Extreme Makeover Kindness Edition 2012 – Homework Club

This year, when Sonya Kinkade asked a bunch of us to give her a hand to do another Extreme Makeover for Kindness week, we all responded with a resounding “YES!” Especially, seeing as it was for some deserving kids, who were trying to improve their space for doing homework.

And the lovely ladies who worked hard to get the space spic and span and all the items in place…(while I was being lazy, having just arrived home from a vacation in the wee hours of that morning).
