Pink Saturday-Prepare For A Miracle!

Dear Pink Saturday Friends:

Many of you will remember when Beverly and I co-hosted a comment party for Colette Gauthier who was suffering with cancer. She had moved into a tiny and dismal rental home. You all commented and my foundation Design Gives Back donated a dollar for each comment. Well, as the Inspired Home expert for Guideposts Magazine, I took a crew up to Michigan in the midst of winter to perform a "Miracle Makeover" and create a healing room for her to recover in throughout her treatment. The story is in the September Guideposts Magazine and the Miracle Makeover video is coming out too. It is deeply inspiring. A must see. And it all started with your comments, thoughts, and prayers!!!! The Pink Saturday bloggers are even in the credits.

To celebrate the power of "creative miracles" Saturday August 28 will be a Pink Saturday Miracle Party! We want you to share in the joy and inspiration! Please dedicate your post to sharing an uplifting story, picture or other inspiring idea. Also, we ask that you post about the Guideposts story and video. We would love for the video to go all over the internet. It is amazing and Colette shines! You have to see the room to believe the transformation. It brings HOPE. Colette was given a 5-15% chance of survival. You can see her story in the reveal.

We can also earn more money by our comments for another makeover for another deserving person or family!

I love you! Kelee Katillac

This is a great idea, I have lost family members to Cancer (years ago when I was too young to know how to help) I would have loved to be a ble to help someone, but when that happened I was just a child, but now I know better and would love to help even if its in just a small way.Look forward to my post on Saturday on
