets about and during the event at #theprairielunch.
