Not For Profit Funeral Home gets Simplified by ME
BAL is a not for profit funeral home in Oakleigh, Melbourne who assist those less fortunate by providing dignified funerals & counselling for bereaved loved ones.
They are finalists in the not for profit organisation of the year award & approached me to help makeover their outdated offices. I know the funeral industry
is far from sunshine & rainbows but I REALLY wanted to help them create a warm space for their volunteers & the people they help.
Thanks to some incredibly kind souls who donated their goods and time to help bring this together, here's the warp on what we achieved.
A HUGE thank you to the following contributors for their kind donations and valuable serices:
Sorrento Furniture @sorrentofurniture who donated a large 3 seat sofa & ottoman
