It is with joy that my dream is coming true of building together our IAHSP Foundation. It is through our IAHSP Foundation that we will provide vision, service, scholarships, community service, and carry out our mission of changing the lives of people around the world through the world of Home Staging. A key commitment of the IAHSP Foundation is to host the Worldwide Staging Community Service Week once a year. This year, the event will take place in communities across the United States from Monday, September 12, 2011 until Monday, September 19, 2011. Members of all of our IAHSP Chapters worldwide stop during this week their regular Staging work and businesses to work together in their own communities to help a community organization by giving freely of their time, service, and talent for a Staging project. This is given from the heart as a way of giving back and saying thank you for your faith in ASP/ASPMs everywhere and to return to the community added service and value where we live and work in our communities around the world. As Accredited Staging Professionals and Accredited Staging Professional Masters and Members of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals we believe in our communities and strive to bring our best to all those we serve throughout the year. On this IAHSP Community Worldwide Staging Community Service Week® we are honored to stop and show how much we care through this yearly event of giving and sharing where we live and work throughout the year. The IAHSP Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to serving those in need in our communities throughout the United States and Canada through the gift and magic of ASP Home Staging. Our goal is to enrich the lives of those in need around us, whether they are individuals, organizations or institutions. In the past we have helped many of those in need, including Ronald MacDonald Houses, Foster Care Support Foundations, The House of Ruth, The Margaret House for Women, The Children’s Home Society and individual homes. Finally, let me share the motto of the IAHSP Foundation: “Think Globally and Act Locally, Together We Can Accomplish Anything!” as we together accomplish the dreams of so many organizations and people all around our nation during next month’s IAHSP Community Worldwide Staging Community Service Week®. How can you help? As you can see, our needs are varied depending on the scope of each project. If you are interested as an ASP in helping us or being a National Business Affiliate to assist on a national, regional or local basis, please contact us at [email protected], we look forward to hearing from you and together we can accomplish our charity’s goals.
